US President Donald Trump and his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in confirmed at a joint press conference in Seoul on Sunday that the former will meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) later the same day.
«For the first time in history, the leaders of North Korea and United States will be standing face-to-face and having handshakes for peace,» Moon said... Еще. «President Trump is the maker of peace on the Korean Peninsula.»
He went on to say that he hoped the meeting would be «a milestone in the history of human kind.»
Trump said he believed there was mutual understanding between himself and Kim, whom he last met in Hanoi in February.
However, talks broke down at the summit with subsequent negotiations over nuclear testing and sanctions having cooled.
Despite Trump saying that the meeting is 'going to be very short, virtually a handshake', he is set to become the first ever sitting US president to enter the DMZ.
