President Trump to meet with North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House says President Donald Trump's meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will be held "at a place and time to be determined."
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a statement after a South Korean official broke the stunning news. Sanders says Trump "will accept the invitation to meet with" Kim.
She also says Trump "greatly appreciates the nice words of the South Korean delegation" and President Moon Jae-in.

South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong spoke outside the White House after a day of briefings with senior U.S. officials, including Trump, on the recent inter-Korea talks. Chung says Trump said "he would meet Kim Jong Un by May to achieve permanent denuclearization" of the Korean peninsula.
Chung says Kim told the South Koreans he is "committed to denuclearization" and pledged that "North Korea will refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests."

Huckabee Sanders said all sanctions will remain in place in the meantime. 
The meeting would be the first of its kind between a leader of North Korea and a sitting president of the United States. The two countries have been in a formal state of war since the Korean War in the 1950s.
