Trump said on Thursday, during an interview with the Wall Street Journal, that he believes he has developed a positive relationship with North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un.
Russian Federation has voted at the United Nations in favour of worldwide sanctions against North Korea over its nuclear programme, while urging the West to show restraint and calling for talks over the issue.
"You'll see that a lot with me", he said.
Photo The North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, and President Trump have traded taunts for months. "I think you people are surprised".
Asked whether he has spoken with the North Korean leader, Trump told the newspaper: "I don't want to comment on it".
Intensive tunneling, as well as the presence of equipment and hundreds of personnel in satellite images from late December, "underscore North Korea's continued efforts to maintain the Punggye-ri site's potential for future nuclear testing", Frank V. Pabian, Joseph S. Bermudez Jr., and Jack Liu, researchers with 38 North, argue in a new analytical report. Kim called the 71-year-old American president "the mentally deranged US dotard".
The U.S. has not had formal negotiations with North Korea on its nuclear program since 2012. In his New Year's address last week, Kim said he has a "nuclear button" that could fire weapons anywhere in the United States, and Trump responded that he has a much bigger and more powerful "nuclear button".
But Pyongyang - which boycotted the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul - agreed Tuesday to send athletes and officials to the Games as the North and South held their first formal talks in two years at Panmunjom in the Demilitarised Zone.
