(CBS NEWS) – North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in met for the second time in a month on Saturday to discuss carrying out the peace commitments they reached in their first summit and Kim’s potential meeting with President Donald Trump, Moon’s office said.
South Korean presidential spokesman Yoon Young-chan said Moon will reveal the outcome of his surprise meeting with Kim on Sunday.
The meeting at a border truce village came hours after South Korea expressed relief over revived talks for a summit between Mr. Trump and Kim following a whirlwind 24 hours that saw Mr. Trump cancel the highly anticipated meeting before saying it’s potentially back on.
“We see it as fortunate that the embers of dialogue between North Korea and the United States weren’t fully extinguished and are coming alive again,” Seoul’s presidential spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said in a statement. “We are carefully watching the developments.”
On Saturday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said: “The White House pre-advance team for Singapore will leave as scheduled in order to prepare should the summit take place.”
Mr. Trump had said on Friday that the summit with North Korea “could even be the 12th,” after canceling the summit the day before.
“We’ll see what happens,” Mr. Trump said. “It could even be the 12th. We’re talking to them now. They very much want to do it. We’d like to do it. We’re gonna see what happens.”
He also said in a Friday tweet: “We are having very productive talks with North Korea about reinstating the Summit which, if it does happen, will likely remain in Singapore on the same date, June 12th., and, if necessary, will be extended beyond that date.”
