WASHINGTON : US President Donald Trump revealed his upcoming meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, announcing Thursday that they will meet in Singapore on June 12.
“We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!” Mr. Trump announced on Twitter.
In typical fashion, Trump first revealed the news on Twitter. “The highly anticipated meeting between Kim Jong Un and myself will take place in Singapore on June 12th,” he tweeted Thursday morning. “We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!”
The two leaders are expected to discuss North Korea’s nuclear weapons development and testing programme, which has deepened long-seated tensions between Washington and Pyongyang. Trump’s  announcement came just hours after three Americans who had been held prisoner in North Korea arrived at a U.S. military base outside Washington, having been released by Mr. Kim.
Trump said on their arrival that he believed Mr. Kim wanted to bring North Korea “into the real world” and had high hopes for their planned meeting, which would be the first between a serving U.S. President and a North Korean leader.
“I think we have a very good chance of doing something very meaningful,” Mr. Trump said. “My proudest achievement will be — this is part of it — when we denuclearise that entire peninsula.”
