North Korea 'ready to discuss' denuclearisation programme with US



North Korea has promised the US it is ready to discuss the future of its nuclear arsenal when the two nations' leaders meet, US officials say.

 
Preparations for the summit have included secret, direct talks with North Korea, unnamed Trump administration sources said.


US and North Korean intelligence officials are said to have spoken many times, and met in a third country.


The unprecedented summit is slated to happen in May.


It will be the first time a sitting US president has met the leader of North Korea.


North Korea has already told South Korea it was prepared to address denuclearisation, but this is the first time assurances have been given to Washington directly, the US officials claimed.


Details of the summit, including the timing and location, remain unclear.
