Trump says discussions with DPRK underway, leaves open possibility of June 12 summit
US President Donald Trump said on Friday discussions with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) are underway and it’s possible a planned summit with DPRK leader Kim Jong Un could still take place on June 12 as originally planned.
"We're going to see what happens. We're talking to them right now. It could even be the 12th ... We'd like to do it," Trump told reporters, one day after he canceled the highly anticipated meeting.
Shortly after the DPRK's demolition of its "famous and secret" nuclear test site, Trump responded with a surprising cancellation letter.
Trump blamed "open hostility" from the DPRK for his decision to call off the talks, and warned the DPRK against committing any "foolish or reckless acts."
