Nuke talks between US and N. Korea ‘could happen soon’ says Trump

By Nariyoung Kim

Nuclear negotiations between the United Stated and North Korea will likely return within two to three weeks stated South Korea’s spy agency.

President Donald Trump has given few details regarding the meeting that was meant to address the North Korea’s development of the nuclear-armed missiles targeting the U.S. mainland.

“We’ll see. Right now, people would like to see that happen. I want to know what’s going to be coming out of it. We can know a lot before the summit takes place,” Trump said during the sidelines of annual General Assembly meetings at the United Nations in New York.

The US president stated that another meeting with the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un “could happen soon.” This prompted the National Intelligence Service (NIS) to brief several lawmakers about the possibility of the stalled nuclear diplomacy.

Kim Min-ki, one of the lawmakers in the private NIS briefing, quotes the spy service stating that there is “a high possibility for working-level talks (between the U.S. and North Korea) to restart within two to three weeks.”

Kim Min-ki also stated that the NIS also informed the lawmakers that another Trump-Kim summit could occur this year if the two countries report progress from those working-level nuclear negotiations.

Confirmation from the NIS were not immediately answered due to them not typically commenting on the contents of the private briefing it provides the lawmakers with.
