Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says Canada will be closely watching any upcoming meetings between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
An invitation was extended by North Korea earlier this week, according to Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary. She added that the president was promised denuclearization.
In a statement given Thursday evening, Sanders said Trump "will accept the invitation to meet with Kim Jong-un at a place and time to be determined."
It's a development the international community would have deemed unthinkable a few months ago, as tweets and insults were flying between the two leaders.
