Washington - South Korea’s national security director says President Donald Trump has decided he will meet with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un “by May.”

Chung Eui-yong spoke outside the White House after a day of briefings with senior U.S. officials, including Trump, on the recent inter-Korea talks. Chung says Trump said “he would meet Kim Jong Un by May to achieve permanent denuclearization” of the Korean peninsula.

Chung says Kim told the South Koreans he is “committed to denuclearization” and pledged that “North Korea will refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests.”

The meeting would be the first of its kind between a leader of North Korea and a sitting president of the United States. The two countries have been in a formal state of war since the Korean War in the 1950s.

Well well well, once again this great president has shown that his abilities and accomplishments are unprecedented and he has already surpassed what any other Pres. in history has done! There’s no doubt the only reason the little dictator has decided to play ball, is because he knows how determined Pres. Trump is to stop this dictator’s nuclear ambitions and that he will do whatever is necessary to stop him. Can you even picture the same happening under the appeaser, Obama?! It’s pretty funny seeing the faces of the Trump-hating commentators on CNN and MSNBC having to report this great accomplishment for Pres. Trump....MSNBC spent exactly one minute on it, and then immediately switched to the Mueller witch hunt and how they believe it will take the Pres. down. Gotta love their dishonesty and desperation! They can twist themselves into pretzels trying to make the president look bad, like the liberals on this site live for as well, but he will go down in history as the greatest president who was bold and courageous enough to tread where no president beforehand him did, and succeeded in ways even his biggest supporters couldn’t foresee, and more som he actually kept all his campaign promises! I’m more in awe of this president as each day goes by! G-d bless him.

Its a Great Idea. Jimmy Carter and Menachem Begin (lohavdil) meet with Sadat and since than Israel has Peace with Egypt. Trump has to get his friend Bibi to do the same with the Palis. No more bloodshed. Sholaym al Yisroel. and the world.

So what former President Obama could not do in eight years,President Trump can do it in just over a year!!!
It is simply incredible and great news to hear that the President will meet with the North Korean dictator for peace talks!!!
This world needs real peace,and if this long conflict with North Korea can come without war,it will be a happy scene!!!
And may it be a harbinger to us Jews everywhere that we will get our real peace soon,too!

BRAVO. Obama made Peace with Cuba. Jimmy Carter with Egypt. Trump with No Korea. Interesting? The more he belittles someone the more he really likes them. Ted Cruz, Kim Yong, maybe Hillary is next. She was a Great Secretary of State and he really needs some qualified and loyal people. With the Tariff on Iron and aluminium he is going back to his Liberal/Socialist roots. There is a reason the Russians get along so well with him.

NOBEL Peace Price for Trump. He can shake hands wit Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama. Can't wait for the picture: 3 living POTUS together holding the Nobel Peace Price. The funny part is that Carter is the most conservative of the three.

Sorry, you are wrong. Obama made Peace with Cuba. Its much more important to us than Korea. That's the Japanese So Koreans and Chinese problem not ours. Ask anyone around you if they have a clue where No Korea is? For sure not a swimming distance from US soil like Cuba.

"Trying to make the President looking bad" Actualy He will be looking great next to that Dictator they have sooooo much in common. They can discuss how to have a GREAT PARADE , The free press is the biggest enemy or who has bigger hand or whatever.

If he doesn't get the Nobel Peace Price for this he should start his own. TRUMP peace price. There are TRUMP

hotels,airline,stake,Vodka,shirts,neckties,university,models etc why not Peace Price. I hope he is mentsch enough to give one for Obama and Carter in exchange of their Nobel peace price.

The only reason nk dictator makes nice is cause Pres Trump is squeezing him where it hurts. Sanctions are preventing pudgy wudgy from strengthening his nuclear and missile arsenal and so he is looking to make a deal. Hope the WH dealmaker is wary and doesn’t fall for empty promises and sweet talk.

While it is indeed true that former President Obama made peace with Cuba,that was way too easy,and something that should have been done a long time ago if not for the fact that the Republicans were scared of what the Cuban voters would say.
But Obama was absolutely clueless what to do about the real threat in North Korea.Big smiles and beautiful smooth pleasantries meant nothing to the bully from North Korea.In his eight years,Obama got no where with his so called sanctions.And to top it off,the poor Jewish student got tortured there,and was delivered to die in his parents hands in the USA,and still Obama did nothing as he had no plans in how to engage with leaders that did not like him.
But President Trump could not care less if people like him or not.He is here to stop this North Korea from continuing to threaten us via nuclear warfare.And if it takes being undiplomatic,and throwing the fury,so be it.Leaders have done that before.
This indeed is a better accomplishment that Obama could only dream of having,as his sweet and so kind nature forbade him from ever being too mad at any nation,and that made anything he did against North Korea worthless.

Sorry mate, you are misinformed. The North Koreans have been begging to meet American presidents for the last 20 years. Kim is calling the shots here. Trump is reacting.

Wait a minute. We were not at war with Cuba. We had an economic sanctions plan against them. That is not the same thing as making peace with a country you fought and are still operating under only a cease fire. Also, Cuba had no leverage.

making peace with cuba is like the when the axis powers are deciding who to take over germany says I'll take Czechoslovakia Austria and Poland , japan says I'll take China and Korea and italy says I'll take Ethiopia that's what cuba is nothing of significance

And the cowards before Trump allowed him to gain the strength he did by not confronting him! Now he knows Trump,will take him down if he doesn’t give in and make a deal! No wonder he’s on his knees! As Donald trump promised us, he will restore respect and fear of the US in the eyes of the world, after Obama’s made such a laughingstock of this country!

All this chatter about Bibi making peace with the Palestinians are nonsense and naive. Its utter stupidity. I am shocked after your buddy Arafat yamch shimio won that peace prize you still cling on to the same stupidty as if you will ever have peace and it won't result in more yiddisha blit spilled like by the monster beast Arafat may he rot in hell. Its a very differnet dynamic than egypt
1) Egypt lost 2 wars and was in a corner. They saw they can't win
2) Egypt has its own sovereign state and interests aside from Israel. Plaestine doesn't. And they only thrive via fighting.
3)Giving back Sinai is not the same as giving back half of Jerusalem
4) They didn't live in our backyards like the plais do
5) They are secular.

Its a total.different dynamic. And I don't know how stupid you can be to compare the two or trust them after the Oslo accords and Arafat yimach shimo rejecting a peace deal with 97% pre 1967.
