Donald Trump confirms Kim Jong-un-Mike Pompeo meeting

Washington/Pyongyang Apr 18 (IBNS): Putting rumours to rest, US President Donald Trump on Wednesday confirmed that a meeting between Central Intelligence Agency Director Mike Pompeo and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un took place in the latter's country last week.

However, he did not provide any further details of the meeting.

Trump said that the meeting went 'smoothly and a good relationship was formed'.

"Mike Pompeo met with Kim Jong Un in North Korea last week. Meeting went very smoothly and a good relationship was formed. Details of Summit are being worked out now. Denuclearization will be a great thing for World, but also for North Korea!" the US President's tweet read.

The secret meeting is said to be the highest level US-North Korea contact since 2000.

"We have had direct talks at... extremely high levels," Trump told reporters at Florida, where he is holding a meeting with Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Though nothing has been finalised yet, political commentators have said that the historic US-North Korea meeting between Trump and Kim may take place in June or a little before that.

The place of the meeting could be a denuclearised zone between North and South Korea, China (neutral venue in Asia), Europe (neutral continent) or a vessel in international waters.

Meanwhile, in an attempt to foster harmony between the two neighbouring states in the Korean Peninsula, South Korea's President Moon Jae-in and Kim Jong-un will be meeting for a historic summit next week.
