BEIJING — South Korea’s Ambassador to the U.S. says he is hopeful that a second meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will take place.
Speaking at an event at Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday, Ambassador Cho Yoon-je said he believes the two leaders will meet because “the train is already on the move.”
Cho added that the exact timing of the meeting was unclear. “But I don’t think it (train) can be stopped or reversed, at least in the near future, at least if something happens, which is unexpected at this point.”
Cho added that Kim’s visit to China this week is “quite a good sign for that.”
Trump said last week that he will be setting up a meeting with Kim “in the not-too-distant future” to restart talks about the North’s nuclear programs after their summit in Singapore last summer.
