"What changed was his posture in a fairly dramatic way", Tillerson said in Djibouti during a five-nation Africa tour.

United States allies in the region have given a cautious welcome to the development while vowing to keep up intense diplomatic and economic pressure on North Korea.

"President Trump appreciated the briefing and said he would meet Kim Jong-un by May to achieve permanent denuclearization", Chung, who headed up a South Korean delegation to Washington, said.

"It's expected to drop a little to 2.8 percent (year-on- year), which is still up there with the highest we've seen since the financial crisis, but if it can go above 3 percent, rate hike expectations could start to tick up again", said OANDA analyst Craig Erlam.

The North was open to "frank" talks with the United States on denuclearization and would suspend missile and nuclear tests while dialogue was under way, Chung said after returning from a meeting in Pyongyang.

USA -based experts say North Korea appeared to show last November that it has succeeded in developing a missile capable of delivering a nuclear weapon anywhere in the United States.

Sanders did not define the concrete steps or suggest how they might be verified, but said the North had to "follow through on the promises they've made" before Trump will participate in a summit that South Korean officials said would probably take place at the end of May.

"A meeting is being planned", Trump said on Twitter on Friday after accepting an invitation to meet from Kim.

South Korean officials who announced Mr. Trump had accepted the request for direct talks said the summit would take place before May.




"We believe Trump's readiness to accept Kim Jong Un's invitation to a summit meeting by May also represents a positive development", Kocijancic told reporters, saying the European Union looked forward to the outcome of the talks.

January 1, 2018: Kim says in his New Year's address that he has a nuclear button on his desk, but also calls for improved relations with South Korea and suggests sending a delegation to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Merkel said it showed that "a united global stance, including sanctions, certainly offers a glimmer of hope".

"Make love, not war" has always been Rodman's motto and recently he praised Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un for their plans to meet at a diplomatic summit.

"We have always been clear that we want Kim Jong Un to change path and put the welfare of his people ahead of the illegal pursuit of nuclear weapons", May's spokesman said.

August 9: Trump says North Korea had best not make more threats or "they will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen".

Russia: Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov hailed the proposed meeting as "a step in the right direction".

In the past North Korea has indicated that security guarantees mean the departure of USA forces from the Korean peninsula and the end of a mutual defense treaty with the South.
