Mr Trump made the declaration after chats with a senior North Korean agent at the White House.
The agent, General Kim Yong-chol, hand-conveyed a letter from the North Korean pioneer to President Trump.
Mr Trump at first said the letter was “extremely intriguing” yet later said he had not yet opened it. He likewise said the issue of formally finishing the Korean War would be on the table in Singapore. The 1950-53 strife just finished with a ceasefire, not a last peace arrangement. “We’ll be meeting on June twelfth in Singapore. It went extremely well,” President Trump told columnists on the White House grass.
Mr Trump advised that the summit won’t not accomplish a last arrangement on the North’s questionable atomic program.
“I never said it goes in one gathering. I believe it will be a procedure, yet the connections are building and that is extremely positive,” he said.
The notable gathering between Mr Trump and Kim Jong-un would be the first between sitting US and North Korean pioneers. President Trump has offered to help remake the North’s economy on the off chance that it scraps its atomic weapons. Kim Jong-un says he is focused on “denuclearisation” in some frame however his exact requests are hazy.

1 June: Senior North Korean agent General Kim Yong-chol conveys a letter from Mr Kim face to face at the White House. Mr Trump says the summit on 12 June is back on
Gen Kim Yong-chol’s visit to Washington came a day after he met US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in New York.
“President Trump and I trust Chairman Kim is the sort of pioneer who can settle on those sorts of choices. Also, that in the coming many months, we will have the chance to test regardless of whether this is the situation,” he said.
Mr Kim’s letter purportedly communicates his enthusiasm for meeting without making any critical concessions or dangers concerning denuclearisation, the Wall Street Journal reports, refering to a remote government official who was advised on the substance.
This is Trump strategy, unfurling progressively. On the off chance that it’s not what the world expects, if it’s statecraft as we’ve never observed it, that is on account of this is a president not at all like any the American individuals have chosen previously.
From “flame and wrath” to a relationship “tantamount to it’s been in quite a while”. The summit is on, at that point it’s off, now it’s on once more. The president, as saw by his off the cuff 16 minute inquiry and-answer session with assembled correspondents, is lounging on the planet’s spotlight as he directs these memorable transactions.
Passing enactment is hard. Adapting to the Russia examination is irritating. Inviting to the White House the “second most capable man in North Korea”, as Mr Trump called Kim Yong-chol, is nearly simple.
Indeed, even as Mr Trump proclaimed the advance being made, he was making light of desires for the forthcoming summit, which he said was never wanted to end in some fantastic marking function.
For the occasion, it shows up the Singapore meeting will be just an initial step – a shot for a notable photograph operation and a desire for leaps forward to come.
For a president who numerous idea a year ago was barrelling toward war, in any case, that seems all that could possibly be needed.
