Trump And Kim Jong Un Likely To Meet Next Month In Singapore

3 American prisoners held in North Korea freed and on way back to U.S

Mr. Trump announced on Twitter.

Trump's announcement came hours after the arrival on USA soil of three Americans previously held prisoner by North Korea. The announcement follows the medical plane carrying Kim Dong Chul, Tony Kim and Kim Hak Song that arrived at Joint Base Andrews, Maryland shortly before 3 a.m. CDT.

An "historic" meeting between South Korean president and Kim, who shook hands at the military border that divides the naions, paved the way for direct talks with U.S. officials.

Trump's disposition toward Kim has shifted drastically in recent months, especially as North and South Korea have rekindled relations.

MARTIN: You've negotiated with the North Koreans before.

The men were all taken captive in the last three years, and spent months in brutal North Korean prison camps. It has close diplomatic and defense ties with the U.S. and yet is also familiar ground for North Korea, with which it established diplomatic relations in 1975.

"I will be there to greet them", Trump tweeted.

The summit, which has been in the works since Trump accepted Kim's invitation to meet in March, will be the first ever meeting between a sitting USA president and North Korean leader.

"I think we have a very good chance of doing something very meaningful", Mr Trump said.

"We have no illusions about that", he said, but added that "North Korea has taken steps that indicate this may be an opportunity for a breakthrough" on the Korean peninsula.

They are expected to discuss North Korea's nuclear weapons development and testing programme, which has deepened long-seated tensions between Washington and Pyongyang.

But on Wednesday, Mr Trump told reporters that the summit would not be held in the DMZ.

But despite the optimism of that moment, all efforts to limit North Korea's nuclear program have, to date, failed. The White House said they "affirmed" the shared goal of North Korea abandoning its nuclear weapons program. Pyongyang has been exceptionally cautious about its public framing of Kim's recent diplomatic moves, which are a major shift from the more aggressive focus on missile launches and nuclear development that heated tensions to a boil past year.

"It will not be there", he said before a Cabinet meeting at the White House, according to various news outlets.

"We are really excited that he's coming back, safely", dean of Mission University, Seonmook Shin, told CBS2 Wednesday. "We know who we're dealing with here". "We got Otto home the a year ago, but it wasn't soon enough".

The Americans should never have been detained in the first place, Mr Schumer said on the Senate floor.

He later added: "I worry that this president, in his eagerness to strike a deal, and get the acclaim and a photo op, will strike a quick one and a bad one, not a strong one, not a lasting one".

President Donald Trump shakes hands with detainee Kim Hak-sung as detainee Kim Dong Chul looks on.

But experts have raised skepticism that he's willing to completely abandon nuclear weapons after hard-won gains in developing intercontinental missiles and other capabilities. And if we can bring USA troops home, that would be great. What does it mean in terms of the upcoming summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un?
