Bolton explained the desire of Kim Jong UN to hold a summit with trump in Pyongyang

Former White house adviser for national security John Bolton said that the North Korean leader Kim Jong-UN originally wanted to hold a summit with US President Donald trump in Pyongyang or Panmunjom, as I didn't want to be away from the North Korean capital and does not like to fly.

This is stated in his book "the Room where it happened: a memoir of the White house," which went on sale Tuesday.

"Pompeo considered Geneva and Singapore as the two most suitable places, but Kim did not like to fly. The flimsy airplanes of North Korea still could not fly or to one of (these) cities, and he (Kim Jong UN) would not be too far away from Pyongyang," added Bolton.

The first ever summit of U.S. and the DPRK took place on 12 June 2018 in Singapore. After this between trump and Kim Jong-UN has held two meetings, one of which took place on the territory of the demilitarized zone in Panmunjom.
