(Newser) – President Trump revealed Tuesday that the US and North Korea have already held "direct talks" at "extremely high levels." He also said, during an appearance with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, that five different locations are being considered for his upcoming sit-down with Kim Jong Un, tentatively set for early June, Politico reports. "We'll either have a very good meeting, or we won't have a good meeting, and maybe we won't even have a meeting at all, depending on what's going [on]," he said. "Depending on various meetings and conversations, we’ll be having meetings with Kim Jong Un very soon. Assuming things go well. It’s possible things won’t go well and we won’t have the meetings, and we’ll just continue to go along this very strong path that we have taken. But we will see what happens."
