North Korea has told the USA for the first time that it is prepared to discuss the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula when North Korean leader Kim Jong-un meets President Donald Trump, a US official said on Sunday.
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un chaired a party meeting on Monday, at which he analyzed the future outcome of dialogue with the United States and the development of inter-Korean relations ahead of a summit with South Korea on April 27, state media reports said on Tuesday.
Lavrov said, however, that there was no word on a possible meeting between President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Indeed, at the end of November, the last time it tested a missile, North Korea declared it had built a new intercontinental ballistic missile "tipped with super-large heavy warhead" that marked "the completion of the rocket weaponry system development".
Speaking at the White House on Monday, Mr Trump expressed hope that a deal to get Pyongyang to denuclearise might be made.
Meanwhile, unnamed US officials have said for the first time that North Korea told them in behind-the-scenes contacts it is willing to talk about dismantling its nuclear program.

Both Facebook and Tinder confirmed the problem, and Facebook confirmed it was connected to the increased privacy restrictions. The situation is pretty interesting, as other dating apps that are connected with Facebook didn't pose any log in trouble.
USA media reported that U.S. and North Korean intelligence officials have spoken several times with a focus on nailing down a location for the summit.
"Now, when we meet with North Korea, it will be very interesting for the whole world", said trump. But U.S. officials have said there have been secret contacts between Washington and Pyongyang. He did not clarify where the session might take place. Till then Washington was yet to hear directly from Pyongyang on the invitation extended by Kim via South Korean intermediaries.
Either way, "denuclearization", in the sense that Kim means it, does not equate to what the United States has long sought on the Peninsula: the complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization of North Korea.
Trump said Monday that "Hopefully it will be a relationship that's much different than it has been for many, many years". Till three weeks ago, dilemma lingered over the first-ever meeting between Trump and Kim.
No specifics have yet emerged concerning the date or venue, with a 3rd country such as Mongolia or Sweden reportedly under consideration to host the talks.
