Pyongyang Remains Silent On Proposed Trump, Kim Jong Un Meeting

March 12, 2018 - 1:21 pm

WASHINGTON D.C. (1010 WINS) -- The time and place for President Donald Trump's meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have yet to be set.

Kim hasn't spoken about the invitation which was relayed last week by South Korean officials.

South Korea's National Security Director Chung Eui-yong walked out of a meeting at the White House last week, and made a shocking announcement about North Korea's president.

"Kim Jong Un said he is committed to denuclearization," he said.

He said Kim promised to end his nuclear and missile testing and asked for a meeting with president Trump.

"President Trump appreciated the briefing and said he would meet Kim Jong Un by May," he said.

He said along with Trump, they are committed and optimistic about talks and efforts to denuclearize North Korea.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the U.S. has, "not heard anything directly back from North Korea" since Trump accepted the invitation. He said he does expect to hear directly from Pyongyang.

Speaking from a news conference in Nigeria, Tillerson said many steps must occur before the meeting between Trump and Kim, and that things were in the "very early stages." He added that it's time to be patient and see what happens.

An official delegation from South Korea is reportedly discussing the summit with other interested nations.

There are a lot of different allies and stakeholders who want a say in the negotiations. Correspondent Matt Rivers explained the South Korean delegation has been going around the world to brief different stakeholders on the results of a meeting they had with Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang.

Seoul's lead envoy will meet with China's leader while others in the South Korean delegation will sit down with the Prime Minister of Japan.
