Moon and Trump will hold summit in Washington in June


President Moon Jae-in will have a summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in Washington D.C. in late June, the Blue House said Tuesday.

The summit was agreed to at a meeting in Seoul between Chung Eui-yong, head of Moon’s security and foreign affairs task force, and a visiting senior White House official, Matthew Pottinger, senior director for East Asia at the National Security Council.

According to Yoon Young-chan, senior public affairs secretary of the Blue House, the meeting took place at the Blue House. President Moon also met with Pottinger briefly, Yoon said.

“Specific schedules and agendas will be discussed further through diplomatic channels,” Yoon said. “We will prepare to make the summit an opportunity to bolster personal bonding and friendship between the two leaders.”
