President Trump says his nuclear summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is back on.

The small delegations were to hold two two-hour negotiating sessions on plans for a June 12 summit in Singapore between Trump and Kim Jong Un to resolve their nations' nuclear stand-off.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said "real progress" had been made in NY talks with Kim's right-hand man, while in Pyongyang the Korean leader re-committed to "denuclearization".

The envoy, Gen Kim Yong-chol, hand-delivered a letter from the North Korean leader to President Trump.

Trump said Friday he will meet Kim for the historic summit as originally scheduled after extraordinary Oval Office talks with a top envoy from Pyongyang.

Praising the "outstanding political caliber and wise leadership" of the North Korean leader, Assad said he believed that Kim would achieve "the final victory and realize the reunification of Korea without fail". "But I think you're going to have a very positive result".

The visit comes ahead of a summit planned for June 12, which Trump canceled but now says may take place after all.


Earlier, in Washington, Trump had said he was "looking forward" to reading the letter.

Pompeo was in the room as Trump and Kim Yong Chol met.

He arrived for the meeting accompanied by the senior USA officials who have overseen an extraordinary diplomatic opening. Gallucci added that it would be good for the USA delegation to have agreed on "follow-on steps" for what will be implemented in order to reach a deal on denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. "Kim Jong-un", Assad said, the North's state-run KCNA news agency reported, using the abbreviated version of the country's official name.

North Korea's flurry of diplomatic activity following an increase in nuclear weapons and missile tests in 2017 suggests that Mr Kim is eager for sanctions relief to build his economy and for the global legitimacy a summit with Mr Trump would provide.

"I may be in for a surprise, folks", he said.

"How would you like to see what was in that letter?" Trump and Pompeo have both promised North Korea a bright and prosperous future should the communist regime agree to abandon nuclear weapons.

Trump echoed Pompeo's comments on Thursday when he said while on board Air Force One: "I'd like to see it done in one meeting, but often times that's not the way deals work".
