President Trump and North Korean Leader Kim to hold Historic Meeting.

PRESIDENT Donald Trump has agreed to a historic meeting with Kim Jong Un in a stunning development in America's high-stakes nuclear stand off with North Korea.

Standing in front of the White House, South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong announced the first ever meeting between US president and a North Korean Leader, which he said would take place by end of May.

Chung had recently returned from Pyongyang, where he had met Kim who, he said, expressed his eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible.

Trump hailed ''great progress'' in the push to persuade Pyongyang to end its nuclear program.

''Meeting being planned!'' he tweeted.

''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.''

News of the summit, which South Korean President Moon Jae-in said was  ''like a miracle'' , is the latest step in a quickening detente. [Agencies]
