Trump, Kim to meet one-on-one next week

(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) –President Donald Trump hopes to move beyond pleasantries next week in his second meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, officials said on Thursday, describing the follow-up talks as more intensive than an inaugural round last year in Singapore.

Even as he looks to convince Kim to abandon his nuclear program, however, Trump faces uncertainty about how willing the reclusive despot is to relinquish his stockpiles. A common definition of “denuclearization” doesn’t yet exist, the officials said. And Kim hasn’t committed to a timeline of any sort.
