North Korea has said it is willing to discuss de-nuclearisation with the USA, a Trump administration official said on Sunday, increasing the chances of an unprecedented summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and the USA president.

The current target is late May or June, CNN quoted officials as saying.

CNN reports that Ulaanbaatar, the capital of Mongolia, is also being considered as a potential meeting place.

American and North Korean intelligence officials have spoken several times and have even met in a third country, with a focus on nailing down a location for the talks.

Michael Pompeo, the U.S. Secretary of State, and the team from the Central Intelligence Agency are dealing with the preparations to the summit.

"The U.S. has confirmed that Kim Jong Un is willing to discuss the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula‎", said a second U.S. official. "If there were such talks, we think it's a positive move".

Rep. Farenthold resigns amid sexual harassment backlash
The allegations against Farenthold first surfaced in 2014, when he was sued by his former communications director, Lauren Greene. A businessman and self-described radio sidekick who was new to politics, Farenthold upset long-serving Democratic U.S.

CNN reported that North Korea wants to have the meeting in its capital, Pyongyang, and that preparations are under way for a possible meeting between Pompeo and the head of the Reconnaissance General Bureau, North Korea's intelligence agency.

Although Trump tweeted on March 28 he was looking forward to the meeting, expressing, "there's just a good chance that Kim Jong Un will perform what is ideal for his people and also for humanity", many economists also have expressed doubt about the close program's aims.

South Korea had conveyed a message from Kim indicating his willingness to pause his nuclear program during talks, but the US had not previously confirmed Kim's intentions directly from North Korea.

In a separate report, a USA think-tank says North Korea may have started testing a new reactor.

"It's likely that Kim Jongun comes with an alternate significance in mind", Abraham Denmark, a former senior US defense official claimed, noting a possible denuclearization deal seems to be contingent on the USA generating the most suitable conditions. Once a location is agreed upon the officials said that the date will be set and the agenda discussed in greater detail.
