Kim confirms


North Korea has confirmed to the White House that it is willing to talk about denucleari­sation, Trump Administra­tion officials say. The confirmati­on offers greater assurances that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is committed to a potential meeting with US President Donald Trump by the end of next month. South Korean emissaries had presented Kim’s invitation to meet Trump, who quickly agreed. But Pyongyang has been silent publicly since then about a summit. White House officials have not said where it will be held. CNN reported that it could be in the Mongolian capital, Ulaanbaata­r. The agenda of the meeting is not yet known, and North Korea has not been clear about what steps it is willing to take to move toward denucleari­sation.
