President Trump has agreed to meet North Korea's Kim Jong Un after getting an invitation Thursday, South Korean officials announced in front of the White House.
Chung Eui-Yong, South Korea's national security advisor, told reporters that the North Korean leader has "expressed his eagerness" to meet with Trump, and that he has also said he is "committed to denuclearization."
Chung said Trump wanted to meet by May, and the president later confirmed on Twitter that a meeting is being planned.
