US President Donald Trump will meet with North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un by May, it has been revealed.

Speaking outside the White House on Thursday, South Korean national security adviser Chung Eui-yong confirmed the breakthrough meeting.

“I explained to President Trump that his leadership and his maximum pressure policy, together with international solidarity, brought us to this juncture,” Mr Chung said.


He also revealed that the Korean leader had agreed to stop nuclear and missile testing.

“Kim Jong-un said he is committed to denuclearisation. Kim pledged that North Korea will refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests.”


White House press secretary Sarah Sanders also confirmed the news in a statement.

“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,” Ms Sanders said.

“We look forward to the denuclearization of North Korea. In the meantime, all sanctions and maximum pressure must remain.”

Of course, President Trump himself also took to Twitter, confirming the meeting is “being planned!”
