Pyongyang has informed Washington of its willingness to discuss the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula during a summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump, a US official said on Sunday.
The official, who asked not to be named, told Reuters that US and North Korean officials had recently made secret contacts. He added that Pyongyang has confirmed during these meetings directly its willingness to hold this unprecedented summit.
The US official declined to specify when and how the contacts between the United States and North Korea would be held, but said the two sides had several direct contacts.
“The United States has confirmed that Kim Jong-un is ready to discuss the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula,” a second US official said.
Kim and Tramb exchanged hostile remarks last year, but the strained relations were positive after visiting Korean envoys from Pyongyang and then Washington to inform Trump of Kim’s willingness to meet him.
Trump surprised the world by agreeing quickly to Kim’s meeting to discuss the crisis over Pyongyang’s development of nuclear weapons capable of striking the United States.
North Korea has been saying for years that it might consider abandoning its nuclear arsenal if the United States withdraws its troops from South Korea and withdraws what it calls the nuclear deterrence umbrella from Japan and Japan.
