Negotiations should be held before May 2018.
President of the United States Donald Trump agreed to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong-no. This was announced by the adviser on national security of South Korea Chon Yi Yong during a press conference in the White House.
According to him, South Korea acted as a mediator in the negotiations and conveyed the desire of Kim Jong-un to meet with Trump “as soon as possible.” The US president decided to agree to make sure that the DPRK refused from nuclear ambitions. Trump noted that he was ready to do it “before May.”
Chung Yi Yong also noted that at a meeting with representatives of South Korea Kim Jong-un promised to stop any further nuclear and missile tests.
Immediately after the press conference at the White House, Trump confirmed the information on the negotiations in his Twitter account. He noted that the speech at the meeting with South Korea was not only about suspending the tests, but about full denuclearization.
Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze. Also, no missile testing by North Korea during this period of time. Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached. Meeting being planned!
