Trump plans to meet North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un at the Korean Demilitarized Zone//AIWA

US President Donald Trump indicated he would be willing to meet North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un at the Korean Demilitarized Zone. In response, North Korea released a statement saying it was a “very interesting suggestion”, but that they haven’t received an official proposal.

After some very important meetings, including my meeting with President Xi of China, I will be leaving Japan for South Korea (with President Moon). While there, if Chairman Kim of North Korea sees this, I would meet him at the Border/DMZ just to shake his hand and say Hello(?)!

Trump says he’s willing to meet Kim Jong Un at the DMZ while visiting South Korea, touting his relationship with the North Korean leader. “It’s good to get along. If I didn’t become president, you’d be right now in a war with North Korea, that’s a certainty”

Asked about his tweet about meeting Sunday at the DMZ with Kim Jong Un. Says he just put out “a feeler.” Not sure Kim is available. But wants to see the DMZ and thought it might be a chance for a brief meeting with Kim. Says North Korea has more US remains to return.

In offering to meet Kim Jong Un, spoke with evident envy about the role of the DMZ as a border wall between North & South Korea. “That’s what they call a border. Nobody goes through that border,” he said. He didn’t mention the 800,000 landmines in the DMZ.
