(Newser) – President Trump will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next month, Reuters reports. The White House tweeted news of the planned “second summit” Friday after Trump reportedly met with North Korean envoy Kim Yong Chol for an hour and a half and talked about denuclearization and another Trump-Kim meeting. The tweet said the location of the meet-up is TBD, but Vietnam and Thailand may be contenders, according to reports. The fact that the envoy ventured to Washington DC (North Korean officials typically have to stay near the UN in New York) and Trump’s willingness to meet with him are signs that the president is “eager to jump-start stalled nuclear negotiations with Pyongyang,” Politico says. Trump and Kim first met face-to-face last June in Singapore. (Read more North Korea stories.)
