Giuliani: Kim Jong-un 'begged' for summit to take place

BBC reports that, Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani has said North Korea's leader "begged" for their summit to be rescheduled after the US president cancelled it.

Speaking at a conference in Israel, Mr Giuliani said Mr Trump's tough stance had forced Pyongyang's hand.

Mr Trump called off the summit in May, accusing North Korea of "tremendous anger and open hostility".

But plans for the 12 June bilateral in Singapore were revived after a conciliatory response from Pyongyang.

Mr Giuliani was speaking at an investment conference in Israel when he made the remark.

The Wall Street Journal first reported that Mr Giuliani said: "Well, Kim Jong-un got back on his hands and knees and begged for it, which is exactly the position you want to put him in."

Mr Giuliani is an attorney for the president tackling the Russia collusion inquiry.

There was no immediate response from the North Koreans to his comments.

My view : Kim Jong-un wants economic development for his country, and if has to beg anyone for that to happen, who would blame him for doing so. Kim knows what he's doing and he's winning at all front for now, Giuliani can continue to run his mouth while Kim seats there and laugh his head off. In actual fact Trump is the one who is desperate for the summit to happen as he'll claim it as a big victory for just being seen standing next to Kim Jong-un and he'll tell all his supporters that he has been able to do what other presidents couldn't achieve. Kim Jong-un knows that Trump likes being praised and treated like a pampered teddy bear.
