President Trump announces he’s cautiously optimistic, as he agrees to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
In a tweet this Thursday, the president said great progress is being made, but sanctions will remain in place until an agreement is reached.
His statement came after South Korean officials met with the President and his national security team, and delivered a message from North Korea’s leader.
That message included an invitation to meet face-to-face and a pledge to suspend nuclear missile testing.
South Korea’s National Security Adviser Chung Eui-Yong praised the president’s leadership and maximum sustained pressure campaign.
He said the leaders will meet by May for talks to achieve permanent denuclearization.
“I told President Trump that in our meeting North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said he is committed to denuclearization,” said Chung. Kim pledged that North Korea will refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests. He understands that the routine joint military exercises between the Republic of Korea and the United States must continue. And he expressed his eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible.”
He went on to say both Koreas have agreed to hold a leadership summit in late April.
News of the announcement came when President Trump made his first ever appearance in the White House press briefing room and first spoke to One America News.
