Trump to meet N.Korea's Kim in May or June

The meeting would be the first time a US President has met with a North Korean leader.

It was through these channels that Kim let the USA president know that denuclearisation was on the table in any talks between the two leaders.

The president added that the historic summit is being set up with North Korea, and that this will be "very exciting for the world".

He said the two sides will discuss the denuclearization of North Korea and expressed hope for an improvement in ties.

North Korea has for decades viewed the American military presence in South Korea as part of a "hostile policy" aimed at bringing about its collapse.

However, Pyongyang has never officially confirmed its offer of denuclearisation talks to the White House, which was delivered by a South Korean envoy.

Trump later threatened to hold off on signing the renegotiated deal until after his summit with Kim, which was widely seen as a move to pressure Seoul to remain tough with Pyongyang.

The paper filled its front page with KCNA's report, along with pictures of Kim chairing the politburo meeting.

The two countries have been holding secret meetings to prepare for the summit, trying to work out the logistics of time and meeting place. The previous gatherings took place in the North's capital, Pyongyang, in 2000 and 2007.

"Hopefully, it will be a relationship that will be much different than it has been for many, many years", he said.

It said Kim outlined in detail his analysis on the situation on the Korean Peninsula and mentioned the North-South summit, which will be held on April 27.

Either way, "denuclearization", in the sense that Kim means it, does not equate to what the United States has long sought on the Peninsula: the complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization of North Korea. Before that, Washington had relied mostly on South Korea's assurances of Kim's intentions.

The confirmation follows what seems to be weeks of backchannel diplomatic efforts between the United States and the North Korean government, with the US effort being led primarily by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
