Meeting with Kim to Take Place as Planned

Meeting with Kim to Take Place as Planned

North Korean official Kim Yong Chol arrived at the White House on Friday to deliver a personal letter from the rogue regime's leader Kim Jong Un to President Trump.

The video narration says that despite every effort, Kim is unable to change North Korea's dire economic state. It reportedly made no big concessions or threats but said the North Korean leader was still interested in meeting with Trump.

Then he said he hasn't actually read it.

He also said the issue of human rights was not discussed.

"Based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement, I feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long-planned meeting", Trump wrote in a letter to Kim Jong Un on May 24. "It's really a get-to-know-you situation".

Emerging from a historic and rare 90-minute-plus Oval Office meeting with a top North Korean official, Mr. Trump told reporters that the summit is back on, after he canceled it last week.

Pompeo spoke to reporters at a news conference in NY after meeting Thursday with former North Korean military intelligence chief Kim Yong Chol.

After the meeting, which lasted more than an hour, Trump walked Kim out of the White House.

"Our movement is committed to the abolition of nuclear weapons and we recognize that this historic summit is a once in a generation opportunity to work for peace and nuclear disarmament", Akira Kawasaki, an ICAN worldwide steering group member, said in a statement. CNN cited unnamed officials who said that they understood that the nature of the letter to be positive.

Mr Kim, a close aide to the North Korean leader, is the highest level figure from the secretive state to hold talks at the White House since a senior envoy visited former president Bill Clinton in 2000.

The letter itself is an old-fashioned gesture.

North Korea has carried out six nuclear tests and numerous tests of ballistic missiles, all the while maintaining a barrage of belligerent rhetoric against its enemies, particularly the US.
