President Donald Trump on Tuesday praised North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to reporters, describing him as "very open" and "very honorable."
"We have been told directly that they would like to have the meeting as soon as possible. We think that's a great thing for the world," Trump said, while hosting French President Emmanuel Macron at the White House, according to The Associated Press.
"Kim Jong Un, he really has been very open and I think very honorable from everything we're seeing."
North Korea announced last week that it would cease its nuclear testing program. Trump added that although North Korea has not kept to its previous promises, his administration is prepared to "leave the table" if North Korea is not cooperative.
"I hope that we will be able to deal in a very open and honorable fashion with North Korea," he said, according to Politico. "We'll see where that all goes. Maybe it will be wonderful or maybe it won't."
