Hours later, at a hastily arranged appearance on the White House driveway at night, Chung told reporters that Kim had "expressed his eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible" and that "President Trump appreciated the briefing and said he would meet Kim Jong Un by May to achieve permanent denuclearization".
Former Bush administration official Victor Cha, who was the Trump administration's choice to serve as ambassador to South Korea before his withdrawal, said North Korea has agreed to freeze testing, permit U.S.
I further note that in a readout of a call with President Xi just released moments ago the White House says "the two leaders welcomed the prospect of dialogue between the United States and North Korea ..."
"We must avoid repeating mistakes of the past, but I hope the United States will accept our judgment on Kim and not pass up this opportunity", Chung is said to have told Trump, according to Yonhap.
"A meeting is being planned", Trump said on Twitter after speaking to Chung, setting up what would be his biggest foreign policy gamble since taking office in January 2017.
"In addition to the issue of nuclear weapons and missiles, there is the important issue of abductions". With longtime North Korea envoy Joseph Yun's recent departure from the State Department, along with the continued lack of a USA ambassador to South Korea, the current prospects seem dim.
"That is an incredible thing, and I don't think anyone watching this, or any expert on Korea expected that response at this time", said CNN's Erin Burnett. The White House says it will happen sometime within the next few months. "Dead stop. The flourishing ends, and the prison state of North Korea sadly begins". "Let's be clear, the United States has made zero concessions, but North Korea has made some promises". North Korea is feeling more isolated. Replying to threats in a speech Trump gave at the United Nations, Kim said he'd "surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged US dotard with fire". No sitting US president has ever met with a North Korean leader. But the only nuclear weapons on the Korean Peninsula belong to North Korea.
The President reportedly accepted the invitation from the North Korean leader nearly on the spot, making a unilateral decision and up-ending decades of U.S. foreign policy. What if Kim insists the summit be held in North Korea's capital?
Shigeo Iizuka, head of the group representing abductees' families, credited the North Korean leader for making the right decision. Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached.
Cha's right. A senior Trump administration official said on Thursday that the United States will continue applying "sanctions and maxium pressure" on North Korea. Trump's insistence that USA allies share more of the burden for their own defense, meanwhile, has spurred South Korea, and Japan as well, to begin to increase their own military spending.
During his tenure, Trump has used more threatening rhetoric than any of his predecessors, vowing "fire and fury" against a North Korea threat.
Unlike an episode of The Apprentice, the Trump-Kim talks will not be a simple yes-or-no transaction, and Mr. Trump will not be bargaining from a position of strength. (The case for 41 of 188 of USA embassies and worldwide organizations.) And while the US does not have formal diplomatic relations with North Korea, Joseph Yun, the special representative for North Korea and one of America's most experienced North Korea experts, recently retired.
Kim and Trump have engaged in an increasingly bellicose exchange of insults over the North's nuclear and missile programmes, which it pursues in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions, before an easing of tension coinciding with last month's Winter Olympics in the South.
Dennis Rodman, who many be the only person in the world able to claim a friendship with both Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un, praised the two world leaders Friday and their plans to come together for an unprecedented diplomatic summit.
