The U.S. vowed Friday there would be no let-up of pressure on North Korea until it takes concrete steps to end its nuclear program after President Donald Trump agreed to meet Kim Jong Un in a stunning diplomatic gamble. A day after the bombshell announcement that the U.S. and North Korean leaders would meet before the end of May, Trump's Vice President Mike Pence said that Washington's efforts to isolate Kim had been vindicated. Chinese President Xi Jinping urged the two leaders to begin talks as "soon as possible" and praised Trump's "positive aspiration" during a phone call with his U.S. counterpart, according to state media.Trump has previously ridiculed Kim as "Little Rocket Man," slapping wideranging bilateral sanctions on the Pyongyang regime and also leading a drive for international sanctions through the U.N.Standing in front of the White House Thursday night, Moon's National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong announced the first ever meeting between a U.S. president and a North Korean leader would take place by May.
