White House: Next Trump summit with Kim Jong Un will take place near the end of February
President Donald Trump will hold a second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in late February as the U.S. pushes Pyongyang to dismantle its nuclear and missile programs, the White House said Friday, CNBC reported.
The Trump administration said it would announce a location at a later date. The plans emerged after North Korean envoy Kim Yong Chol’s meetings Friday with both Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
“President Donald J. Trump met with Kim Yong Chol for an hour and half, to discuss denuclearization and a second summit, which will take place near the end of February,” the White House said in a readout of Trump’s meeting with the North Korean representative. “The President looks forward to meeting with Chairman Kim at a place to be announced at a later date.”
