Donald Trump to meet Kim Jong-un again in February

US President Donald Trump will meet North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un a second time, the White House says.

The pair will have a second summit in late February, with the venue yet to be revealed.

The announcement came after Mr Trump met with North Korean official Kim Yong-chol, who is leading the repressive nation's denuclearisation talks, in the Oval Office in Washington DC.

"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," said spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

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

Mr Trump and Mr Kim first met in June last year.

Little progress has been made on denuclearising the Korean peninsula since then, with international watchdogs saying North Korea is still developing nuclear weapons and the Pentagon this week saying the Kim regime remains an "extraordinary threat".
