Kim writes the "positive and cordial" letter from Trump – the US plans the second North Korean summit

Tokyo / New YorkThe US and the government in North Korea are preparing a second summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. White House spokeswoman, Sarah Sanders, announced this in Washington this Monday. Trump received a letter from Kim asking for a second meeting, she said.

The letter was very positive and cordial. We are already examining how a meeting can be planned. "It is something that we want it to take place and we are already working to make this possible," Sanders said. A decision had not yet been made, she emphasized. According to Sanders, a copy of the letter will not be released without permission from Pyongyang.

This seems to be moving again in the stalled negotiations between the US and North Korea on the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. It was not until the end of August that Trump canceled a planned visit by his foreign minister Mike Pompeo in the short term. As a reason, Trump at that time stated that he was not satisfied with the previous results of the talks. After the cancellation, the US had even threatened to resume suspended military maneuvers with South Korea should diplomatic progress continue.

In recent weeks, however, Kim continued to indicate the willingness to talk. Last week he confirmed not only his continued commitment to the agreements in the joint statement signed by Trump and Kim during their historic summit meeting in Singapore in June. According to the negotiators of South Korea, Kim also wants to realize denuclearization during the term of Trump, which is practically the next two years.
