Seoul: North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has said he is willing for another meeting with US President Donald Trump to reach an agreement on denuclearization if Washington has the right attitude, the state media reported on Saturday. “If the US proposes holding a third North Korea-US summit with a right attitude and a right method, we have a willingness to do it one more time,” Kim Jong-un said during a speech on Friday on the second day of a 14th Supreme People’s Assembly session. His comments were published by Pyongyang’s state news agency KCNA.

“I will not hesitate in signing an agreement only if it is written in a way that meets the interests of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and is fair, mutually acceptable and this will entirely depend upon with what attitude and calculus the US would come up with,” Kim Jong-un added. Trump and Kim met for the first time in Singapore 2018. However, a second summit in Hanoi in February broke down over denuclearization steps. The US leader said North Korean officials sought economic sanctions lifted in their entirety in exchange for disabling a major nuclear site, provoking him to walk away. (IANS)
