SEOUL, South Korea (AP) – The European Union is welcoming U.S. President Donald Trump’s readiness to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a “positive development.”
    
EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, in a statement Friday, also welcomed another summit planned for April between Kim and South Korea’s president.
    
She said the EU is looking forward to the outcome of the talks and that the bloc supports all efforts to obtain “the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”
    
South Korea’s national security director announced on Thursday that Trump had agreed to a proposal by Kim to meet by May to discuss the denuclearization of the peninsula.
