The announcement came Wednesday during a press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
Currently, three Americans are detained in North Korea, after a fourth detainee was released last year.
This comes two days after it was revealed CIA Director Mike Pompeo engaged in direct talks with the Korean dictator, and the issue of American prisoners was brought up.
“The fact is that they do have three prisoners. We have been talking about them, we’re negotiating now. We are doing our very best, as you know, they’ve been there a long time and it’s harsh treatment. We are likewise fighting very diligently to get the three American citizens back . I think there is a good chance of doing it, we’re having very good dialogue.” -President Trump
President trump is expected to meet with Kim Jong Un at an undetermined location sometime late next month.
