US President Trump stated that there was a possibility that a planned summit with North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un could still go ahead on June 12 as originally scheduled.

"We're going to see what happens. We're talking to them right now. It could even be the 12th… We want to do it," Trump told reporters.

Earlier in the day, the US president welcomed what he called warm and productive statements from North Korea, calling the recent remarks made by the country's leader Kim Jong-un "very good news."

In his statement, Trump referred to the comments published by North Korea's state-run news agency KCNA, in which Kim said that he wanted the United States to know Pyongyang wants to sit down at "any time" to solve problems with Washington.

KCNA also reported that Kim said Trump's decision to cancel their planned summit on June 12 in Singapore was not consistent with the world's desire for peace and stability.

On Thursday, Trump sent a letter to Kim announcing his decision to cancel the summit. Trump cited anger and hostility in recent statements by Kim as a reason for pulling out of the highly anticipated meeting.
