Trump-Kim Jong Un Meeting To Take Place, Confirms US President
Just days after cancelling out the June summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un scheduled in Singapore, U.S. president Donald Trump on Friday reinstating a summit. However, he also attempted to lower the expectations of a fast redressal of a denuclearization deal.
 
The announcement was made by Trump following a more than 90 minutes meeting with a top Kim aide - Kim Yong Chol, the vice-chairman of North Korea's Central Committee, at his Oval Office. Chol personally delivered a letter from the North Korean leader in a gesture that is being viewed to be an effort to reduce tensions following Trump’s abrupt decision to cancel the meeting last week and ensuing treats between Washington and Pyongyang. 
 
The summit, set for June 12, will most probably not yield the results what the U.S. had hoped for earlier in relation to a complete stop to the nuclearization program of North Korea, the president also hinted. 
 
"I never said it goes in one meeting," Trump told reporters, after the meeting with Kim Yong Chol at the White House. "I think it's going to be a process. But the relationships are building, and that's a very positive thing."
 
This is the first meeting where a sitting U.S. president would meet a North Korean leader and the meeting has been described by Trump as "a beginning" and a "getting to know you meeting-plus".
 
"You're talking about years of hostility; years of problems; years of, really, hatred between so many different nations," Trump said. "But I think you're going to have a very positive result in the end. Not from one meeting."
 
Trump’s comments were suggestive of an acceptance by the Trump administration of what many former U.S. officials believed - Kim Jong Un does not intend to immediately give up his arsenal of nuclear weapons and missiles that has been amassed by the country over decades. 
 
In the past, there have bene accusations by the U.S. against North Korea of the later violating agreements and conducting nuclear and ballistic missile tests. Trump said on Friday: "I think they want to do that. I know they want to do that" when he was asked whether he was confident that North Korean leaders would be committed to denuclearization.
 
However, there could be necessity for more summit meetings with Kim, Trump also suggested.
 
"I told them, 'I think that you're going to have, probably, others,' " Trump said. "'Hey, wouldn't it be wonderful if we walked out and everything was settled all of a sudden from sitting down for a couple of hours?' No, I don't see that happening. But I see over a period of time."
