President Donald Trump has said the time and place has been set for his landmark meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un – but kept the world guessing about when and where.
The White House did, however, announce the details of a separate meeting later this month between Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
That was announced as the US administration pushed back on a report that Trump is considering the withdrawal of US forces from the allied nation.
Trump and Moon will meet at the White House on May 22 to ‘continue their close co-ordination on developments regarding the Korean Peninsula’ following last week’s meeting between Moon and Kim.
They will also discuss the US president’s own upcoming summit with the North Korean leader, a statement said.
Earlier this week, Trump expressed a preference for holding the ‘big event’ with Kim in the demilitarised zone or DMZ between the two Koreas, where Moon and Kim met.
