  • 'Very good meetings': Donald Trump praises meeting with North Korean officials

He said the June 12th summit may just be the beginning of talks, and that working towards denuclearization may take more than one conversation or meeting.

Pompeo, the former Central Intelligence Agency chief who has traveled to North Korea and met with Kim Jong Un twice in the past two months, said he believed the country's leaders are "contemplating a path forward where they can make a strategic shift, one that their country has not been prepared to make before".

"We are doing very well with North Korea", Trump told reporters at Joint Base Andrews before departing on a trip to Texas.

"It's absolutely obvious that when a conversation starts about solving the nuclear problem and other problems of the Korean Peninsula, we proceed from the fact that the decision can't be complete while sanctions are still in place", he said. "I told them today, take your time, we can go fast or we can go slowly".

Trump sought to play down expectations of a quick breakthrough at the upcoming meeting in Singapore, saying that a resolution of the decades-long dispute over North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs could require multiple sessions. He doesn't plan to introduce new sanctions.

"I want it to be very meaningful", he said. The adversaries are eying the first summit between the USA and North Korea after six decades of hostility. You're talking years of hostility, problems and hatred between so many different nations.

Since that short-lived crisis, diplomats in both countries have conducted an intense flurry of negotiations, culminating on Thursday when Pompeo sat down in NY with Kim's number two, Kim Yong Chol. The meeting was expected to be much shorter.

South Korea Praises Trump's Summit with Kim Jong
Annual military drills between the United States and South Korea have been a major source of tension on the Korean Peninsula . The drills help keep USA forces at a state of readiness in one of the world's most tense flashpoints.

Frenetic meetings - Pompeo has scheduled a news conference on Thursday, at the end of his meetings with Kim.

Speaking to reporters on the White House lawn after the successful meeting with the travelling envoy, he said he believes Kim is ready to drop his nuclear arsenal.

The president even shunned, for the moment, using the term "maximum pressure campaign", a favorite phrase of his in describing the economic and potential military consequences to Pyongyang if it refuses to negotiate. How much? How much?

"No, I haven't seen the letter yet". "I purposely didn't open the letter". There's a very good chance that it won't be done in one meeting or two meetings or three meetings. "I may be in for a big surprise, folks". But a White House official has since confirmed that the President has read the contents of that giant envelope.

Previous attempts at nuclear diplomacy with the North by Presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush fell apart.

Trump has said he will walk away from the summit if it doesn't promise to be fruitful.

"This summit will be historic by its very nature". "The people of #NorthKorea can have a brighter future and the world can be more peaceful".
