President Donald Trump has agreed to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by May for direct talks about that country’s nuclear arms and long-range missile programs, according to a senior South Korean official. Such a meeting would be the first between an American president and a North Korean leader.
Trump “will accept the invitation to meet with Kim at a place and time to be determined. We look forward to the denuclearization of North Korea. In the meantime, all sanctions and maximum pressure must remain,” Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.
