US President Donald Trump on Wednesday ruled out the Demilitarized Zone that divides the Korean peninsula as a venue for his upcoming summit with Kim Jong-un.
Trump, who had previously named the DMZ and Singapore as possible sites for the landmark meeting, told reporters at the White House the time and place would be announced “within three days.”
Asked if the meeting would be held in the DMZ, as Trump had suggested last week, he said it would not be.
Trump has said that the date and venue for the summit have now been set, but cautioned that the arrangements were still being worked out.
Everything can be scuttled,” he said, when asked if the summit plans could yet be derailed.
He said a lot of good things can happen, a lot of bad things can happen
I believe that both sides will negotiate a deal. I think it’s going to be a very successful deal. I think we have a shot at making it successful. But lots of things could happen.
