Trump in Pyongyang? Report says he has been invited

The next time Donald Trump meets with Kim Jong Un, it could be here - North Korea's capital Pyongyang.

That is, at least, if the U.S. President responds favorably to a letter from the North Korean leader he reportedly received in August, amid stalled denuclearization talks.

A South Korean newspaper said on Monday (September 16), citing diplomatic sources, that Kim sent a letter to Trump in the third week of August, speaking of his willingness for a third summit and extending an invitation to the capital.

On August 9, Trump said he received a quote "very beautiful letter" from Kim but U.S. officials have not said anything about this second letter that month.

The pair have met three times since June last year to discuss a crisis over North Korea's missile and nuclear programs, but progress has been scant.

Their first two meetings were formal summits - the second of which, in Vietnam in February, broke down after they failed to narrow the gap between U.S. demands for denuclearization and North Korea's insistence on sanctions relief.

They met for a third time in June in the demilitarized zone between the two Koreas where they agreed to restart working level talks.

But that has not happened.

Since the June meeting North Korea has tested short range projectiles on several occasions.

The White House, the U.S. State Department and the North Korean mission to the United Nations did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

On Thursday (September 12), Trump said he would be willing to meet Kim at some point this year.
