President Donald Trump says he expects a proposed meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to take place in May or early June.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un chaired a party meeting on Monday, at which he analyzed the future outcome of dialogue with the United States and the development of inter-Korean relations ahead of a summit with South Korea on April 27, state media reports said on Tuesday.

At the time, South Korean officials who made the announcement said the summit would take place "by May", which White House officials later said meant sometime in May.

"Hopefully it will be a relationship that will be much different than it has been for many, many years", Trump added.

Mr Kim's remarks on Monday did not specifically refer to a summit with Mr Trump. Trump said: "They've said so".

Trump has been extremely optimistic about the potential of the North Korea talks.

Questions remain about how North Korea would define denuclearization, which Washington sees as Pyongyang abandoning its nuclear weapons program.

Still, North Korea's government has not said anything publicly at all about a meeting with Trump, and the lack of known contact between Pyongyang and Washington about the meeting has fueled further speculation about the seriousness of Kim's offer.

Kim Jong Un as well as high ranking officials from the North have been engaging other countries in a flurry of diplomacy in recent weeks with the North Korean leader making a surprise visit to China last month, talking with President Xi Jinping.

Experts have urged the Government to engage in diplomacy with the North Korean regime to keep Kim from triggering an global nuclear conflict. Among them, Pyongyang demanded that the United States declare it will not launch American nuclear weapons from South Korean soil.

Detailed coverage of Monday's meeting - held two days before the annual session of North Korea's rubber-stamp parliament - is unusual and could indicate Kim's desire to project an image of a functioning political system to the outside world, an analyst said.
