South Korea: Donald Trump to Meet Kim Jong Un by May
President Donald Trump has accepted North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s invitation to meet with him, and the pair will meet by May, South Korea’s national security adviser Chung Eui-Yong said at the White House on Thursday night. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed that the president has accepted the invitation, and said it would occur “at a place and time to be determined.” Top South Korean officials were at the White House just days after a delegation met with Kim in Pyongyang in a rare in-person rendezvous. In addition to a meeting with Trump, North Korea has also offered to halt its nuclear tests. Chung praised Trump’s “leadership and maximum-pressure policy” against North Korea. According to Chung, Kim said North Korea is committed to denuclearization. Sanders said U.S. sanctions and its maximum-pressure campaign will remain in place for the time being.
