"Who knows where it leads? Hopefully it will lead to success for the world, not just for our country, but for the world. And we'll be seeing over the next number of weeks and months what happens."

The comment came after his phone conversation with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

The White House said that during the phone talks, President Trump said the U.S. is open to talks with North Korea at the appropriate time under the right conditions.

It also said that Moon briefed Trump on Tuesday's inter-Korean talks and thanked Trump for his leadership in bringing about the meeting.

The White House added that the two leaders stressed the importance of maintaining "maximum pressure" on North Korea.
