Trump Reportedly To Meet Kim Jong Un By May

U.S. President Donald Trump agreed to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by May, a South Korean official reportedly said Thursday in Washington.

South Korea's national security adviser, Chung Eui-yong, told reporters at the White House that Trump told him he would accept Kim's invitation to meet with him as soon as possible.

The announcement comes after a year of tensions over North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

A meeting between sitting leaders of the U.S. and North Korea would be unprecedented. Chung didn't provide specifics on when or where the meeting will take place.

Kim is committed to denuclearization and would refrain from nuclear or missile tests, Chung reportedly said. The North Korean leader also understands that routine U.S.-South Korea joint military exercises must continue, Chung said, adding that the pressure campaign will continue "until North Korea matches its words with concrete actions."
