The president of the United States, Donald Trump, said on Friday that “two or three” venues are being studied for the expected meeting with the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, but he assured that he will not be “manipulated” in that meeting.
“We are in contact with North Korea and South Korea. We are organizing a meeting for a very short time. We have reduced to two venues now, two or three venues. I hope we are very successful, “said the US president.
“The United States has been manipulated, because there was a different type of leader. We will not be manipulated, and I hope we can reach an agreement, “Trump said in the White House Oval Room, where on Friday he received the Chancellor of Germany, Angela Merkel.
According to the US president, the expectation for the meeting with Kim is that “we will reach a solution. And if not, we will leave the room. With the greatest respect, we will leave the room. ”
Trump himself insists that an understanding with Kim should include the “elimination” of all nuclear weapons held by the North Korean government.
