President Donald Trump told reporters Thursday that a delegation of North Korean diplomats will travel to Washington, D.C., in the coming days to deliver a personal letter from Kim Jong-Un.

Trump’s comments came after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with a North Korean delegation in New York City Thursday in a bid to save a summit between Kim Jong-Un and Trump.

Trump initially canceled the planned summit after the North Korean delegation stood up U.S. diplomats during meetings and for its rhetoric threatening nuclear war.

Trump told reporters, “It’s a process. It’s all a process. We’ll see and hopefully will have a meeting on the 12th that’s going along very well but I want it to be meaningful. It doesn’t mean it gets all done at one meeting. Maybe you have to have a second third and maybe we’ll have none, but it’s in good hands. That I can tell you.”
