Trump-Kim meeting is back on, US President says

The on-again, off-again and highly anticipated meeting between Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un is back on, the US President has confirmed.

"I think it's probably going to be a very successful, ultimately a successful process," Mr Trump told reporters on the White House lawn on Saturday morning (NZ time).

The meeting's scheduled date and location, June 12 in Singapore, remains unchanged.

When the meeting was first arranged, there was speculation Mr Trump could be in line for the Nobel Peace Prize. But only a few weeks later Mr Trump cancelled the summit, citing "tremendous anger and open hostility" from the North Koreans.

The announcement comes two days after Mr Trump met another Kim - fellow reality TV star Kim Kardashian - at the White House.
