US defense chief suggests Trump-Kim summit could be back on

Now that the two sides at least understand what the other wants and are willing to pledge, Moon said he expects "the summit will turn out fine", as USA and North Korean working level officials have resumed talks.

"Kim Jong-un thanked Moon Jae-in for much effort made by him for the DPRK-US summit scheduled for June 12, and expressed his fixed will on the historic DPRK-US summit talks", the KCNA reported in its English language dispatch monitored in Seoul. We'd like to do it. "That hasn't changed. So, we'll see what happens".

The two leaders embraced each other before parting after their second summit, possibly indicating a successful outcome for the talks widely expected to have focused on the US-North Korea summit.

"Thanks to your vision of achieving peace through strength, as well as your strong leadership, we're looking forward to the first-ever U.S".

"We have inwardly highly appreciated President Trump for having made the bold decision, which any other USA presidents dared not, and made efforts for such a crucial event as the summit", Kim Kye Gwan's statement said. "Sadly, based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate at this time to have this long-planned meeting". Kim Jong-un's comments published by the newspaper did not include any mention of his potential meeting with Trump. "It could even be the 12th", Trump told reporters at the White House.

The group did not supplant the State Department's traditional mode of communication with the North, which is known as the "New York Channel" and involves USA diplomats and their North Korean counterparts posted to the United Nations.

What about Mr Trump's cancellation letter? He urged Washington and Pyongyang to resolve their differences through "more direct and closer dialogue between their leaders".
