President Trump on Saturday expressed optimism about his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, but warned that the opportunity won’t happen again, calling it a “one-time shot.”

Trump made his remarks in Charlevoix, Canada, at the end of the G-7 summit in a press conference as he prepared to depart for Singapore where he will meet with Kim on Tuesday to discuss issues such as North Korea denuclearization and an end to the Korean War.

Trump expressed hope that the summit would be good for world peace but also for the dictatorship.

  Trump lavished praise on Kim Jong Un's 'very nice' letter. A few minutes later, he said he hadn't even read it. Trump made the decision to meet with Kim Jong Un based on a letter he didn't even read. Trump announced on Friday that he would meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on June 12 in Singapore after all. He decided the summit was back on after meeting with a North Korean envoy who came to deliver a letter from Kim. The two leaders have been swapping letters in recent weeks, and apparently their pen pal relationship has paid off — Trump excitedly told reporters that relations between the U.S. and North Korea were moving in a "positive" direction. The latest letter changed Trump's mind after he scrapped plans for a summit in Singapore last month, he said.

“He wasn't supposed to meet with Kim Jong Un . Leaders of North and South Korea are slated to meet Friday for the first time , another step toward the planned U. S .- North Korea summit .

U. S . President Donald Trump has agreed to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by May for a first -ever bilateral summit , U. S . and South Korean officials said Thursday, a move that may lead to a breakthrough on the North Korean nuclear issue.

“We think North Korea will be a tremendous place in a very short period of time,” he said.

He added that the North Korean government was “working very well” with the U.S. and said: “so far so good.”

"We'll have to see what happens and we're going to know very soon."

The road to the summit has been bumpy, with Trump pulling out of the summit last month after aggressive language from Hermit Kingdom.

“You talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that I pray to God they will never have to be used,” he said in a letter to Kim.

Trump days later announced that the summit was back on but has remained only cautiously optimistic about how the historic meeting would pan out. On Saturday, he told reporters that while he was optimistic, Kim would only get one chance.

— President Trump dispatched the C.I.A. director Mike Pompeo to North Korea to meet with its leader, Kim Jong - un , in recent weeks to lay the groundwork for a summit meeting between Mr. Kim and Mr. Trump , two people briefed on the secret trip said on Tuesday.

The Trump -Abe summit at Trump ' s Mar-a-Lago retreat in Palm Beach comes as US officials are working to set up a summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in late May or early June.

“It’s unknown territory in the truest sense, but I really feel confident," he said. "I feel that Kim Jong Un wants to do something great for his people and he has that opportunity and he won't have that opportunity again."

"It’s a one-time shot and I think it's going to work out very well," he said.

At the end of the presser, he said that the minimum he was hoping for was a relationship and a dialogue. When asked how quickly he will know if something good will come of the summit and if Kim was serious, Trump said he’d know very quickly.

“Within the first minute I’ll know,” he said.

As for what issues would be raised at the summit, Trump said everything will be on the table:

“We’re going to raise every issue, every issue will be raised,” he said.
