The Hill reports: North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has accepted President Trump’s invitation to visit Washington, D.C., North Korea’s Korean Central News Agency reported this evening.
The news comes after the two leaders met for a historic summit in Singapore earlier Tuesday, signing a document committing the U.S. to unspecified “security guarantees” in exchange for a denuclearized Korean Peninsula.
Trump said during the trip that he “absolutely” planned on inviting Kim to the White House. The president also said that Kim had accepted the invitation “at the appropriate time, a little bit further down the road.”
“That will be a day that I very much look forward to at the appropriate time,” the president said.
Kim’s visit to Washington could be the second of “many” meetings between the two leaders, Trump said.
