North Korea said Saturday that a proposal by US President Donald Trump to meet its leader Kim Jong-un in the Demilitarized Zone separating the two Koreas is a “very interesting suggestion,” South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported.

“We see it as a very interesting suggestion, but we have not received an official proposal in this regard,” the North’s Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) cited First Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son-hui as saying.

Trump earlier made the offer on Twitter, hours before he was due to visit Seoul from Osaka, Japan, where he had been attending a Group of 20 summit.
