By Shubham

Trump also said in the interview that the secret meeting between CIA chief Mike Pompeo with Kim in North Korea a few weeks ago was not planned either. He said Pompeo wasn't supposed to meet Kim but North Korea arranged for a meeting during his stay there.

Much is being said and written about Trump's meeting with Kim which is proposed to be held in end May or early June. Kim has already met Chinese President Xi Jinping and is due to meet South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday in a historic summit. His proposed meeting with Trump will complete the circle of events in the quest for peace in the North Korean Peninsula.

Trump readily accepted North Korea's offer in March to hold talks and if it turns out to be real, it will be the first-ever between an American president with the highest leader of North Korea - a country which has remained isolated for a long time in world affairs.

Trump also said recently that he would walk out of the meeting with Kim if he sensed that it was not going the desired way. Speaking to Fox News over the telephone, he reiterated that he could walk out quickly "with respect" or may be that the meeting doesn't take place at all, Reuters added. He, however, said that North Korea was willing to make the meeting a reality at the moment, the report added.
