WASHINGTON - US and North Korean officials met Sunday at a border truce village as preparations resumed for a high-stakes, high-drama summit that President Donald Trump suggests could help the North realise its "brilliant potential.
"I truly believe North Korea has brilliant potential and will be a great economic and financial Nation one day," Trump said on Twitter.
"Kim Jong Un agrees with me on this. It will happen!," the president said, confirming that a US team "has arrived in North Korea to make arrangements for the summit" between himself and North Korean leader Kim.
His upbeat language contrasted sharply to that of only three days earlier, when Trump cancelled the planned summit, citing "open hostility" from the North. An extraordinary flurry of diplomacy since then - much of it led by South Korea - appears to have put the meeting back on track.
