Syria’s leader will visit Kim Jong-un, North Korea says
03 June 2018, 09:05 | Tara Lloyd
A former adviser to President Donald Trump said North Korean leader Kim Jong Un hasn't yet met the USA leader and he "better prepare for" that.
"We talked about ending the war", Trump said on the south lawn after Kim Yong-chol left the White House. The photo made rounds on social media, where theories abound why Kim would have sent Trump what seemed as a comically oversized letter. The announcement came after Trump hosted a senior North Korean envoy at the White House, who conveyed a personal letter by Kim that was inside a white envelope almost as large as a folded newspaper.
Others compared the delivery to a novelty greeting card or an envelope used in a game show.
"I think it's probably going to be a very successful, ultimately a successful process", the United States president told reporters on the White House lawn.
The Washington Postreports that paying for North Korea's accommodation during the June 12 summit would conflict with US Treasury Department sanctions and require a waiver to be signed to temporarily bypass them. The general public still doesn't know what the letter says, though, so Americans are imagining what they think it contains - from elementary school crush lists to Jersey Shore references.
"I haven't seen the letter yet", he said answering another question at the same press conference. The huge letter is just part of meticulous steps taken by North Korea to present Kim as a legitimate worldwide statesman who is reasonable and capable of negotiating solutions and making deals, analysts say.
After the meeting, the North Korean delegates chatted with Trump on the White House lawn.
Mr Trump also dialled back on the rhetoric, eight days after abruptly cancelling the high-stakes summit because of Pyongyang's "open hostility", softening his signature tough stance against the reclusive regime. "We don't know for sure whether the planned summit will produce tangible results that North Korea and the USA will be satisfied with".
"Declaring an end to the Korean War is like providing a political guarantee for North Korea's security concerns during the transitional period of denuclearization", Cho told The Korea Herald on Saturday. The Trump administration hopes the Singapore summit will bring clear pledges from Kim to being rolling back the country's nuclear program.
Trump later teased the contents of the letter, but told reporters he hadn't yet opened it. "I think a little advice to Kim Jong Un" is in order, Bossert said.
