Donald Trump: North Korea summit talks 'going very well'

Last Friday, Suh and Kim were discussing how to prepare for the North Korea-U.S. summit, and how to improve inter-Korean relations as part of the follow-up measures to the April 27 Panmunjom Declaration.

"It's moving along very nicely", Trump said at the White House during a meeting with a USA prisoner freed by Venezuela.

It looks like Trump didn't tell anyone before he chose to pull out of the summit. "If we got that done and if we can be successful in the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, it would be a great thing for North Korea, it would be a great thing for South Korea, be great for Japan and great for the world - great for the United States, great for China".

In a letter to Kim on Thursday, Trump had said he was cancelling the planned Singapore summit, citing North Korea's "open hostility".

"He. expressed his intention to put an end to the history of war and confrontation through the success of the North-US summit and to cooperate for peace and prosperity", Moon told reporters in Seoul on Sunday.

Moon said the Saturday's summit - just the fourth-ever inter-Korean leaders' meeting - had been requested by Kim.

He said he expects the talks to go smoothly because Pyongyang and Washington both know what they want from each other.

"A meeting was held because officials of both countries thought that meeting face-to-face would be better than a phone call", Moon said, noting that the summit was in line with previous agreements for the two leaders to meet more often.

A statement from North Korea's state news agency KCNA said Kim expressed "his fixed will" on the possibility of meeting Trump as previously planned.

"The thing he was uncertain about was not denuclearisation but concerns on whether he could trust that the United States would end its hostile policy and guarantee the security of his regime when the North denuclearises itself".

In response, the North said Friday that it stays open to talks with the US anytime and in any format.

"However, during the U.S".

They agreed to have their top officials meet again on June 1.
