US President Trump earlier canceled the summit intended to denuclearize North Korea but has now decided to meet Kim Jong Un in Singapore as originally planned.
US officials remain skeptical about North Korea's commitment to rid itself of nuclear weapons. US experts have bolstered those doubts with new findings about 13 undeclared nuclear bases throughout the country.
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says progress on the North Korean nuclear program has been made during his trip to east Asia. There had been little movement since a historic June meeting between Trump and Kim Jong Un.
North Korea agreed to abolish key missile facilities and close its main nuclear site. Kim Jong Un promised to visit Seoul soon – it would be a North Korean leader's first trip to the South's capital since 1945.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has sent US President Donald Trump a letter suggesting they schedule another meeting. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters it was a warm letter.
