US President Donald Trump stands with Kim Yong Chol, former North Korean military intelligence chief and one of leader Kim Jong Un's closest aides, on the South Lawn of the White House on June 1, 2018 in Washington, DC.
Since coming to power in 2011, Kim has not met another head of state in North Korea.
Trump also said the issue of formally ending the Korean War will be on the table.
President Trump has offered to help rebuild the North's economy if it scraps its nuclear weapons and has mentioned it multiple times in his correspondence with North Korea. "Kim Jong Un", Assad said, the North's state-run KCNA news agency reported, using the abbreviated version of the country's official name.
With preparations for President Donald Trump's meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore well underway, one of the biggest logistical hurdles may come down to a simple question: who is paying for Kim's hotel?
The summit is set to be held on June 12 in Singapore. Pompeo had travelled to Washington to meet with General Chol and have discussions on the preparations of the nuclear summit that has been scheduled for June 12. "We can go fast; we can go slowly".
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said "real progress" has been made in the last few days toward setting the conditions needed for Trump and Kim Jong Un to have a successful summit in Singapore. The President's hand size is something he has previously defended.
Trump tweeted Tuesday that is cancellation letter got a "solid response".
According to South Korea's foreign ministry, North Korea established diplomatic relations with Syria in 1966, opening an embassy in Damascus.
Yet he also said hard work remains including hurdles that may appear to be insurmountable as negotiations progress on the USA demand for North Korea's complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation. It was a very interesting letter and at some point I may be, it may be appropriate and maybe I'll be able to give it to you.
