"We should as Christians be praying about this meeting".

A statement from White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the place and time of the meeting was still to be determined.

The White House said the historic diplomatic meeting between the powerful leaders would take place, but wouldn't reveal when or where.

"I told President Trump that in our meeting, the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, said he is committed to denuclearisation", Chung said.

The latest round of sanctions to be imposed on North Korea by the U.S. was announced on Wednesday, when the State Department revealed punitive measures in response to its finding that Pyongyang was behind the nerve agent assassination of Mr Kim's half-brother. "In the meantime, all sanctions and maximum pressure must remain".

"That is a decision the president took himself. Also, no missile testing by North Korea (DPRK) during this period of time", the tweet said.

North Korea is yet to issue an official comment on the week's development.

"We don't know all the details yet, but because North Korea is an economically-starved country, the invitation is BYO-everything", the host added.

"In terms of direct talks we're a long way from negotiations, we just need to be very clear-eyed and realistic about it", Tillerson had said in the Ethiopian capital of Addis Ababa on Thursday.

On Thursday, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi urged the United States and the DPRK to hold talks sooner rather than later.

"Just an extraordinary evening, and of course opening the door to the big question: If President Trump can truly solve this problem, that would be going down as a great president, and there's no way around that", Erin Burnett said on her show OutFront.

He added: "Their relations with China are not good".

Kim will likely want to keep some nukes as a deterrent, but that might be hard for Trump to tolerate when he spent so much time harshly criticizing his predecessor, Barack Obama, for allegedly standing by and watching as North Korea became a nuclear threat.
