Historic North Korea summit will take place June 12, Trump says

WASHINGTON (AP) - An aide to Kim Jong Un visited the White House Friday, becoming the highest-ranking North Korean official to visit in 18 years.

Kim Yong Chol was greeted Friday by White House chief of staff John Kelly, who brought him inside the White House to meet President Donald Trump.

Kim presented Trump with a letter from Kim Jong Un, the North Korean dictator.

The letter comes as the two countries were working to revive a Trump-Kim summit on June 12 in Singapore.

Trump later emerged from the White House to announce the June 12 summit was back on.

Kim Yong Chol is the most senior North Korean visitor to the United States since Vice Marshal Jo Myong Rok visited Washington in 2000 to meet President Bill Clinton.
