US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said it would take “some weeks” to set up a meeting, due to take place by May.

Mr Trump hailed “great progress” but said sanctions would remain in place.

South Korean envoys had earlier briefed Mr Trump on the meeting they had this week with Mr Kim, saying he was now “committed to denuclearisation”.

South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in said the news of the Kim-Trump meeting had come “like a miracle”.

“If President Trump and Chairman Kim meet following an inter-Korean summit, complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula will be put on the right track in earnest,” he said.
