think it will be a process it's not i don't i never said it goes in one meeting i think it's going to be a process but the relationships of building in this are very positive the announcement followed two days of talks between north korea negotiator kim yong troll and the u.s. secretary of state in new york. and when he was ushered into the white house by the chief of staff he carried with him a letter from the north korean leader kim jong il president trump teased reporters about its content like the reality show host he once was going to meetings going to get this was a meeting where a letter was given to me by kim young interns and that letter was a very nice letter always you like to see what was in that letter and you know you liked all with it how much how much how much you give us back subsequently admitted he had not read the letter and i haven't seen the letter yet i purposely didn't know for eleven. i haven't opened it i didn't open it in front of the director i
said would you want me to open which he said you can read it later i may be in for a big surprise focused. but he wasn't after president trump had departed for camp david the white house confirmed he read the letter and a short statement it says there were no surprises mike hanna al-jazeera washington let's go live now to solve where he joins us from wasn't long ago that this was off what's turn things around why. yes semi it's been a remarkable transformation really it was as you mentioned just over a week ago that that letter was written by donald trump to kim jong un calling the summit off but we have to remember that in the meantime while it appeared that we may be heading back to square one relations between north and south korea continues to improve through that process and it was about a day after that letter was written by the u.s. president that we saw a surprise second summit between the two leaders on the korean peninsula president
mungy and of south korea and kim jong un we don't know a lot of the details about what was discussed in that second summit but it is clear that the south korean president has played a big role here in negotiating mediating between north korea and the united states and getting this situation back on track to the stage where it seems like we are heading towards that summit finally taking place in singapore on june the twelfth and this is something that president moon has always wanted he's always been in favor of of an improved relationship with north korea of engagement of peace on the korean peninsula it's something he campaigned on before he became president in may last year but after that he really didn't get a chance to implement any of the of his campaign promises when it come came to north korea because there was so much tension so much rhetoric coming from both north korea and the united states in this year obviously things have been
a lot different now clear is that how much common ground there is and some of the key issues. well the ultimate goal so we are always told is the denuclearization of the korean peninsula that is what the united states is sticking to that is what south korea is sticking to but from the reports that have emerged in the hours since that meeting in washington between the former north korean spy chief and the u.s. president donald trump are that in that letter from kim jong un to the u.s. president there were no concessions made about what they may discuss or what deal they may reach when they meet in singapore so it seems clear now that this meeting in singapore perhaps will not involve any major announced.
