At the meeting of party officials on Monday, Kim discussed the 'development of the north-south relations at present and the prospect of the DPRK-U.S. dialogue, ' the official KCNA news agency said, referring to the North by its official acronym, which stands for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
Trump has disparaged the North Korean leader through Twitter since entering the White House.
The main issue at the summit will be North Korea's nuclear programme.
While the plan of talks between the two enemies saw announced last month, Pyongyang had failed to officially confirm the talks were planning to take place until yesterday's press release.
The peril of North Korea's charm offensive
The North's official media has thus far made virtually no mention of the diplomatic gestures Kim has made towards Seoul and Washington since January, though it did report Kim's visit to Beijing last month to meet Chinese leader Xi Jinping. "Hopefully, it will be a relationship that's much different than it's been for many, many years".
The two countries have been holding secret meetings to prepare for the summit, trying to work out the logistics of time and meeting place.
Experts have urged the Government to engage in diplomacy with the North Korean regime to keep Kim from triggering an worldwide nuclear conflict.
Mr Trump has agreed to meet Mr Kim for a historic US-North Korean summit as early as next month. "They could even ask for, say, South Korea to get rid of all of its nuclear technology and nuclear reactors". It was also his first meeting with another head of state. Prior to that, Washington had relied mostly on South Korea's assurances of Kim's intentions. The Mongolian capital Ulaanbaatar has also been raised as a possible location, the sources said.
The move suggests that the communist nation's diplomats are trying to drum up global support for leader Kim Jong-un's vision for denuclearization.
