In it, Kim describes his landmark June 12 summit with Trump in Singapore as the "start of a meaningful journey" and expresses confidence that the "sincere efforts" of both sides "will surely come to fruition".

The talks Sunday are expected to involve officials from the Pentagon and the U.N. Command, which commanded USA -led allied forces during the war and is involved in maintaining the armistice that ended the fighting in 1953.

The source said that Kim did not see any need to hold dialogue with Japan before his summit with South Korean President Moon Jae-in in April, instead favoring relations with the United States, China and Russian Federation.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the talks would be held in the truce village of Panmunjom after his fraught visit to North Korea last week, although he added the caveat that "it could move by one day or two".

"This step will build trust & confidence btw US & DPRK", he tweeted on Monday, using the acronym for North Korea's official name.

North Korean negotiators failed to show up for scheduled talks with the U.S.at Panmunjeom, Thursday, on repatriating the remains of USA soldiers killed in the 1950-53 Korean War, indicating a possible rift between the two countries in ongoing denuclearization talks.

The US president called it a "very nice note from Chairman Kim" and said "great progress is being made". Kim is reportedly eyeing Switzerland as a potential venue for a second meeting, with North Korean diplomats sent to Bern, Davos, and Geneva last week to scope out hotels and conference centers, Kyodo reported.

The article contrasts with the media narrative following the release of North Korea's statement that the negotiations took a turn for the worse during the sit-down.

One observer pointed out that Trump would have likely criticized his response to North Korea had it been the reaction of another president.

Earlier Thursday, a diplomatic source here said the USA and North Korea were still in talks to set a date for working-level dialogue over the repatriation of remains of American troops.

North Korea accused the United States on Saturday of making "gangster-like" demands in the talks in North Korea, contradicting Pompeo who said the old enemies had made progress.

But following the meeting, North Korea released a statement calling the meeting "regrettable" and accusing the United States of using "gangster-like" tactics to push it towards nuclear disarmament. But it didn't commence at the scheduled time as North Korean officials didn't show up. "I have it for him", Trump said.
