Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un to meet

The leaders of the USA and North Korea will meet for the first time ever. President Donald Trump and Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un will meet to discuss North Korea's denuclearization. The US Vice-President said diplomacy had brought North Korea to talks and that, "President Trump's strategy to isolate the Kim regime is working". A North Korean diplomat said Mr Kim's "courageous decision" to meet would secure "peace and stability in the Korean peninsula".

World leaders welcomed the meeting. Such talks were unlikely a few months ago when the two leaders insulted each other. The one-time enemies could now be "frenemies". South Korea's president said it was "like a miracle". He said the talks were key for denuclearization. He added: "The…meeting will be…a historic milestone in achieving peace." China's president advised both sides to go ahead carefully and not damage relations.
