It would be the first face-to-face meeting in history between a US president and a North Korean leader.

The announcement that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un told the White House he wanted to talk with Trump, "was a mild surprise ..."

Tillerson did not define the precise difference between talks and negotiations, and it was unclear what there was for the two countries - still technically at war - would have to discuss if not a deal to address concerns about the North's nuclear weapons program. "Meeting being planned!" he wrote.

According to South Korean officials in Washington, to start the talks with Donald Trump, Kim Jong-un offered the suspension of his nuclear and ballistic missile programme.

The dramatic turn owes much to President Moon Jae-in keeping his word that he would retake the steering wheel in Korean affairs. Either way, it is sincerely hoped that a nuclear North Korea comes to an end.

The thaw came after a period of extreme tension between Washington and Pyongyang that sounded like the growing drumbeat of war.

Kim responded by calling Trump a "mentally deranged USA dotard". One advantage of being there is that it gives President Trump a chance to size up (no pun intended) our adversary, the guy he likes to call Little Rocket Man.

China has indeed enforced the toughest sanctions to date on North Korea: it has stopped textile, coal, iron ore and seafood trade with the country.

It's not clear. It could be that years of sanctions designed force it to talk are working.

That pressure would not abate as the United States heads toward the historic talks, the White House said. But questions remained over exactly what North Korea means by "denuclearize" and what the US might be risking with a highly publicized summit that will build up Kim's stature among world leaders.

It is a gambit fraught with risk for Trump. On multiple occasions, Kim's father Kim Jong Il dangled the prospect of talks and denuclearization as a means of buying time, easing sanctions and dividing South Korea from its allies. Given that North Korea is further along than Iran on the nuclear front, I'm not sure it would even be as good.

Chung, who credited Trump's "maximum pressure" campaign for the diplomatic opening on the nuclear issue, said Kim understands that routine U.S.

The South Koreans said the talks could take place as soon as May; Tillerson said it would take "some weeks" to agree on the timing and the location of the meeting.

South Korea's Kospi index reached its highest point since October, and Japan's Topix Index increased 1.8 percent, Bloomberg reported Friday. If Trump had declined, it would have created "serious friction" with Moon and his pursuit of peace on the Korean peninsula, Mount said. Thus, as we have noted previously, China is the key to effectively dealing with North Korea.

I've always been concerned, however, about the North Koreans providing nuclear technology to those who might well use it against us or our friends.

The White House said afterward that Trump "will accept the invitation", and the president tweeted, "Great progress being made".

The North Koreans have been confused by Trump's unorthodox leadership style, making contact with analysts in Washington with Republican ties.

USA officials were reportedly blindsided by Trump's decision to pop into the briefing room today to reveal an announcement would be taking place regarding North Korea.

"We don't know all the details yet, but because North Korea is an economically-starved country, the invitation is BYO-everything", the host added.
