Trump-Kim Jong un meeting only if North Korea fulfills promises: White House

Posted In: News Date:Mar 13th, 2018

The meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong un would go as planned if Pyongyang sticks to the promises it made, particularly regarding missiles and nuclear test, the White House said on Monday.

Last week, a South Korean delegation, led by its national security advisor, informed Trump that Kim Jong un has invited him for a meeting. The invitation, conveyed orally, was accepted by Trump, a decision that took the world by surprise.

“We fully expect that it (the meeting) will (take place). The offer was made and we’ve accepted. North Korea made several promises and we hope that they would stick to those promises and, if so, the meeting will go on as planned,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters at her daily news conference.
