Trump says location, date of North Korea summit may be announced soon

Washington, May 1 US President Donald Trump today said that details on the location and date for his meeting with the North Korean leader Kim Jong-un would be announced in the next couple of days.

Trump's comments at a news conference with visiting Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari suggested the Peace House on the DMZ, where Kim met South Korean President Moon Jae In last week, was the likely setting for the first-ever meeting between sitting leaders of the United States and North Korea.

North Korea announced that it would suspend its nuclear and long-range missile tests ahead of the summit.

Trump said on Saturday the meeting with Kim could happen over the next three or four weeks.

The summit, which has come together rapidly after months of tense saber-rattling over the North's nuclear and missile programs, would be the first ever between a U.S. president and a leader of North Korea.


"The list has been narrowed as the president said and we expect to have an announcement on that soon", she told reporters. Trump wants to hold it by late May or early June.

On Monday, Trump suggested that he would like to see the meeting held in the demilitarized zone, but said that other sites - including Singapore - also are being considered.

The audience at a campaign rally Mr Trump headlined over the weekend in MI broke into chants of "Nobel!" when he began talking about North Korea.

"I want to get it done", he added.
