Pompeo had travelled to Washington to meet with General Chol and have discussions on the preparations of the nuclear summit that has been scheduled for June 12.

Trump called Friday's meeting "a great start" and declared, "We're going to deal". "And I think it'll be a process".

"I didn't like it, but it could be very positive, too", Trump told reporters.

Trump indicated he's continuing to use a carrot-and-stick approach to diplomacy.

"We will push forward to test the proposition that we can achieve that outcome", he said.

"They want to develop as a country", Trump said of the topics discussed with Kim Yong Chol.

The United States president is only slightly more popular than his North Korean counterpart. The talk included topics about sanctions, ending the Korean War and the pace of denuclearization. You're talking about years of hostility; years of problems; years of, really, hatred between so many different nations.

Details of the investment and export controls will be announced by June 30 and the final tariff list will be published by June 15. For instance, a practice where the foreign firm can access to the Chinese market by establishing ownership with local partners.

The White House indicated on Tuesday it was back in talks about reviving the get-together, detailing a host of steps to prepare for such an event.

He traveled from NY to Washington, D.C.in a black sport utility vehicle and arrived at the White House a little past 1 p.m. Friday.

His comments will stoke fears that the tempestuous relationship between Mr Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un could yet spiral into World War 3. "Oh, would you like to see what was in that letter?"

But he later revealed he hadn't opened it.

"I haven't seen the letter yet. I said 'What's the point goal of that?' but it could be a positive meeting". "I haven't opened it", he said.

He added: "I may be in for a big surprise, folks".

Trump tweeted Tuesday that is cancellation letter got a "solid response".

Tensions between the U.S. and North Korea flared after US Vice President Mike Pence compared the North Korea situation to Libya, provoking a furious reply from the Kim regime. In one account, a former chef detailed how Kim "gorged on steak, cheese and two bottles of Cristal champagne in one sitting".

"This summit will be historic by its very nature".
