National Defense building in Seoul

Among the unverified reports so far is that Kim hopes to sign a peace treaty with Trump - a long-held goal of the North Korean regime.

The statement was issued two days after Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, told reporters that "the president will not have the meeting without seeing concrete steps and concrete actions take place by North..."

"The offer was made and we'€™ve accepted", she said.

Some US officials and experts worry North Korea could buy time to build up and refine its nuclear arsenal if it drags out talks with Washington.

"I am delighted that South Korea's efforts have made great progress in the overall Korean Peninsula situation and that close dialogue between NK and the U.S. has been achieved".

The move abruptly reversed decades of USA policy aimed at preventing North Korea from developing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.
