Former deputy national security adviser to former US President Donald Trump, Matthew Pottinger, said that the politician suggested that the DPRK leader Kim Jong-un fly to North Korea on board number one after the US-North Korean summit in Vietnam. It took place in February 2019.
According to Pottinger, Trump knew that the North Korean leader had arrived at the summit in Hanoi, Vietnam, passing through China by train.
According to him, the then head of the White House told Kim Jong-un that he could deliver him home in two hours if he wanted. The head of the DPRK refused such a proposal, the ex-adviser noted.
As a reminder, in September 2019, Kim Jong-un invited US President Donald Trump to visit Pyongyang. The invitation came to Trump in a letter sent to him in August. Then the American president told reporters only that he had received a “very good message” from the leader of the DPRK.
Note that negotiations between the United States and the DPRK on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula have been frozen since February 2019 after the premature completion of the summit in Vietnam.
As RBC-Ukraine reported earlier, Donald Trump said that he plans to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un by the end of 2019. The meeting did not take place.
