President Donald Trump will meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un by May, South Korea's national security adviser Chung Eui-Yong announced late Thursday. A South Korean delegation met with Trump at the White House on Thursday with Kim's invitation to meet, and an offer to suspend nuclear and ballistic missile tests. "I told President Trump that in our meeting, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un said he's committed to denuclearization," Chung said in a televised statement. Stocks in Japan and South Korea immediately gained following the announcement.
