Since taking power in 2011, Kim has not publicly met with another head of state in North Korea. Trump said he did not talk about human rights issues with the North Korean envoy, suggesting the issue of the Japanese citizens kidnapped in the 1970s and 1980s was not brought up.

The Post is also reporting that the US is expected to request a waiver of sanctions from the United Nations and US Treasury Department for expenses associated with North Korea's travel.

Mr Trump said after an Oval Office meeting with North Korea's Kim Yong-chol that he would be making a mistake not to go forward with the on-again, off-again nuclear summit in Singapore.

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.

Ever since Donald Trump boasted about the historic summit with the North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, excitement about the meet garnered attention from all over the world. "Hopefully we will have a meeting on the (June) 12th", he said.

"I am going to visit the DPRK and meet HE Kim Jong Un", the Syrian leader is reported to have said. "I purposely didn't open the letter", said Trump minutes after claiming the letter was "very nice" and "very interesting".

North Korea summit: Donald Trump says Kim aide in USA for talks
South Korea's presidential office said Moon will personally announce the outcome of Saturday's summit with Kim on Sunday. Since then, Trump has said North Korea has been responsive to the point where the meeting could be re-scheduled.

The flurry of talks come as the two sides are trying to salvage the summit, which was on the verge of collapse last Thursday when Trump walked away, citing "open hostility" from the North. -North Korea summit, which President Donald Trump reinstated the previous day.

Others wondered, will Trump reciprocate with an equally large letter?

"Between now and if we're going to have a summit, they're going to have to make clear what they're willing to do".

"But the tough one is really drilling down into what they mean by denuclearisation".

And he acknowledges that if diplomacy with North Korea works, then troop levels and similar issues can come up, but only in discussions between the USA and South Korea.
