leader Kim Jong Un will begin during the morning of June 12, the White House said on Monday, offering the two leaders plenty of time for follow-up meetings in the afternoon.
“The first meeting will be on June 12 at 9:00 am, Singapore time,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in her daily media briefing. “We feel things are continuing to move forward and good progress has been made. The president has been receiving daily briefings on North Korea from his national security team.”
The spokeswoman declined to disclose the content of the letter sent last week by Kim to Trump, saying only that it was “interesting.”
South Korean President Moon Jae-in reportedly is considering a visit to Singapore for a trilateral summit following the Trump-Kim meeting. With South Korea holding local elections on June 13, Moon is expected to oversee the start of voting in the morning and fly to Singapore later that day.
