The White House has confirmed news that stunned Korea-watchers late Thursday: President Trump is planning to meet Kim Jong Un before the end of May, in a location yet to be determined. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Friday that the meeting was made possible by a "dramatic" change in posture from the North Korean leader, the AP reports. He said Trump decided to accept the invitation after Kim displayed a surprisingly "forward-leaning" attitude in talks with a South Korean delegation. Tillerson said it will take "some weeks" to arrange a date for the meeting. In other coverage:
- Location TBD. No location for the meeting has been set, though Mar-a-Lago is probably a long shot, the Guardian reports. Experts say that while there's a chance Kim could visit Washington or Trump could visit Pyongyang, more neutral potential venues include China, South Korea, or the DMZ.
