Mongolia and Singapore are the two neutral grounds being considered for a meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un, APA reports quoting The Daily Mail.

The list was narrowed down on Saturday after Trump spoke with South Korean president Moon Jae-in who made history on Friday by welcoming Jong-un after decades of frosty relations.

After their meeting, Trump and Jae-in spoke on the phone to discuss his looming meeting and the president, as is often the case on Saturday mornings, kept the nation updated on Twitter.

'Just had a long and very good talk with President Moon of South Korea. Things are going very well, time and location of meeting with North Korea is being set.

'Also spoke to Prime Minister Abe of Japan to inform him of the ongoing negotiations,' he said.

CBS's Major Garrett cites sources who says Mongolia and Singapore are the favorites. Trump would not be drawn on the details of where the meeting will take place or when but told reporters on Friday that it would happen in the next few weeks.

'We're down to two countries as to a site, and we'll let you know what that site is,' he said, during a news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Moon vowed earlier this week 'there will be no more war' and the pair agreed to 'complete denuclearisation', a stunning victory after months of frightening threats and missile tests.
