US NSA John Bolton in South Korea this week for Trump-Kim summit
Washington, Feb 22: The second summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is almost here and preparations are on from both sides.
US National Security Adviser (NSA) John Bolton is set to travel to South Korea this week to discuss matters regarding the summit, CNN reported.
The two leaders, who created history by meeting in Singapore last June for their first summit, will meet in Hanoi, Vietnam, this time. The meeting is set to be a two-day affair on February 27 and 28, as the US has announced, although the schedule of the meeting is yet to be revealed.
It has been reported that Kim will arrive for the meeting from North Korea by train.
The CNN report cited two officials of Trump administration who said that Bolton will hold "a round of consultations" in South Korea.
Although Seoul hasn't confirmed it, it has been speculated that the US NSA would speak to South Korean National Security Officer Chung Eui-yong.
Spokesperson of the Blue House, the official residence of the South Korean president, Kim Eui-kyeom had earlier informed that the two national security personnel would keep a close communication.
He said this while announcing that Trump and his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in would have a telephonic talk over the upcoming summit.
