President Donald Trump has accepted an invitation by South Korea to meet directly with the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, following talks between South Korea and Pyongyang, South Korea's national security adviser said on Thursday.

North Korea also signaled that it would not test missiles anymore and would be willing to negotiate ending its nuclear weapons program, according to the national security adviser, Chung Eui-yong.

Kim Jong Un "stressed his eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible. President Trump appreciated the greeting and said he would meet Kim Jong Un by May to achieve permanent denuclearization," Chung said on Thursday evening outside the West Wing of the White House.
