Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — The White House put conditions Friday on any meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, one day after saying the president had accepted Kim’s invitation for a high-stakes summit.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said, “We’re not going to let this meeting take place unless we see concrete actions” by North Korea.

“Let’s be clear: the United States has made zero concessions,” Sanders said.

Asked whether the meeting might not take place “by May” as South Korea’s national security adviser said Thursday, Sanders responded, “We haven’t set a time or a location.”

“We have to see concrete and verifiable actions take place,” Sanders emphasized. “The president will not have the meeting without seeing concrete actions.”
