North Korea is willing to talk to the United States about denuclearization, a senior U.S. official said Sunday.
These are the first tangible signs that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is still willing to meet with President Donald Trump since the North first proposed the summit last month.
Trump has said he wants to meet with Kim before the end of May. Details on the talks are still unclear, including the exact agenda and place.
But U.S. officials have said there have been secret contacts between Washington and Pyongyang.
Trump has consistently called for the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
In the past, North Korea pledged to freeze its nuclear program in exchange for food aid and easing economic sanctions. Those promises were always broken.
