NEW YORK -- The planning for a June 12 summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un intensified on Tuesday with diplomats making preparations in three locations: the Panmunjom truce village, Singapore and now New York.

"The president thinks ongoing discussions are going very well," White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters traveling with Trump on Air Force One to Nashville, Tennessee, on Tuesday, Reuters reported. "The meetings taking place over this week ... certainly are signs of progress," Sanders said, signaling that the U.S. side is prepared for the summit to be held on the original date.
