U.S. President Donald Trump has announced that his meeting with top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), Kim Jong Un, will be in Singapore on June 12.
 
World News has more. 
 
Trump tweeted on Thursday quote "The highly anticipated meeting between Kim Jong Un and myself will take place in Singapore on June 12th," and "We will both try to make it a very special moment for World Peace!"
 
Singapore's Ministry of Foreign Affairs later confirmed the meeting would be held in the country. 
 
On April 30, Trump said that Singapore and the Demilitarized Zone separating the DPRK and South Korea could be possible sites for his meeting with Kim.
 
The president on Wednesday ruled out the Demilitarized Zone, a place he clearly preferred in his earlier tweets considering its symbolic implications.
 
U.S. analysts said Singapore was chosen because of its neutrality.
 
Trump's tweet followed the  DPRK's release of three detained U.S. citizens.
 
The detainees returned to the U.S. with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday. Pompeo had been visiting Pyongyang in preparation for the Trump-Kim summit.
