It was the first time Kim is known to have acknowledged the planned meeting with Trump, according to South Korean news agency Yonhap.

Pompeo was in the North to discuss arrangements for the high-stakes summit, expected within weeks, as well as to secure the release of three Americans detained in North Korea.

Kim said he had granted "amnesty" to the three men "who have been detained in the DPRK for their anti-DPRK hostilities", according to KCNA.

The move is seen as a diplomatic victory for Washington and removes the last major obstacle to the summit between the Cold War foes.
