There’s been a major breakthrough in diplomatic relations and the probability of nuclear war between the United States and North Korea appears to have de-escalated. South Korea’s national security director says US President Donald Trump will meet face-to-face with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, ”by May.” The White House says the meeting will be held ”at a place and time to be determined.” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders released a statement after the South Korean official broke the stunning news. She says the US looks ”forward to the denuclearization of North Korea,” but all sanctions will remain in place in the meantime. President Trump was heavily criticized for his harsh rhetoric which included terms like “fire and fury” and “Rocketman”. For now, it appears North Korea blinked first.

Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze. Also, no missile testing by North Korea during this period of time. Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached. Meeting being planned!
