The meeting is expected by the end of May or early June.

Mr Trump commented as he was asked about South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s recent suggestion that Mr Trump could take the Nobel Peace Prize if the two Koreas receive peace in return.

Mr Trump said Mr Moon’s statement was “very generous”.

Mr Trump said the main thing is “we want to get peace”.
