Singapore Summit: US, DPRK Officials Hold Preparatory Meeting
Local Editor

Both American and North Korean officials are holding a preparatory meeting in Singapore for the upcoming summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

While the US delegation is led by White House Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations Joe Hagin, Kim Chang Son, the North Korean leader's chief of staff, is heading Pyongyang's delegation.

"I understand that the two sides will meet in Singapore on May 29 and hold consultations over such practical issues as the concrete summit date, venue, protocol and security," a diplomatic source told Yonhap news agency.

On May 24, Trump abruptly cancelled the US-North Korea summit, scheduled to take place on June 12 in Singapore, citing hostile comments by Pyongyang and stressing that he was looking forward to meeting with the North Korean leader "someday."

Yet, the following day, Trump indicated he might still meet with Kim as scheduled or postpone the summit.

Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal reported recently that Washington was ready to impose a stricter sanctions on Pyongyang, but decided to hold off the restrictions following Trump's decision to revive his meeting with Kim.
