Kim Jong-un receives 'letter of excellent content' from Trump

Kim Jong-un receives 'letter of excellent content' from Trump

Earlier North Korea's state-run news agency KCNA said Kim had described the letter as being "of excellent content" but did not disclose any details about Trump's message.

Donald Trump appeared to threaten a journalist with jail time after they took a photograph of a letter he said had been sent to him by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

South Korea's Office of the President "evaluates the exchanges of personal letters between the leaders of the United States and North Korea positively from the perspective of continuing the momentum of the US-North Korea talks", the office said in a statement.

The United States is continuing to push North Korea to abandon its nuclear arms before global sanctions are lifted.

Trump leaves for Asia later this week for the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan, and meetings with South Korean President Moon Jae-in Seoul.

Trump said he didn't ultimately limit the investigation, but when the reporter pressed by noting that Lewandowski testified under threat of prison time about the apparent effort to do so, Trump snapped.

Pyongyang pulled out all the stops to welcome Mr Xi, the first Chinese president to visit in 14 years - a period in which North Korea has carried out five nuclear tests and launched missiles capable of reaching the entire U.S. mainland.

Xi Jinping said he hoped to strengthen ties between the two nations.

Last October, Mr Trump said he and Mr Kim fell "in love" after exchanging "beautiful" letters.

China's role as North Korea's vital trading partner and sole security backer gives Xi leverage in his talks with Trump.

The interview took web page on the White Dwelling on Monday, two days forward of Mr Trump travelled to Florida to formally originate his 2020 re-election campaign.

Less than a month before the Singapore summit, Trump wrote to Kim to call it off, telling the North's leader not to "hesitate to call me or write".

HRW believes that Trump should do more to point out human rights abuses in North Korea and not try to appease the North Korean leader.

The U.S., under Trump's administration, ranks forty eight out of 180 worldwide locations for press freedom, per Reporters With out Borders.

North Korea is seeking a step-by-step approach in which moves towards denuclearisation are matched by concessions from the United States, notably a relaxation of the sanctions.

Fears of increased hostilities increased last month, as North Korea launched a series of weapons tests, which included the first firing of short-range ballistic missiles since 2017.

Since then, Trump received at least two letters from Kim.
