Shortly after a South Korean delegation announced at the White House this evening that North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un was open to denuclearization and had invited President Donald Trump to a meeting, the president took to Twitter to highlight that major points.
Kim Jong Un talked about denuclearization with the South Korean Representatives, not just a freeze. Also, no missile testing by North Korea during this period of time. Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached. Meeting being planned!

As you can see in the tweet above, the president pointed out that Kim discussed giving up its nukes with the South Koreans while further noting that North Korea has agreed to refrain from missile tests for the time being. He also said that the meeting was being planned, but the sanctions against North Korea will remain in place for now.
At the announcement, the South Koreans said Trump had indicated the meeting would take place in May. The White House, however, released a statement after explaining that the time and place for the meeting had not been determined yet.
