Donald Trump to meet Kim Jong Un on June 12

Kim Yong Chol touched down in New York City on Wednesday afternoon

"In light of how North Korea has behaved in the past, I believe that it is important not to reward North Korea exclusively for agreeing to have a dialogue", he said.

The United States could withdraw its troops in South Korea if upcoming talks between the USA and North Korea go well, but it will not be "on the table nor should it be" at the Singapore summit on June 12. It's going to be a process, but the relationships are building... According to Reuters, the Shangri-La Suite in the hotel's Valley Wing had a price tag of 10,000 Singapore dollars, or about $7,471, for the night of June 12.

Singapore's defense minister Ng Eng Hen on Saturday told reporters the small yet rich city-state in Southeast Asia is open to pitching in to cover some expenses for the summit. The announcement came after Trump hosted a senior North Korean envoy at the White House and he delivered a personal letter from Kim that was inside a white envelope almost as large as a folded newspaper.

The Trump told them "it was a very interesting letter". As for the size of Kim Jong Un's letter? He said he thinks that North Korea is willing to denuclearize, and he said he and Kim also discussed the possibility of formally ending the Korean War.

Kim Yong Chol spent more than an hour in the Oval Office where he was spotted shaking hands with the president.

Trump and Pompeo walked Kim Yong Chol to his vehicle. This was the first time that a senior North Korean official had visited the White House since a senior military official from that country visited former-President Bill Clinton in 2000. Gen. Kim is the highest-ranking North Korean official to visit the U.S.in 18 years.

Kim Yong Chol's trip to Washington was clearly a response to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's travelling to Pyongyang, North Korea's capital, twice in recent weeks for pre-summit negotiations with Kim.

The letter comes as the two countries work to revive a Trump-Kim summit on June 12 in Singapore. This was a meeting where a letter was given to me by Kim Jong-un.

That was followed up by a secret visit by Pompeo to North Korea before the former Central Intelligence Agency director had even been confirmed in his new job as secretary of state.

Pompeo said on Thursday that, after what have now been two meetings with Kim Jong Un and three with Kim Yong Chol, he believes the North is at least ready to consider addressing U.S. demands for denuclearization. "I think we're going to have a positive result in the end".
