Trump confirms historic summit with Kim Jong-un is back on for June 12

AFTER a week of backflipping and uncertainty, US President Donald Trump has confirmed that his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is back on.

The meeting is scheduled for June 12.

Speaking after an Oval Office meeting with top-ranking North Korean official Kim Yong-chol today, President Trump said it would be mistake not to go forward with the on-again, off-again nuclear summit in Singapore.

He told reporters that he predicts talks with North Korea will โ€œbe a processโ€ but will ultimately be โ€œsuccessfulโ€, indicating that the rogue regime wants to denuclearise.
