The white house team sent to Singapore for possible summit
The white house sends out an advance team to Singapore to work on the logistics for a possible U.S.-North Korea summit.
The White house said on Saturday that one of the advance team in the direction of Singapore is, if a much-anticipated summit Korean leader Kim Jong-Un meeting between President Trump and the North goes on, the last sign that the meeting could be back on despite the cancellation of Trump at the start of this week.
“The White house prior to leaving advance team for Singapore, as planned, to prepare, should be held the summit,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters.
President Trump, the North Korean leader wrote on Thursday, namely, the 12. The June summit was nixed after comments from a North Korean official who had threatened nuclear war.
“Based on the enormous anger and open hostility in its most recent statement, I think it is inappropriate, at this time, the long-planned meeting,” wrote Trump in his letter to Kim. “So, please let this letter serve to show that the Singapore summit, for the welfare of the two parties, but to the detriment of the world, will not take place.”
He called the implode-the summit was a “sad moment in history.”
“You are talking about your nuclear capabilities, but our are so massive and strong that I wrote to God, pray that you never have to be used,” Trump Kim. “If you change your mind to do, with this most important summit, please do not hesitate to call me or to write. The world, in North Korea and, in particular, lost a great opportunity for lasting peace and great prosperity and wealth.”
But on Friday evening, Trump tweeted that the “very productive talks” over the re-introduction of the summit were underway, and he said that 12. June could be the date for such a meeting.
We have very productive talks with North Korea on the re-introduction of the summit, which, if it happens, probably still in Singapore on the same date, June 12., and, if necessary, be extended beyond that date.
