Trump-Kim at demilitarised zone confirmed

Agency News

Washington, Jun 30: US President Donald Trump confirmed on Sunday after his meeting with South Korean counterpart, Moon Jae-in, that he will go to the demilitarised zone (DMZ) on the Korean Peninsula and meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

"We are going to the DMZ border, and I will be meeting with Chairman Kim. I look forward to it very much, I look forward to seeing him, we developed a very good relationship," Trump said at a joint press conference with Moon.

Earlier, the US president said both he and the DPRK leader wanted their DMZ meeting, noting that he looked forward to the possible meeting in the DMZ, which has left the Korean Peninsula divided since the 1950-53 Korean War ended with an armistice.

However, he added that logistics and security for their DMZ meeting were complicated.

Trump invited Kim to meet in the DMZ through his Twitter message on Saturday, saying at a press conference in Japan that he would feel comfortable crossing the inter-Korean border into the DPRK territory, if Kim showed up. (UNI)
