Days before summit, Trump raises prospect of easing North Korea sanctions
Updated : February 21, 2019 06:37 AM IST
Speaking to reporters at the White House on Wednesday, Trump also said he expects to meet with Kim again after their February 27-28 summit in Hanoi, the Vietnamese capital.
Trump said he did not think North Korea was reluctant to denuclearise, in spite of a lack of concrete progress since he and Kim met for a first summit in Singapore in June.
Trump's comment was his most explicit yet that the United States might be willing to consider easing sanctions on North Korea before Pyongyang completely abandons its nuclear weapons program.
