THREATS FROM NORTH KOREA: Trump pushes Korean truce village for Kim summit

US President Donald Trump said Monday he was confident his landmark summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will go ahead, as he talked up the idea of holding it in the Demilitarized Zone between the two Koreas.

Trump revealed last week that two or three locations were under consideration for the historic meeting — which would be the first between a sitting US president and a leader of North Korea — but had yet to publicly name a potential site.

Addressing a joint press conference with his Nigerian counterpart Muhammadu Buhari, Trump confirmed that Singapore was under consideration as a location, but — following on from a morning tweet — said the DMZ should be given strong consideration.

“There’s something I like about it because you’re there — if things work out, there’s a great celebration to be had on the site, not in a third party country,” Trump said.

“We’re also looking at other countries including Singapore,” the US leader added. “Everybody wants us — it has the chance to be a big event.”

Other potential locations reportedly include Mongolia and Switzerland.
