A South Korea official announced outside the West Wing Thursday evening that Pyongyang has extended an invitation to President Trump to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

“President Trump appreciated the briefing and said he would meet Kim Jong Un by May to achieve permanent denuclearization,” South Korean national security adviser Chung Eui-Yong told reporters.

Chung added that he told Trump that Kim said “he’s committed to denuclearization” and that “Kim pledged that North Korea will refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests.”

Earlier Thursday, South Korean officials revealed that Kim had signaled he was open to discuss dismantling his nuclear weapons program, however, U.S. officials are skeptical of his intentions.
