After Trump's latest missives about the possibility of the summit being held as scheduled, a spokesman for the Blue House called the move a positive development.

Shortly before Mr Trump's tweet, the South Korean presidency said it was thankful that the "summit embers are not put out and it is coming back to life".

Trump told reporters Saturday that: "We're doing very well in terms of the summit with North Korea", adding that "there are meetings going on as we speak".

Yesterday, President of the United States, Donald Trump posted on Twitter of his intentions to reinstate the summit planned with North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un.

The meeting between Moon and Kim took place in a grand building on the North Korean side of Panmunjom, a surreal and heavily fortified village that lies between the two countries and marks the spot where the armistice ending the Korean War in 1953 was signed.

Trump blocking his critics on Twitter violates First Amendment, judge rules
At that time, Judge Buchwald urged both parties to find a resolution outside of court. Twitter is much more than a social network for Donald Trump.

The press secretary however, declined to elaborate further and said details of the summit would be revealed Sunday by President Moon himself.

After years of tension over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program, Kim and Trump agreed this month to hold what would be the first meeting between a serving US president and a North Korean leader.

At the meeting, Kim was with his sister Kim Yo-jong and his top aide Kim Yong chol in charge of inter-Korean affairs.

Donald Trump says he welcomes the response of the North Koreans to his cancellation of a summit with leader Kim Jong-un.

Pyongyang on Friday said in a statement that it is still willing to "sit with the USA side" for talks "at any time".

Are you a Laurel or a Yanny? Explained!
But the White House killed the meme for good when it released a video of staffers dividing into Team Yanny and Team Laurel. So if you're hearing Laurel, you're likely picking up on the lower frequency.

Trump, in his letter to Kim, said the "tremendous anger and open hostility" recently shown by North Korea led him to conclude that it was not the appropriate time to hold talks with Kim.

"We'll see what happens - it (the summit) could even be the 12th [of June]". Their last meeting on April 27 was held on the South side.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters Trump did not want a meeting that was "just a political stunt".

"Based on the bilateral alliance with the United States, we will get ready to move for progress on the abduction, nuclear and missile issues", a source with the prime minister's office said. "You talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used", Trump wrote.

The highly anticipated summit between President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong-un in June will have been a golden opportunity to avert nuclear standoff and provide the much-needed peace and stability in a highly vulnerable region of the world.

European Union defies Trump with move to 'block' US Iran sanctions
