President Donald Trump says he’s ready to meet again with Kim Jong Un to discuss North Korea’s nuclear weapons.
In a Cabinet meeting Wednesday, Trump said he’d just received a letter from the North Korean leader.
On Tuesday, Trump tweeted that Kim has pledged not to make or test nuclear weapons, or give them to others.
“Kim Jong Un says North Korea will not make or test nuclear weapons, or give them to others – & he is ready to meet President Trump anytime.” PBS News Hour. I also look forward to meeting with Chairman Kim who realizes so well that North Korea possesses great economic potential!

During his three summits with the leader of South Korea and a meeting with Trump in June, Kim has signed vague statements pledging a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula, but he’s not described how and when it would occur.
Follow-up nuclear talks between Washington and Pyongyang have stalled.
Still, Trump says his engagement with North Korea helped stave off what he says “could have been World War III.”
