Washington DC [United States], May 04 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump on Friday announced that date and venue for historic face-to-face meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will be announced "very soon".

"We now have a date. And we have a location. We'll be announcing it very soon," the Hill reported Trump as saying from the White House lawn.

Trump predicted "very good things" from the upcoming meeting.

The Trump-Kim meet will be the first of its kind as it is the first meet between a US president and a North Korean leader since the end of the Korean War.

The two sides are likely to discuss the possible denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.

According to a report, Trump on Friday said the US remains in "constant contact with North Korea" ahead of a planned summit with despotic Korean leader and stated that the presence of US troops in the Korean Peninsula is not on the table.

Coming down to time and venue, earlier in the month, Trump hinted, in a tweet, that the bilateral summit may be conducted at the Peace House situated at the border village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) of the Korean peninsula.

Earlier on April 29, Trump said a meeting between the US and North Korea is likely possible in "three or four weeks". (ANI)
