The U.S. President, Donald Trump, plans to meet with the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, in May 2018.

This was confirmed on March 9 by the White House, Ukrinform reported.

“He will accept the invitation to meet with Kim Jong-un at a place and time to be determined. We look forward to the denuclearisation of North Korea. In the meantime, all sanctions and maximum pressure must remain,” said Sarah Sanders, the White House Press Secretary.

Trump expressed his opinion about this issue on Twitter.

“Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze. Also, no missile testing by North Korea during this period of time. Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached. Meeting being planned!” Trump wrote.

China, Japan and South Korea have welcomed the announcement.

Earlier, Trump stretched the sanctions against Russia for one more year.
