President Trump to meet with North Korean leader in Vietnam

Kim had agreed in principle to "complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula" but United States intelligence agencies have said the country's nuclear program has continued.

"If I had not been elected president of the United States, we would right now - in my opinion - be in a major war with North Korea", Trump argued.

During the address, Trump also revealed that he would be meeting with Kim Jong Un in the future, stating, "Much work remains to be done, but my relationship with Kim Jong Un is a good one. Chairman Kim and I will meet again on February 27 and 28 in Vietnam", he added.

Trump has touted his first summit with Kim, held last June in Singapore, as a major foreign policy achievement and claimed the country no longer poses a nuclear threat.

The second meeting between the two leaders was announced by the White House on January 18 following discussions with Kim Yong Chol, North Korea's lead negotiator on nuclear talks. Pyongyang also dismantled one of its test sites and made a significant effort to improve its relations with South Korea, despite the continued presence of 30,000 U.S. troops there.

Trump has largely downplayed such reports. Nuclear testing has stopped.

As compensation, the US might take steps aimed at, "improving US-North Korea relations, building a peace regime and implementing trust-building measures", the report said. Zero evidence. Trump was the one who terrified the Pentagon leadership with his talk of attacking North Korea, "New York Times columnist Nick Kristoff said on Twitter".

Declaring an end to the Korean war and starting multilateral negotiations would aid the creation of a peace regime, while promoting humanitarian assistance and repatriating the remains of U.S. soldiers killed in the Korean war would aid trust building, it said.
