President Trump shocked the world Thursday evening; announcing a surprise summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un after the brutal despot pledged to halt his weapons program and meet with an American delegation to discuss full denuclearization.

The surprise announcement came after days of high-level meetings between North and South Korean officials, and a firm pledge from Kim to “freeze” his weapons programs ahead of potential talks with US officials.

“President Trump appreciated the briefing and said he would meet Kim Jong-un by May to achieve permanent denuclearization,” said South Korea’s National Security Advisor, adding North Korea will “refrain from any further nuclear or missile tests.”

The President hailed the meeting on social media shortly after the announcement, saying “great progress being made” and “meeting being planned!”

“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!” he tweeted.

Should the summit take place, it would be the first time the leaders of North Korea and the United States meet face to face.
