(CNN)The release of three US nationals currently detained in North Korea is “imminent,” according to an official with knowledge of the ongoing negotiations.
A source at the White House National Security Council said if North Korea were to release the trio, it would be viewed it as a good will gesture ahead of the planned summit with Kim Jong Un.
“Their safety and well-being will factor into future interactions between the United States and North Korean government,” the source said.
