President Donald Trump has accepted North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s invitation to meet with him, and the pair will meet by May, South Korea’s national security adviser Chung Eui-Yong said at the White House on Thursday night. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed that the president has accepted the invitation, and said it would occur “at a place and time to be determined.” Top South Korean officials were at the White House just days after a delegation met with Kim in Pyongyang in a rare in-person rendezvous. In addition to a meeting with Trump, North Korea has also offered to halt its nuclear tests. Chung praised Trump’s “leadership and maximum-pressure policy” against North Korea. According to Chung, Kim said North Korea is committed to denuclearization. Sanders said U.S. sanctions and its maximum-pressure campaign will remain in place for the time being.
