iStock/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — South Korean President Moon Jae In says he delivered President Trump’s firm willingness to end hostile relations with North Korea and to offer economic assistance to the country if leader Kim Jong Un implements complete denuclearization.

Kim reached out to Moon on Friday afternoon, just after Trump announced a personal letter to Kim cancelling a planned summit next month, to say that he “wanted to meet without formalities.”

The two met secretly at the North’s side of the border at the truce village of Panmunjom on Saturday afternoon, then later made the meeting public.

Trump, speaking after welcoming an American who had just returned to the U.S. after being freed from jail in Venezuela, said that meetings are ongoing regarding a possible summit with North Korea and that they have “gone very very well.” He also said that a date of June 12 in Singapore is still being considered for the meeting.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
