He said Moscow hoped all sides would take a measured approach to possible forthcoming talks on a nuclear settlement. They talked over a steak dinner Wednesday and chocolate croissants Thursday morning.

"I think we're over that, totally over that, and now we're going to deal and we're going to really start a process", Trump told reporters Friday afternoon of the escalating rhetoric that led to the cancellation.

As a result, American officials planning the summit are trying to work around sanctions that prohibit the US from picking up the bill, or may ask Singapore to pay for Kim's hospitality at the Fullerton, a neoclassical hotel along the Singapore River, two people with knowledge of the matter told The Washington Post on Friday. In sentences that were printed on White House stationery, Trump, in an uncharacteristically warm and congenial tone, said he was canceling the summit because of North Korea's harsh comments about US officials.

As preparations are underway for a US-North Korea summit, US officials are trying to solve the logistical issue of who will pay for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's housing, according to a new report. "Can you believe we're talking about the ending of the Korean War?" "The relationships are building and that's a very positive".

At the dialogue on Saturday, he also expressed his gratitude to Singapore for hosting the summit at short notice, saying the island-state had "taken it all in stride".

"Since the president's May 24 letter to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the North Koreans have been engaging", Sanders said.

"That letter was a very nice letter", Trump said during the White House news conference. He becomes only the second North Korean official to meet with a sitting U.S. president, reports the New York Times.

Kim Yong Chol spent more than an hour in the Oval Office where he was spotted shaking hands with the president. He was expected to deliver a letter from Kim Jong Un (kim jawng oon), the North Korean dictator, to Trump. Kim's top aide (and former intelligence chief) Kim Yong Chol presented Trump with a big white envelope and the exchange was captured on camera. Gen. Kim is the highest-ranking North Korean official to visit the 18 years.

Kim Yong-chol, vice-chairman of North Korea's ruling party executive and a veteran regime insider met with the U.S. President at the White House on Friday to deliver the letter. It will be a beginning, ' President Trump told reporters on the South Lawn after the group's departure. As far as Trump is concerned, the June 12 summit is happening.
