In addition, Trump noted in his tweet that North Korean leader's meeting with Chinese president went well and Kim now looks forward to "meeting with me." Earlier, North and South Korean media outlets confirmed the meeting between Kim Jong Un and Xi Jinping after South Korean intelligence reported that Kim had visited Beijing with his wife.
For years and through many administrations, everyone said that peace and the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula was not even a small possibility. Now there is a good chance that Kim Jong Un will do what is right for his people and for humanity. Look forward to our meeting!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 28, 2018

Trump's statement comes after the North Korean leader confirmed willingness to maintain a dialogue with Washington and hold a meeting with the US president.
Earlier in March, the Dong-A Ilbo newspaper reported that Kim spoke about the intention to normalize relations with Washington during a meeting with a South Korean delegation in Pyongyang, noting that his final goal was to sign a peace agreement with the US and establish diplomatic ties, possibly including the opening of a US embassy in Pyongyang.
