US-North Korea Summit is Set for June 12

By Nick Baum

FRIDAY – 5/11/18

After US President Donald Trump met with three freed American prisoners in North Korea, a time and place for the widely discussed summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has finally been agreed on, it will be on June 12 in Singapore, just south of Malaysia.

The date of June 12 is seen as a relatively soon date, yet giving both leaders time before hand to prepare. In February, Trump originally suggested for the summit to be by May, but settled for June with North Korea. As for the location of the meeting, intelligence officials in the US all agreed that Singapore is a neutral ground that can welcome in both sides, as opposed to other suggested locations like on a US battleship.

It is still unknown what other leaders will be attending the summit, or other personnel in the administration, but it is likely that CIA Director Mike Pompeo will join as he has already visited North Korea twice, both on terms to set up a time for the summit as well as escalating peace talks.
