IANS Washington
US President Donald Trump has said that there would likely be a US-North Korea meeting in the "next three or four weeks", but "whatever happens, happens", the media reported.
Trump made the remarks while addressing a boisterous crowd at a rally on Saturday outside Detroit, reports Efe news.
"We are doing things that are good. I think we'll have a meeting over the next three or four weeks, it's going to be a very important meeting", Trump said.
"The denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, of North Korea. The de-nuke! De-nuke! But we'll see how it goes. And again, whatever happens, happens.
"Look, I may go in. It may not work out. I leave... I'm not going to give you what's going to actually happen because we don't really know", the President added, to loud cheers.
Trump spoke with South Korean President Moon Jae-In earlier on Saturday, and in the speech he said the Seoul leader credited him for the apparent progress with Kim, reports CNN.
"He gives us tremendous credit... He gives us all the credit," Trump said of Moon later at the rally.
The White House has previously said that Trump would meet with Kim at the end of May or beginning of June.
The proposed meeting between would be the first ever between the leaders of North Korea and the US. The location for the summit is yet to be determined.
Trump's Saturday remarks comes after Kim on Friday crossed the demilitarized zone that divides the Korean Peninsula and met Moon, the first time the leaders of North and South Korea met in person since 2007.
Following a full day of talks and symbolic events, both Moon and Kim issued a statement calling for the end of the Korean War and heralding a "new era of peace".
