North Korea's Evoy Kim Yong Chol has arrived at the White House to deliver a letter from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to US President Donald Trump.

Kim Yong Chol was once blacklisted by the United States for his role in his country's military establishment.

The senior Korean official had been in New York City for meetings with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo about preparations for a summit between Trump and Kim.

Last week, Trump abruptly pulled out from his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, scheduled to take place on June 12 in Singapore, citing hostile comments made by Pyongyang. At the same time, however, Trump did stress that he was looking forward to meeting with Kim "some day."

Nevertheless, Washington and Pyongyang have continued making preparations for the historic summit, which might be focused on denuclearization as well as bringing peace to the Korean Peninsula.
