Donald Trump: North Korea wants meeting as soon as possible

US President Donald Trump has said North Korea wants to hold a high-stakes meeting "as soon as possible" as he praised Kim Jong Un as "very open" and "very honourable".

Mr Trump was addressing his upcoming plans to meet with the North Korean leader during his discussions at the White House with French President Emmanuel Macron.

Mr Trump's praise for the North Korean dictator stands in stark contrast to his past comments in which he referred to Mr Kim as "Little Rocket Man".

The Trump-Kim meeting is expected in May or June.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in is meeting with Mr Kim on Friday to kick off a new round of high-stakes nuclear diplomacy with Pyongyang.
