North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said he “believes in” US President Donald Trump, expressing his satisfaction with the progress in talks between officials from the two countries about a second summit to be held between them.

“Kim Jong-un said that we will believe in President Trump’s positive way of thinking, wait with patience and in good faith and, together with the US, advance step by step toward the goal to be reached by the two countries,” North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency [KCNA] said in a report on Thursday, without saying when Kim made the remarks.

It added that he also expressed great “satisfaction” at receiving a “great” letter from the US president and a briefing regarding the results of the talks held between a North Korean delegation — led by Kim’s right-hand man, Kim Yong-chol — and American officials — headed by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo — in Washington last week, without giving further details.

Reports at the time said that the two sides were expected to finalize the date and location of a second summit between President Trump and leader Kim.

They also said that Kim Yong-chol was likely to meet the American president as well during his two-day trip to the US capital.

The White House said last week that a second Kim-Trump summit would be held in late February but did not say where.

According to unconfirmed reports, Vietnam is the likely venue for the summit.
