North Korea confirms it is willing to talk denuclearisation

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un said he's Prepared to Speak together with President Trump about eliminating North Korea's nuclear weapons as a Piece of a denuclearization round the Korean Peninsula, a Trump administration official confirmed to Fox News on Sunday.

According to CNN, the talks are being led by Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) director Mike Pompeo, using intelligence back channels, and his team has met North Korean officials in a third country. Officials said the current target is late May or even June.

North Korea has confirmed directly to the Trump administration that it is willing to negotiate with the United States over potential denuclearisation, administration officials said.

United States and North Korean officials have held secret contacts recently in which Pyongyang directly confirmed its willingness to hold the unprecedented summit, the official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity. "If there were such talks, we think it's a positive move".




US President Donald Trump said that he was looking forward to meeting Kim Jong Un, with the North Korean leader confirming a willingness to maintain a dialogue with Washington.

In a separate report, a USA think-tank says North Korea may have started testing a new reactor.

Analysts said the efforts show that the U.S. intelligence agencies are taking the lead for summit preparations, but expressed scepticism whether such moves were headed by the North's Reconnaissance General Bureau, which deals with clandestine operations against South Korea. The representatives of the US and North Korea have already met in a third country.

China and Russian Federation are both permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, which has imposed sanctions on North Korea in a bid to force negotiations with Pyongyang. South Korean President Moon Jae-in plans to meet with Kim at the end of April in the demilitarised zone between the North and South. "What we will see next is the exchanges of presidential envoys between the U.S. and North Korea".
