South Korea’s national security adviser Chung Eui-yong said President Trump has agreed to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong un, and the North is “committed” to denuclearization. The meeting is intended to take place by May.
Chung also said Kim Jong un has agreed to refrain from nuclear testing, and routine joint military exercises between the North and South will continue as planned.
The announcement was made at the White House after President Trump walked into the White House briefing room Thursday and told reporters that South Korea would be making a major announcement at 7 p.m. He added that he has spoken with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
“South Korea is going to be making a huge statement tonight on a big subject … on a big subject…on North Korea,” said Mr. Trump, according to CBS News Jacqueline Alemany. Journalists were instructed by the president to turn off their cameras. South Korean news agency Yonhap reported that the South Korean national security adviser, Chung Eui-yong, would be holding a joint press briefing with White House press secretary Sarah Sanders at the White House at 7 p.m.
