Trump-Kim summit appears to be on again

President Donald Trump tweeted early Saturday that “very productive talks” have been held with North Korea on reinstating the summit with leader Kim Jong-un. He said the meeting could still take place on 12 June in Singapore as first scheduled “and if necessary will be extended beyond that date.” On Thursday, he abruptly cancelled the summit, blaming the North’s “open hostility.” But Pyongyang then appeared conciliatory, saying it was willing to talk “at any time in any form.” Shortly before Trump’s tweet, the South Korean presidency said it was thankful that the “summit embers are not put out and it is coming back to life”.
