Trump Boasts of 'Very Good Relationship' With North Korean Leader

Trump Boasts of 'Very Good Relationship' With North Korean Leader

He added that the North Koreans reaffirmed their country's commitment to achieving nuclear parity with the USA, insisting it does so to preserve their country's survival.

The North Koreans also expressed their surprise over the popular opinion in South Korea that U.S. President Donald Trump would never start a war in Korea and that the tension, crisis-like atmosphere and belligerent rhetoric are all posturing, according to Vorontsov.

"I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un", Mr. Trump said in the Thursday interview. "I could give you 20 examples".

Asked whether he has spoken with the North Korean leader, Trump told the newspaper: "I don't want to comment on it". "I'm not saying I have or haven't", he said.

The White House said Wednesday that Trump was open to the USA holding talks with North Korea "under the right circumstances", after South Korean President Moon Jae-In signaled a willingness to sit down with Kim. "I just don't want to comment".

The Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang next month have always been overshadowed by geopolitical tensions, with the North repeatedly test-firing missiles it says are capable of reaching the U.S. mainland, and detonating its most powerful nuclear device to date.

Putin reiterated that dialogue with North Korea was warranted, and said Kim now wanted to calm the situation. "And then all of the sudden somebody's my best friend".

The U.S. -based Web site 38 North reports that significant tunneling excavation is under way at North Korea's Punggye-ri nuclear test site, suggesting the area is being prepared for a future nuclear test. Trump also again indicated he's open to direct US talks with North Korea under the right circumstances.
