The preparation for talks between North Korea and the United States will start on Monday, according to President Trump’s tweet on Sunday. Last week the president United States had released a letter stating the talks have been called off. But less than 24 hours later her said that the talks may go on as scheduled. Sunday’s tweet is the second iteration that the talks are on schedule.
Trump had called North Korea’s response to his decision to cancel a summit with the nation’s leader Kim Jong-Un “warm and productive”. On Sunday he informed that the US team arrived in North Korea to make arrangements for much-talked-of summit with Kim Jong Un.
Our United States team has arrived in North Korea to make arrangements for the Summit between Kim Jong Un and myself. I truly believe North Korea has brilliant potential and will be a great economic and financial Nation one day. Kim Jong Un agrees with me on this. It will happen!

Earlier the Washington Post had reported that over the next two days, a slew of meetings will be conducted between the US and North Korea about Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons programme.
