The Trump administration said it would maintain "maximum pressure" on North Korea to end its nuclear program ahead of Trump's meeting with the country's leader.
President Trump said Thursday night that sanctions on North Korea would remain in place until an agreement is reached for Pyongyang to abandon its nuclear ambitions.
Trump tweeted that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had discussed denuclearization with South Korean officials and that the North would not conduct missile tests during talks.
"Great progress being made but sanctions will remain until an agreement is reached. Meeting being planned!" Trump tweeted.
