The world is looking forward to the meeting scheduled to take place between the US President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un of North Korea. After the date was fixed and both sides started preparing for it, President Trump cancelled it citing the reason as North Korea’s “hostility”. Barely few hours after this cancellation, Trump again expressed his willingness to go ahead with this meet saying that things are moving nicely.
After this off-again, on-again drama, now it looks like the meeting will happen as scheduled on June 12th. President Trump has asked his advisors to prepare for this important meeting brushing aside their concerns. The top advisors were of the opinion that it is too short a time to prepare for such an important meet.
Both sides are preparing for it with the US officials already in North Korea to discuss things. The former ambassador to South Korea, Sung Kim is leading this American team. They held talks with Choe Son-hui, the North Korean Vice-Foreign Minister preparing the groundwork for the forthcoming meet.
North Korea has also sent their former spy chief and senior official Kim Yong-Chol to the US. He is one of the most influential persons in the country outside the Kim dynasty and is often called the right-hand man of Kim. He has been involved in talks between North and South Korea. He headed for the US after taking a brief stop in Beijing, which suggests the involvement of China too in the historic summit if it happens.
This will be the first-ever summit between a North Korean leader and a sitting US President. Both the sides are working hard to make this meet happen.
