President Trump said Saturday that he plans to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un “in the not too distant future,” alluding to a third possible summit between the two to leaders discuss denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
Trump tweeted early Saturday that Kim had sent him a letter seeking a meeting to start negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang following the conclusion of the United States’s joint exercises with South Korea.
“It was a long letter, much of it complaining about the ridiculous and expensive exercises,” Trump wrote, adding that Kim apologized for testing short range missiles and claimed the “testing would stop when the exercises end.”
“I look forward to seeing Kim Jong Un in the not too distant future! A nuclear free North Korea will lead to one of the most successful countries in the world!” he added.
