Trump proposes DMZ for his summit with Kim

President Trump indicated Saturday the "time and location of [his] meeting with North Korea is [sic] being set," and Monday morning he tweeted a location idea: the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), the 2.5 mile-wide neutral territory between North and South Korea.

Trump's phrasing was tentative, suggesting this is not an official announcement for the summit between the president and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, which is supposed to occur in May.

The Peace House and the Freedom House are located on the South Korean side of the Military Demarcation Line (MDL), the border between the two Koreas at the center of the DMZ. Nearby, on the North's side of the MDL, is the Unification Pavilion, which is also used for diplomatic ventures.
