US President Donald Trump said he was prepared to meet North Korea'sKim Jong Un in what would be the first face-to-face encounter between the countries' leaders and could mark a breakthrough in a stand-off over the North's nuclear weapons.
Kim Jong Un's decision to invite Donald Trump to a historic summit is evidence that the American leader's efforts to isolate his North Korean counterpart are bearing fruit, US Vice President Mike Pence said today. A senior administration official said days earlier North Korea would need to take "concrete steps" toward denuclearization before the U.S. would agree to talks. "And whether the president will stay the course in these negotiations, I don't know, but I will be supportive and hopeful that he is trying to find a political or a diplomatic solution", says Gillibrand.

Sanders claimed those pledges were made with "zero concessions" from the U.S.
