Meeting with Kim Jong Un to take place May or early June

President Donald Trump's meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un will likely take place in late April or early May, Trump confirmed during a cabinet meeting Monday.

On Monday, Mr Trump said he planned to meet Mr Kim in "May or early June".

Trump agreed last month to a landmark meeting with the nuclear-armed leader, which would mark first between a sitting United States president and a North Korean leader, but no specific dates or venue have been set.

North Korea's parliament, called the Supreme People's Assembly, is scheduled to convene Wednesday.

The main issue at the summit will be North Korea's nuclear programme.

But the North remained publicly silent for weeks after its leader's invitation to talks was first delivered to Trump by South Korean officials.

"The U.S. has confirmed that Kim Jong-un is willing to discuss the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula", said a second U.S. official. During previous negotiations under different US administrations, the North has agreed to freeze its nuclear weapons program in exchange for the lifting of global economic sanctions, only to violate the agreement by testing more weapons.

He blamed previous administrations for allowing the relationship with North Korea to get to a crisis point, or failing to negotiate an end to a nuclear program that targets the United States. They 've said. We've said.

Should all go well with Pompeo's confirmation, he should be in place by the time of a prospective summit meeting between Trump and Kim.

In a growing rapprochement (which is an worldwide relations term form "an establishment or resumption of harmonious relations") on the Korean peninsula, Kim is scheduled to meet the South's president Moon Jae-in for a rare inter-Korean summit on April 27.

He said his government has been in touch with the North.

The president added that the historic summit is being set up with North Korea, and that this will be "very exciting for the world".

Trump had accepted an invitation from Kim on behalf of South Korean delegates to the US last month month. The Mongolian capital Ulaanbaatar has also been raised as a possible location, the sources said.
