Trump Acknowledges Summit With North Korea’s Kim in Doubt

U.S. President Donald Trump said his planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un might not take place next month.

“If it doesn’t happen, maybe it will happen later,” Trump said. “It may not work out for June 12.”

Trump added, however, “There’s a good chance we’ll have the meeting,” terming the preliminary discussions between his administration and North Korean officials, so far, “a good experience.”

Trump also said of Kim that “I think he’s absolutely serious” about the planned talks.

Trump, speaking in the Oval Office alongside South Korean President Moon Jae-in, explained, “There are certain conditions that we want. I think we will get those conditions.”

Asked about the conditions, Trump replied, “I’d rather not say.” But he stated that the denuclearization of North Korea “must take place.”
