President Donald Trump has announced that his meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore will resume on June 12, a week after it was scrapped.
The president announced this after talks with North Korean envoy Kim Jong Chol at the White House.
General Kim Jong Un handed a handwritten letter from Kim Jong Un to President Trump.
Initially, President Trump said the letter was “very interesting,” but later said he had not yet opened it.
He also said the issue of officially ending the Korean War would be on the table in Singapore.
The war of 1950-1953 ended only with a truce and not with a final peace treaty.

President Trump told reporters on the White House lawn: “We will meet on June 12 in Singapore. It went very well. ”
“We need to get to know their people very well.” he added.
President Trump has warned that the summit may not reach a final deal on North Korea’s controversial nuclear program.
“I never said it was a meeting. I think it will be a process, but the relationship is building and it is very positive. “ President Trump said.
The historic meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un will be the first between the sitting leaders of the United States and North Korea. President Trump has offered to help rebuild North Korea’s economy by abandoning its nuclear weapons. Kim Jong-un says he is involved in “denuclearization” in some form, but his exact demands are unclear.
