US plans second Trump-Kim meeting

(VOVWORLD) - President Donald Trump has received a request from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for a follow-up to their historic June summit, and planning is in motion to make it happen, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday.

Trump told reporters last week that he was expecting a letter from Kim. Sanders said Trump has received the letter, which she described as "very warm, very positive." Sanders added President Trump offered fresh praise for Kim following a North Korean military parade that, unlike past parades, downplayed the missiles and nuclear weapons that brought North Korea to the brink of military conflict with the United States just a year ago.

The same day, Russian President Vladimir Putin urged the two Koreas to continue their dialogue, adding that Korean issues should be resolved through diplomatic and political means.
