WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump said he would meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un by May to achieve denuclearization, South Korean National Security Advisor Chung Eui-Yong said Thursday in a short statement outside the White House.
The stunning agreement to meet came after North Korea pledged to refrain from further nuclear tests during negotiations. In recent talks with South Korea, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un “expressed eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible,” the South Korean national security advisor, who briefed Trump Thursday, said.
The South Korean delegation also delivered a letter from North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un to the White House Thursday, a senior U.S. official told NBC News.
The South Koreans were at the White House Thursday to brief U.S. National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster and other top officials on recent talks with the North Korean regime.
News of the letter comes amid promises from President Trump that a “major statement” on North Korea would be coming from the White House Thursday night.
The president made a spontaneous stop into the White House press briefing room Thursday evening to tell reporters, including NBC News, that an announcement on “the big subject” — North Korea — would be coming from South Korea that evening. Trump said then that he had spoken with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
South Korean National Security Advisor Chung Eui-Yong is expected to brief reporters from outside the White House.
Earlier this week, Pyongyang signaled its willingness to hold talks with Washington on denuclearization, saying it will suspend its nuclear tests while talks are underway.
Asked about the developments earlier this week, Trump expressed optimism, saying he believed overtures from the North Koreans were “sincere,” attributing them to “very, very strong” sanctions and increased pressure from China.
