Trump makes an about-face, revives summit with North Korean leader

Updated : June 02, 2018 01:29 PM IST

Eight days after canceling the unprecedented summit, citing Pyongyang's "open hostility," Trump welcomed North Korea's former intelligence chief, currently under punitive US sanctions, to the White House Oval Office.
Trump said it could take several meetings to reach an agreement, but he was convinced that Kim Jong Un was committed to denuclearization. "He'd like to see it happen," Trump said.
Trump said one thing that could come out of the summit is an agreement formally ending the 1950-53 Korean War, which was concluded only with a truce, not a peace treaty.
