President Donald Trump on Friday tweeted an offer to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the demilitarized zone separating North and South Korea.
“After some very important meetings, including my meeting with President Xi of China, I will be leaving Japan for South Korea (with President Moon). While there, if Chairman Kim of North Korea sees this, I would meet him at the Border/DMZ just to shake his hand and say Hello(?)!” Trump wrote Saturday morning local time.
Trump was scheduled to spend Saturday and Sunday in South Korea, meeting with its president Moon Jae-in.
The South China Morning Post previously reported that Trump was considering a trip to the heavily fortified border, but a summit with the North Korean leader was not publicly in the works. Trump planned to visit the DMZ during a 2017 trip to South Korea, but canceled at the last moment due to weather.
