WASHINGTON:President Trump has tweeted that a deal with North Korea is "Very Much in the Making", a day after revealing he had agreed to meet its leader Kim Jong-Un.
North Korea has yet to make a statement.
Trump's move is a sharp departure from 60 years of largely arms-length U.S. Diplomacy when it comes to North Korea , not to mention his own previous bellicose rhetoric against Pyongyang.
It also represents another instance in which the republican trump, a businessman who promised to shake up Washington, took a completely different direction than his democratic predecessor.
White house officials said that when South Korean national security adviser Chung Eui-Yong relayed Kim's invitation in an oval office meeting last Thursday, Trump readily agreed, feeling that U.S.-led sanctions were weakening North Korea . APP/AFP
