White House Releases Photos Of Trump Greeting Hostages

The location and date of the summit - the first ever between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader - were revealed hours after 3 American prisoners were released by North Korea and arrived back in the United States.

Trump said Thursday he plans to meet with Kim on June 12 in Singapore in what will be the first ever summit between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader. We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!"Mr Trump tweeted". The repressive Kim regime tightly controls news sources, after all, so their impressions are highly skewed. "He's been determined to come to grips with this from day one".

The White House said Friday that the president thanked the prime minister for his willingness to host the June 12 meeting.

Trump appeared buoyed by the North's release of three Americans of Korean descent on Wednesday.

President Trump, who was accompanied by his wife Melania, told waiting reporters it was "nice" of the North Korean leader to release the three men ahead of their planned summit.

The Singapore announcement follows US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's second visit to Pyongyang to finalise plans for the summit.

For the first time, the president provided details about the history-making meeting between a sitting American president and the leader of North Korea over denuclearisation.

Pompeo traveled to Pyongyang twice to meet with Kim in recent months, in a precursor to the Trump-Kim meeting.

Located at the southern tip of Malaysia, Singapore is a regional hub in Southeast Asia whose free enterprise philosophy welcomes trading partners from everywhere. The US and North Korea, Kang said, are "very clear" that the sanctions remain in place until and unless they see visible, meaningful action taken by North Korea to denuclearise.

Once dubbed an "Asian Switzerland", Singapore represents neutral ground for the two leaders.

Singapore is also popular for hosting high-profile diplomats, the most well-known being in 2015 when Chinese President Xi Jinping met former Taiwan leader Ma Ying-jeou.
