International Desk:

South Korea says it feels relieved about the revived talks for a summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un over the future of Kim’s nuclear weapons program.

The statement by Seoul’s presidential office on Saturday came hours after Trump welcomed North Korea’s conciliatory response to his Thursday letter withdrawing from the summit, and said the meeting might be getting back on track.

Trump tweeted later Friday that the summit, if it does happen, will likely take place June 12 in Singapore, as originally planned.

Seoul’s Blue House says it’s “carefully” watching the developments between Washington and Pyongyang.unb
