Mr. Trump announced Friday that his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un will take place as originally planned on June 12 in Singapore as the start of a "process" to rid North Korea of nuclear weapons. But the president quickly expressed hope that the meeting between the two leaders could still happen.
According to Pyongyang's state media, Assad added: "The world welcomes the remarkable events in the Korean peninsula brought about recently by the outstanding political caliber and wise leadership of Kim Jong-un".
The announcement also reflects Mr Kim's push to shed his reclusive image and seek wider contacts, including apparent efforts underway to hold talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
North Korea's nuclear weapons programme has been a source of major security tensions that persisted despite a series of United Nations and US sanctions and it has also demonstrated advances in ballistic missile technology that experts believe now threatens the USA mainland.
