Meanwhile, Trump also disputed a published report that he had asked the Pentagon to present a plan for the withdrawal or reduction of US forces stationed in South Korea, saying such a move was "not on the table".

The New York Times reported that Trump has asked the Pentagon to prepare plans for scaling back the USA military presence in the allied Asian nation.

The officials said, however, that a peace treaty between the two Koreas could diminish the need for the 23,500 US soldiers now stationed on the peninsula, the newspaper said.

In a separate survey also conducted by Realmeter, 71.4 percent of 501 respondents said they believe the North will actually denuclearize this time around in a complete, verifiable and irreversible way. But his exact demands for relinquishing weapons that his nation spent decades building remains unclear.

Six South Koreans are also being held in North Korea, but their status remains uncertain despite an otherwise successful inter-Korean summit last Friday.

But he also said he would eventually like to bring them home.


"We now have a date".

"We now have a date and we have a location, we'll be announcing it soon", Mr Trump told USA journalists outside the White House on Friday, adding that he was expecting "very, very good things" to come out it.

Preparations for the Trump-Kim meeting have gathered further momentum since the Korean summit. Those details await Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump, who are expected to meet in the coming weeks.

"I think a lot of great things will happen but troops are not on the table", he said, referring to the ongoing negations with North Korea.

But Trump added that "at some point in the future, I'd like to save the money" that it costs to base 30,000 troops on the peninsula, a security arrangement that has been in place since the Korean War armistice in 1953.

"The trip is being scheduled", Trump said as he departed the White House Friday morning en route to Dallas. Still, it would be a quixotic move as he enters into negotiations with Kim.
