North Korea has invited US President Donald Trump to meet their leader Kim Jong Un, according to a senior US official and a former US senior official.
According to CNN, Trump told reporters Thursday that South Korea will make a "major announcement" concerning North Korea at 7 p.m. ET.
On Thursday a South Korean delegation came to the White House to brief officials on its most recent talks with North Korea -- the most significant talks between the two countries in more than a decade.
The South Korean officials visiting the White House on Thursday talked to Trump, a person familiar with the matter said.
They delivered a letter from Kim Jong Un to Trump inviting him to meet, according to a senior US official and a former US senior official.
The senior US official said North Korea has offered to suspend their nuclear missile testing alongside their invitation for talks. The official also said there are no plans to suspend the upcoming planned military exercises with South Korea.
It's not clear if the South Koreans spoke to the President before or after his surprise pop-in to the White House briefing room.
