DW – May 10, 2018

The leaders of the US and North Korea are set to meet on June 12 in Singapore, President Donald Trump said on Twitter on Thursday. The meeting comes amid a historic diplomatic thaw that saw North Korea pledge to work towards denuclearization.

“We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!” Trump added.

The summit will mark the first time a sitting US president meets with a North Korean leader.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has traveled to North Korea twice in recent months to meet Kim Jong Un in preparation for the meeting with Trump.
