Kim Jong-un diskuterte USA-dialog med partiledelsen 

Nord-Koreas leder Kim Jong-un diskuterte tirsdag de mulige samtalene med USA på et partimøte, ifølge det nordkoreanske nyhetsbyrået KCNA.

Dette er første gang dialogen med USA blir omtalt offentlig i Nord-Korea. De to landene har kommet langt i planleggingen av et møte mellom Kim og USAs president Donald Trump i mai eller juni.

På møtet med partimedlemmer, ga Kim en rapport om «utviklingen i den nylige situasjonen på Koreahalvøya», ifølge KCNA.

– Kim ga en grundig analyse og vurdering av retningen på den nåværende utviklingen i nord-sør-forholdet og muligheten for en dialog mellom Nord-Korea og USA, opplyser nyhetsbyrået.
