History is set to be made on June 12th in the Asian country of Singapore. That's the time and place when a sitting U.S. president will meet and a sitting leader of North Korea. And it will be the first time ever that's happened.
U.S. President Donald Trump announced this yesterday on Twitter. He previously indicated that he liked the idea of the meeting being held at the demilitarized zone, the border between North Korea and South Korea. And those two countries wanted that too.
But top officials in the Trump administration wanted a place that was seen as more neutral than the border on Korean soil, or in a communist country like China or Russia. So, Singapore, which is about 3,000 miles from the North Korea capital and 9,700 miles from the American capital, is the place.
