North Korea has confirmed directly to the Trump administration that it is willing to negotiate with the United States over potential denuclearisation, administration officials said.

North and South Korea have agreed to hold their first summit in more than a decade on April 27, while Trump has said he would meet Kim by the end of May.

The talks were laying the groundwork for a meeting between Pompeo and his North Korea counterpart, the head of the Reconnaissance General Bureau, in advance of the leaders' summit.

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

No specifics have yet emerged concerning the date or venue of the proposed summit.

Chung Eui-yong, South Korea's national security director, announced last month outside the White House that US-North Korea talks were possible. -North Korea relationship, the administration's maximum-pressure campaign continues and that sanctions "must be maintained at all cost".

The back-channel talks are the latest move in a flurry of diplomatic activity aimed at resolving the nuclear crisis on the Korean peninsula. But Pyongyang has affirmed Kim's willingness to put the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula on the table, the sources said.

As recently as this weekend, Trump told associates he was looking forward to the summit, which he agreed to on the spot when presented the invitation from Kim.

North Korea was "suffocating" under worldwide sanctions, Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said on Thursday, adding, "They need an out".

Nonpublic discussion of Trump's meeting with Kim Jong-Un is being conducted "at full pelt".

But the fact that the US has confirmed North Korea's willingness to even discuss denuclearization is a positive step toward the Trump-Kim meeting actually taking place, and suggests they are communicating directly in preparation for it.

South Korea had contended that Kim was willing to do so and had also vowed to suspend nuclear and missile tests.
