So where should President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un meet up for the first face-to-face talks between a US president and North Korean leader?

In a statement sent to the Washington Post, North Korea's United Nations ambassador said the "courageous decision" of Mr Kim would help secure "peace and stabilityin the Korean peninsula and the East Asia region".

During the call, Trump expressed hope that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un might choose a "brighter path" for North Koreas future.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said, "We're not going to let this meeting take place unless we see concrete actions" by North Korea.

It is welcome news that two of the world's most bombastic leaders will sit down to talk seriously about one of the globe's most perilous standoffs.

"This was an oral message conveyed by North Koreans to the South Koreans", said Eric Edelman, who served as undersecretary of defense for policy in the George W. Bush administration.

Mr Trump's immediate positive response to Mr Kim's invitation to talk had taken not only senior United States officials by surprise, but also the South Korean envoys who delivered it, according to reports. "They've become substantially more sophisticated over the years", said Gallucci, who last met them in Kuala Lumpur at the end of 2016. An exact time and place has yet to be determined.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's sudden overtures to Washington are making headlines around the world.

In reality, Trump simply told "rocket man" what President John F. Kennedy told the Russians during the Cuban Missile Crisis: U.S. retaliation for a nuclear strike by North Korea on American territory or that of its allies would result in that country's complete and utter annihilation.

On Tuesday, South Korean delegation announced that North Korean side and its leader Kim Jong-un confirmed commitment to the demilitarization of the Korean Peninsula during the meeting in Pyongyang.

"Another major concern were a new conflict to break out on the Korean Peninsula would be how to deal with possible chemical or nuclear weapon attacks on USA military personnel", Fazal said.

Instead, Kim only promised to stop nuclear and ballistic missile testing and said he accepted the right of the United States and South Korea to move forward with joint military exercises later this year. Trump asked Chung about a recent meeting with the North Korean dictator. India officially welcomed the development and said it supported peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula.

On Friday, March 9, Trump was open to meeting with Kim, in conditions that the North Korean leader would not conduct missile testing while the possible talks begin. Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached.

"I wish we could give Trump a card to take with him for the meeting that would say 'Remember that the person across the table murdered Otto Warmbier.' This is a killer", said one George W. Bush administration official. The North has also, according to the US, repeatedly cheated on past nuclear deals.
