Donald Trump is set to meet with North Korean Leader Kim Jong-Un in May according to a new report.
On Thursday, the South Korean delegation that spoke with Kim Jong-Un as part of peace talks arrived in Washington, D.C. to speak to the White House about what was said during their meeting.
Republic of Korea National Security Advisor Chung Eui-Yong said that the North Korean leader “is committed to denuclearization,” before adding that Trump agreed to meet with Kim Jong-Un come May.
According to senior U.S. Officials, the North Korean dictator asked for Trump to come to the table for peace talks and promised to suspend nuclear missile testing – a promise that has been broken before.
In a statement from the White House, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the upcoming meeting.
“President Trump greatly appreciates the nice words of the South Korean delegation and President Moon. He will accept the invitation to meet with Kim Jong Un 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,” she said.
