South Korea Says Kim Jong-Un 'Likely' To Hold Summit With Trump in December
Trump and Kim Jong Un could meet again for another nuclear summit
President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un could be set to meet again for another nuclear summit in December, according to South Korea.
The National Intelligence Service met with lawmakers on the intelligence panel during a closed-door parliamentary session saying working-level talks could resume this month or December, Yonhap News reported.
Rep. Kim Min-ki said after the meeting:
“The NIS thinks Kim has set his mind on another summit in December."
Last month, North Korea abandoned talks with U.S. officials in Sweden.
But according to the country's state-run media, a “great operation” was likely coming.
In June this year, Trump became the first sitting US president to enter North Korea in history as he shakes hands with the country's leader, Kim Jong-un.
Although critics dismiss the event as political theatre, many say it is setting the scene for future relations and talks.
The negotiations will be part of an effort to convince North Korea to abandon its controversial nuclear program and build relations with the country, something no other US leader has managed to do.

As Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un sat down together, Kim said he was "surprised" by the open invitation Trump issued over Twitter at the time.
"I was very surprised to hear about your offer on the tweet, and only late in the afternoon, I was able to confirm your invitation."
"I had wanted to meet you again and especially for both Koreas; this place is a sign of the unfortunate history of the past."
Earlier this year, Hillary Clinton said she had little faith in Trump’s ability to negotiate with Kim Jong-un on North Korean denuclearization.
Clinton added that any 'claims of victory' would be like putting “lipstick on a pig.”
The former secretary of state said she doubted Trump's goals would be achieved.
