According to The Telegraph News, former North Korean spy chief and senior official Kim Yong Chol is heading to the US for high level talks aimed at reviving the prospects of a summit in Singapore between Kim Jong-un and President Donald Trump.
Kim Yong Chol, one of the most influential North Koreans outside of the Kim dynasty, had been closely involved with talks with South Korea. He is the most senior North Korean official to set foot in the US since 2000, in a further indication that preparations for the historic summit, initially planned for June 12, are moving ahead.
His trip comes just days after President Trump cancelled the one-on-one meeting with Kim Jong-un in a letter citing North Korea’s hostility.
But after a conciliatory response from Pyongyang on Friday and an impromptu meeting on Saturday between the North Korean leader and Moon Jae-in, the South Korean president, where Kim expressed his commitment to progress on denuclearisation, the talks now seem to be on again.
President Trump announced General Kim’s visit in a tweet on Tuesday, welcoming progress.
