US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un will be meeting in Singapore on June 12 in what would be a historic moment for world peace.

In a tweet sent out by President Trump on May 10 (Thursday), the president confirmed the meeting and added that they would both “try to make it a very special moment for World Peace.”

 

The leaders are expected to discuss North Korea’s nuclear weapons development and testing program which has been the cause of world-wide tensions for some time now.

In response to Trump’s tweet, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed that they would be hosting the event. They said in a statement:

Singapore is pleased to host the meeting between President of the United States Donald J Trump and Democratic People’s Republic of Korea State Affairs Commission Chairman Kim Jong Un on 12 June 2018.

The meeting is particularly notable because it would be the first between a serving US president and a North Korean leader.

Speaking of the meeting, Trump said: “I think we have a very good chance of doing something very meaningful. My proudest achievement will be – this is part of it – when we denuclearize that entire peninsula.”
