Preparations for the summit have included secret, direct talks with North Korea, unnamed Trump administration sources said. US and North Korean intelligence officials are said to have spoken many times, and met in a third country. It will be the first time a sitting US president has met the leader of North Korea. North Korea has already told South Korea it was prepared to address denuclearisation, but this is the first time assurances have been given to Washington directly. Details of the leaders’ summit, including the location, remain unclear.
