Top N. Korean Official Heading To The US
 
A top North Korean official will head to the United States to begin negotiations on a new North Korea deal. According to reports, this official is the 'right-hand man' of North Korean President Kim Jong Un. 

According to Fox News:

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has dispatched his infamous right-hand man on a rare mission to the U.S. amid a diplomatic flurry aimed at salvaging a stalled peace summit.

Kim Yong Chol, Pyongyang's longtime spy chief and a vice chairman of the ruling Workers’ Party, was spotted at Beijing Capital International Airport, where he boarded a flight to New York after first meeting with Chinese officials. As the Hermit Kingdom's black operations chief, Kim has had a bloody hand in some of the rogue nation's most notorious attacks on South Korea and even U.S. cyber targets.

President Trump, who abruptly canceled the June 12 summit in Singapore last week after hostile rhetoric from North Korea, has since opened the door for putting the meeting back on track. In a Tuesday morning tweet, Trump confirmed Kim's pending visit.

“We have put a great team together for our talks with North Korea. Meetings are currently taking place concerning Summit, and more. Kim Young Chol, the Vice Chairman of North Korea, heading now to New York. Solid response to my letter, thank you!” Trump tweeted.

  As President Trump pointed out in his tweet, this is a great result of his letter last week that canceled the summit. History is being made before our eyes as North Korea continues to be willing to have negotiations with the United States.
