WASHINGTON, The United States – US President Donald Trump announced that he will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un at some point in the next few weeks, speaking from Washington DC on Friday.

“I’ll be meeting with Kim Jong-un in the coming weeks as we seek to denuclearise the North Korean area and the entire Korean Peninsula,” said Trump.

The US leader also commented on Kim Jong-un’s meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, saying “I want to express my hope that all of the people of Korea, North Korea and South, can some day live in harmony, prosperity and peace and it looks like it could happen.”

“Hopefully, the day will come when Olympic athletes can compete on a Korean Peninsula that is free of nuclear weapons and where all Koreans can live together and can share their dreams. It’d be a wonderful thing to do,” he added.

Kim Jong-un is the first North Korean leader since the division of the two nations in 1945 to ever cross over to the South, following Friday’s visit.
