Still, some lawmakers and foreign policy experts voiced skepticism about the wisdom of agreeing to a summit without preparations by lower-level officials, particularly given the lack of trust between the two sides.

"We look forward to the denuclearization of North Korea". I understand that if the past is an indication of the future, North Korea will be all talk and no action. During those talks, a South Korean official told a media briefing that denuclearisation "could be among the agenda items for talks between North Korea and the US".

There's no word on who will attend the meeting, other than the two leaders.

No sitting USA president has met a North Korean leader, let alone one who has called the commander-in-chief a "mentally deranged dotard".

South Korean President Moon has been pushing hard for a rapprochement with Pyongyang since he came into office in 2017. A senior United States official later said it could happen "in a matter of a couple of months, with the exact timing and place still to be determined".

As for denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, the North has said before that this would require more than Pyongyang giving up its atomic weapons.

Responding to that announcement, President Trump appeared cautiously optimistic and tweeted that the agreement could mean "progress" or "false hope". "Meeting being planned!" he wrote.

A South Korean presidential official said he was not aware of any physical letter.

Tensions over North Korea rose to their highest in years in 2017, and the Trump administration has warned that all options are on the table, including military ones, in dealing with Pyongyang, which has pursued its weapons programs in defiance of ever tougher United Nations sanctions. Either North Korea accused the US of failing to deliver on its promises, or American officials were unhappy with their ability to verify that Pyongyang was telling the truth.

"They have long said that 'if the president would engage directly, then who knows what's possible?'" Russel said.

"And it's not inconsistent with their strategy of seeking to be treated like the Soviet Union, seeking to be accepted as a nuclear peer". Lindsey Graham warned Kim that "the worst possible thing you can do is meet with President Trump in person and try to play him. That would make me want to talk I think".

It marks a dramatic shift in Trump's stance toward North Korea.

But while the meeting between the U.S. and North Korea is a victory for Moon, some South Koreans will be more skeptical, said Duyeon Kim, visiting senior fellow at the Korean Peninsula Future Forum.

The North was open to "frank" talks with the United States on denuclearization and would suspend missile and nuclear tests while dialogue was under way, Chung said after returning from a meeting in Pyongyang.

What has North Korea said?

Trump had previously said he was willing to meet Kim under the right circumstances but had indicated the time was not right for such talks.

The Trump presidency typically dominates a news cycle. Kim has pilloried Trump as "senile" and a "dotard".

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un watches a basketball game with Dennis Rodman at Pyongyang Indoor Stadium in this undated photo released in January 2014. For months the administration gave mixed messages about just what "preconditions" - if any - needed to be met to merit talks.

But others say Kim is feeling more confident than ever.

By the "great courageous decision of our Supreme Leader, we can take the new aspect to secure the peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula and the East Asia region", Pak Song Il wrote in an email to The Washington Post. A peace treaty between Pyongyang and Washington is also an end to the security alliance between Seoul and Washington. Relations between the two Koreas begun to improve in the weeks leading up to the Winter Olympics held in the South.

Let's keep in mind that North Korea has benefited significantly from past talks with the U.S. The negotiating table has always been a good place for the North Koreans to be. -South Korea military drills "must continue".

The breakthrough brings the North Korean regime close to its long-desired aim of recognition on the worldwide stage, and offers Trump the tantalizing prospect of a historic diplomatic victory, although the consequences of such a high-stakes gamble remain hard to predict.

"This is literally how the North Korean film "The Country I Saw" ends", he wrote on Twitter.
