Will they or won’t they: US-North Korea summit back on

US President Donald Trump has reversed his earlier decision to cancel his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, saying the meeting is back on again.

This announcement comes just eight days after Mr Trump cancelled the summit due to Pyongyang’s “open hostility”.

The announcement comes following a meeting between Mr Trump and Kim Yong-Chol, the highest ranking North Korean official to visit the White House in 18 years.

Kim Yong-Chol delivered a letter from Kim Jong-Un to Mr Trump, which Mr Trump described as a “very nice letter, a very interesting letter”.

“I think it’s probably going to be a very successful, ultimately a successful process,” Mr Trump said of the summit.

“I look forward to the day when I can take the sanctions off of North Korea.”

Mr Trump also said that Kim Jong-Un was very committed to denuclearisation, after the issue flared up during the cancellation of the summit.
