(CBS NEWS) – President Trump tweeted that his “highly-anticipated” meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un will take place in Singapore on June 12. “We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!” he tweeted.
The president’s news comes hours after he welcomed home three detained Americans at Joint Base Andrews, just outside Washington, D.C., less than 24 hours after they were released by North Korea. The three men, Kim Dong Chul, Kim Hak Song and Tony Kim, were released during a visit on Tuesday by U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and were in the air less than one hour after being released in North Korea’s capital city, Pyongyang.
CBS News had previously reported Singapore and Mongolia were the top two sites under consideration.
Kim’s summit with Mr. Trump comes after similar diplomatic meetings with leaders like South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
During his meeting with President Moon late last month, Kim became the first member of his family to cross the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) since the Korean War armistice in 1953.
