The Wall Street Journal: Resumed U.S.-North Korea talks going well, Trump says, expects ‘very positive’ message from Kim

President Donald Trump said Thursday he expects North Korean officials to travel from New York to Washington on Friday to deliver a “very positive” letter to him from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Trump said he was hopeful that his meeting with Kim could still take place on June 12 in Singapore, and that he may need a second or third meeting with Kim to reach a final agreement. He said resumed talks have gone very well.

“I look forward to seeing what’s in the letter, but it’s very important to them,” he said. He spoke to reporters in Washington before boarding Air Force One on his way to Texas.

The comments came as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo completed a second day of talks with Gen. Kim Yong Chol, who is often described as the right-hand man to Kim Jong Un. Kim is the highest-ranking North Korean official to visit the U.S. in 18 years. Pompeo later told reporters the meetings had yielded progress. “We’re moving in the right direction,” he said.
