South and North Korean leaders in surprise meeting today

TheBlueHouseKR Twitter

Tensions between North Korea and the United States had been building for years before Trump and Kim Jong Un agreed to hold what would be the first meeting between a USA president and a North Korean leader. "We are continuing to watch developments carefully".

Apparently, the president's comments came after North Korea said it was still willing to engage in direct talks, calling the planned summit between Trump and Kim "desperately necessary".

By Friday, North Korea had issued a statement saying it was still "willing to give the USA time and opportunities" to reconsider talks "at any time, at any format".

The United States has demanded the "complete, verifiable, and irreversible" dismantlement of North Korea's nuclear weapons programme.

South Korea's Moon said Trump's decision earlier this week to cancel his planned meeting with Kim, which he delivered via a bizarrely-worded letter, left him "perplexed" and was "very regrettable".

Nothing that North Korea borders Russia, Putin said resolution "is of critical importance, especially when the situation is on the brink of war".

He did not detail the nature of the new US communication with the North. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters diplomats were "still at work" and said Trump had just sent a note out on the summit, which could be back on "if our diplomats can pull it off".

The meeting came hours after Seoul expressed relief over revived talks for a summit between Trump and Kim following a whirlwind day that saw Trump cancel the highly-anticipated meeting before saying it's potentially back on.

"Trump says "everybody plays games".

"The Failing @nytimes quotes 'a senior White House official, ' who doesn't exist, as saying 'even if the meeting were reinstated, holding it on June 12 would be impossible, given the lack of time and the amount of planning needed, '" Trump tweeted. The delegation was to include White House Deputy Chief of Staff Joseph Hagin and deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel, U.S. officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity. "That tells you how much Koreans want peace on the peninsula".

The two leaders discussed their hopes for a U.S.

Trump on Friday night said the historic June summit with Kim could go ahead following talks between the two countries.

The North Korean regime has said Kim is ready to talk to Trump "at any time".

North Korea had indicated it wasn't happy with the way things were progressing when it called of high level talks with South Korea over joint US-South Korean military drills.

The leaders of the states have signed the Panmunjom Declaration for peace, prosperity and unity in the Korean Peninsula.

For President Donald Trump, Kim Jong Un (kim jawng oon) may be the deal that got away. But he said on Friday that he was reconsidering and that it may still take place as scheduled. Trump could envision Nobel laurels.

But Kim, through two summits with Chinese President Xi Jinping in March and May, has called for a phased and synchronized process in which every action he takes is met with a reciprocal reward from the United States.
