Mr. Trump said he thinks it will be a “terrific relationship,” and Kim, through a translator, said North Korea had to overcome a number of “obstacles” to get to this moment.
Mr. Trump and Kim participated in a one-on-one meeting, with translators only, followed by an expanded meeting including their top advisers. They will also have a working lunch. According to the White House, the discussions between the U.S. and North Korea are “ongoing and have moved more quickly than expected.”
