US President Donald Trump set to hold new summit with North Korea's Kim Jong-un

United States President Donald Trump will hold a second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un around the end of February but will maintain sanctions on Pyongyang, the White House has said.

The announcement came amid a diplomatic flurry in Washington surrounding the visit of Kim Yong-chol, a hardline former spy chief, and marked a rare sign of movement in a denuclearisation effort that has stalled since a landmark meeting between Mr Trump and the North Korean leader in Singapore last year.

"President Donald J. Trump met with Kim Yong-chol for an hour-and-a-half, to discuss denuclearisation and a second summit, which will take place near the end of February," White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said.

"The President looks forward to meeting with Chairman Kim at a place to be announced at a later date."

Ms Sanders insisted, however, that while progress was being made, the United States "is going to continue to keep pressure and sanctions on North Korea."
