US President Donald Trump on Monday said that the second summit with foe-turned-friend North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un will take place “quite soon.” Speaking at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) session, Trump, who had last year branded Kim as “Little Rocket Man”, said that the relationship with North Korea was much improved after the historic Singapore summit.
“It was a different world. That was a dangerous time. This is one year later, a much different time,” PTI quoted Trump as saying.
The US president said that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was working out the details for the second meeting with Kim.
In a letter to Trump, the North Korean leader had last month requested for a second meeting. The Trump had said, “we will be doing that.”
Trump was at the United Nations for his second general assembly meeting with world leaders after taking over the office. He is also likely to meet South Korea’s Moon Jae-in on Monday to discuss North Korea and trade details.
After several rounds of war threats and rhetoric, Trump and Kim had met in Singapore in June 2018. During the meeting, both leaders had signed a “very comprehensive document” and pledged to work towards complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.
