The President has publicly discarded those worries and sent signals he is intent on carrying out the talks he himself canceled only four days ago.
Criticising the U.S. leader directly, Lord Hague added: "Trump is the one American leader of recent decades who could agree to that".
Lindsey Ford, who now serves as Director of Political-Security Affairs at the Asia Society Policy Institute, wrote an op-ed last week for The New York Times claiming that Trump was "outplayed" by North Korea and that the letter the president sent to North Korean Dictator Kim was proof that the administration has "undermined its own leverage".

The Miami Herald reported that Holt had been among those inside the Helicoide prison during a rebellion against guards last week. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, tweeted he is "very happy for Josh Holt & his family".
"Our United States team has arrived in North Korea to make arrangements for the Summit between Kim Jong Un and myself", Trump wrote on Twitter, in Washington's first confirmation that U.S. officials had entered North Korea for the talks.
At the White House, Trump said negotiations over a potential June 12 summit with Kim that he had earlier canceled were "going along very well".
"The president and prime minister affirmed the shared imperative of achieving the complete and permanent dismantlement of North Korea's nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and ballistic missile programs".
A USA official said Sung Kim, the former USA ambassador to South Korea, would lead an American delegation to meet North Korean officials at the border.
It has long said it is open to eventually giving up its nuclear arsenal if the USA withdraws its troops from South Korea and ends its "nuclear umbrella" alliance with Seoul.
"Chairman Kim agreed on that", he added. And, on Sunday, the president said an American delegation was meeting with North Korean officials in preparation for the meeting.

There has been back and forward over whether the historic meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un will go ahead. The North hasn't openly repeated those same demands after Kim's sudden outreach to Seoul and Washington.
The leaders of the two Koreas held a surprise meeting in a bid to save a summit with the US.
Mr Moon, who returned to Seoul on Thursday morning after meeting Mr Trump in Washington in an effort to keep the US-North Korea summit on track, said he delivered a message of Mr Trump's "firm resolve" to end the hostile relationship with North Korea and pursue bilateral economic cooperation.
"We'll see what happens", he said Friday as he departed for the Naval Academy graduation ceremony in Annapolis, Maryland. In the case of the Iran deal, a detailed plan struck in 2015 that Mr. Trump abandoned this month as insufficient, the negotiations took more than two years. "But I don't think we're going to have a parade of missiles or weapons going through some destruction site that we can put on camera".
Pentagon official Randall Schriver was part of the U.S. team, the official said. But experts are hardly optimistic about a breakthrough, even if the meeting goes ahead.
The White House said over the weekend that a separate team of officials was also on its way to Singapore, to lay the groundwork for a meeting.
Gen Kim was scheduled to fly to NY on Wednesday, after speaking with Chinese officials in Beijing, Yonhap reported, citing diplomatic sources.
