Trump to visit S Korea for talks on North’s nukes: White House

President Donald Trump will visit South Korea in June to meet with his counterpart Moon Jae-in over their efforts to persuade North Korea to scrap its nuclear weapons arsenal, the White House said Wednesday.

It will be the second meeting between the pair since the collapse of a summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Hanoi in February after they failed to reach a deal on denuclearisation.

“President Trump and President Moon will continue their close coordination on efforts to achieve the final, fully verified denuclearization of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea,” the White House said in a statement, using North Korea’s official name.

The “denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula” was the term used in the joint statement signed by Kim and Trump after their first summit in Singapore.
