In a statement today, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said, “President Donald J. Trump met with Kim Yong Chol for an hour and half, to discuss denuclearization and a second summit, which will take place near the end of February. The President looks forward to meeting with Chairman Kim at a place to be announced at a later date.”
It’s reported that Chol brought Trump a letter from Kim Jong Un. Prior to their meeting, Sanders said the two would “discuss relations between the two countries and continued progress on North Korea’s final, fully verified denuclearization.”
Trump’s meeting with Chol occurred after the North Korean envoy met with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. special envoy for North Korea, Stephen Biegun in downtown D.C.
