A stunning development on the global stage: President Donald Trump has agreed to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by the month of May.

The announcement paves the way for a massive diplomatic victory for Trump. His administration has had little to show in its first year in office.

The White House and a South Korean delegation met and discussed offers made by the North Korean leader to meet with the American leader.

Trump accepted the invitation on the basis of the denuclearization of North Korea.

Earlier this week, Kim said he was willing to abandon the country’s nuclear programme and to meet up with Trump.

“We look forward to the denuclearization of North Korea. In the meantime, all sanctions and maximum pressure must remain,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders announced in a statement.

The stunning announcement came after Kim extended the invitation to Trump.
The North Koreans had chosen to negotiate with Trump through South Korean officials, who met with Trump on Thursday.
Trump would be the first sitting US president to meet with his North Korean counterpart.
It will be one of the biggest achievements by the Trump administration if it happens and a peace deal is ironed.
However, nothing is certain with both Trump’s and Kim’s off-the-cuff reactions seen in the past.
