The White House makes preparations for the meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. This was mentioned on Trump's Twitter.
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!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 9 марта 2018 г.
Earlier, Michael Pence, the Vice President of the U.S. said that while the U.S. pressure on North Korea remains, Washington is still open to talks wih Kim's administration. Asked which steps Pyongyang needs to take to have the sanctions lifted, Pence answered it is exactly why the negotiations are necessary - to find out. He added that the restrictions will remain in place while North Korea keeps up to its nuclear and missile programs.
