President Donald Trump’s national security adviser, John Bolton, has shared his insights on continued talks between the United States and North Korea.
Bolton shared with ABC’s “This Week” that while Trump remains confident in developing ties, it may be sometime before another summit is attempted.
“The president’s confident in his personal relationship with Kim Jong Un. He’s invested a lot of time in trying to develop that relationship,” Bolton said.
“He said he’s open to a third summit, none has been scheduled, and some time may have to go by. But he’s prepared to engage again because he does think that the prospects for North Korea, which he’s been trying to persuade Kim Jong Un to accept if they denuclearized, are really quite spectacular,” Bolton continued.
Despite the last summit being abruptly cut short, Bolton remained confident that North Korea will come back to the negotiating table.
“It’s possible that North Korea will go back and rethink the position they came in with and come back to talk to the president about the big deal,” Bolton shared in a separate interview with Fox.
