North Korean state-run news confirmed Tuesday evening that Kim Jong Un has formally accepted President Trump’s invitation to visit Washington, DC; setting the stage for future peace talks surrounding his nuclear weapons program.
According to the Hill, the communist leader accepted Trump’s invitation to travel to the United States; another landmark summit between the two leaders still technically at war since 1953.
“The report came on the heels of the two leaders met for the first time in Singapore Tuesday for an historic summit on eliminating North Korea’s nuclear weapons. Mr. Trump had said he intended to invite Mr. Kim to visit the White House,” writes the Washington Times.

President Trump told reporters last week he “absolutely” planned to invite Kim Jong Un to the United States’ capital should their high-level negotiations “go well.”
“Kim Jong-un invited Trump to visit Pyongyang at a convenient time and Trump invited Kim Jong-un to visit the US,” KCNA reported.
