Trump indicated he never emphasized the timeline that Pyongyang would need to denuclearize.

President Donald Trump has confirmed that his administration is preparing for another meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in the “not too distant future.”

Addressing reporters at the White House on Wednesday, Trump said he received a “great” letter from Kim, and anticipates a meeting with him very soon.

The US President said there would have been a “big fat war in Asia” if he had not met Kim during their historic summit in Singapore last year.

Trump indicated he never emphasized the timeline that Pyongyang would need to denuclearize.

RT reports: In his New Year address on Tuesday, Kim said that he was willing to go forward with denuclearization to ease tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

He added, however, that he could reverse course if the US "clings to sanctions and pressure" to get what it wants.

Kim said he was "always ready" to sit down with Trump to come to an agreement.

He added that Pyongyang "could be left with no choice" but to "seek a new way" if Washington reneges on its promises or "misjudges our patience."

Kim also called on South Korea to put an end to war games with the US on the peninsula.

He claimed that "outside interferences" intended to block reconciliation between the two countries.

North Korea's planned denuclearization has stalled since the Singapore summit, with Pyongyang blaming Washington's refusal to lift sanctions.

Last month US special representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun said that the Trump administration had "no intention" of easing its North Korea sanctions.

Some experts have been skeptical about Washington's ability to meet Pyongyang halfway.

Andrew Leung, an international and independent China specialist, told RT that "the Trump administration does not appear the most reliable administration in the world” and that it is “prone to changing tactics.”

"On part of the North Koreans, they see that they have improved the relationship," Leung said.

"They have improved the atmosphere over the Korean peninsula, and they expect to see, at least, some easing of the sanctions and they are not seeing that."
