Donald Trump will hold a second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un around the end of February, the White House has said after the US president met Pyongyang’s top nuclear negotiator on Friday.
The announcement came amid a diplomatic flurry in Washington surrounding the visit of North Korean envoy Kim Yong Chol and marked a rare sign of movement in a denuclearisation effort that has stalled since a landmark meeting between Trump and the North Korean leader in Singapore last year.
