President Donald Trump agreed Thursday to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un by May after Kim pledged in a letter to refrain from further nuclear tests and move toward denuclearization, according to South Korean officials.
The surprise announcement was made by South Korean National Security Advisor Chung Eui-Yong in a short statement outside the White House. There was no official confirmation of the meeting from the White House, but prior to the announcement, Trump dropped by the White House press room to hint at the major announcement to come, suggesting that he was supportive.
