Trump tweets friendly letter from Kim Jong Un

Trump tweets friendly letter from Kim Jong Un

In his tweet Thursday afternoon, the president suggested the letter was a sign trust is developing between him and Kim, after their historic summit on June 12.

Kim continued by expressing confidence that "the strong will, honest efforts and unique approach" to bring about a new future between the USA and North Korea would "come to fruition".

While visiting Pyongyang last week, Mr Pompeo said that a Pentagon team would meet with the North's officials in or around Panmunjon - the truce village on the border between North and South Korea.

The US accusation of a sanctions breach comes as Washington engages with North Korea in a bid to negotiate denuclearising the Asian country.

After all, the North's endgame is to achieve de facto acceptance by the United States as a nuclear-weapons state, and to conduct arms-control negotiations that reduce tensions on the peninsula (but not denuclearization).

Trump wrote: 'A very nice note from Chairman Kim of North Korea.

In the letter Trump released on Thursday, Kim repeatedly referred to the U.S. president as "Your Excellency".

"Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won't be around much longer!" The two countries have resisted toughening sanctions on North Korea.

"Most important, instead of any hint of criticism of President Trump, the statement ends on a positive note: 'We still cherish our good faith in President Trump, ' underlining that the problem is not the President but rather 'headwind against the wills of the two top leaders...,'" he highlighted.

The United States and South Korea held the ceremony to return home the remains of two servicemen - an unidentified allied soldier, presumably American, right, and a South Korean soldier.

At high-level talks last week, North Korea and the US confirmed they are still poles apart on the next steps to be taken in the process.

The letter comes days after the North Korean Foreign Ministry released a statement accusing the USA of "ganster-like" demands and trying to unilaterally pressure the country into abandoning its nuclear weapons.

Returning the remains of the troops was part of the deal signed by Kim and Trump in Singapore. "The Fake News here unfortunately are the Tweets by the president that he ended the nuclear threat from North Korea", Cha said in an editorial in Kyodo News.

According to Choi's source, the North Korean government says it has already unofficially presented its findings to Japan, but Kim has ordered the probe outcome to be explained again since Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's administration claims to have never been briefed about it.
