US President Donald Trump, after meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on the inter-Korean border yesterday, said he was looking forward to seeing him again soon.
“It was great to be with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un this weekend,” Trump said through his official Twitter account, “We had a great meeting and Kim looked good and in good health.” “I look forward to seeing him again soon.”
According to South Korean news agency Yonhap, Trump’s comment on Kim’s health appeared to be in response to Kim’s health crisis raised by a US media reporter who was on the Panmunjom meeting site.

Trump’s remarks, according to Yonhap, appear to have underscored the significance of the Panmunjom meeting, which led to a breakthrough in the stalled nuclear negotiations since the collapse of the Hanoi summit and renewed its determination to pursue a bottom-up approach. the work.
“We agreed to appoint representatives of the two sides for comprehensive negotiations and agreements, and we will start the working talks after the formation of the working group within two to three weeks under Pompeo’s leadership,” Trump said after the Panmunjom meeting. “There is no need to rush, we will look to the right negotiations rather than speed,” he said.
