US President Donald Trump said on Friday that a nuclear summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un could still take place as scheduled on June 12, just one day after he cancelled it.
"We'll see what happens. It could even be the 12th," Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House before leaving for the US Naval Academy to deliver a commencement address.
"They very much want to do it. We'd like to do it. We're going to see what happens," he was quoted as saying by the Hill magazine.
North Korea issued a conciliatory statement on Thursday night in response to Trump's decision to scrap his meeting with Kim.
"We reiterate to the US that there is a willingness to sit down at any time, in any way, to solve the problem," a top North Korean official said.
