Trump Won't Say Whether He Spoke With North Korea's Kim Jong Un

Kim Jong Un a competent and mature leader, says Russia's Vladimir Putin

Donald Trump

"I'm not saying I have or haven't", he said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal published Thursday.

Putin, in a meeting with Russian journalists broadcast on state TV, said North Korea had developed powerful missiles, but now wanted to calm things down.

Photo The North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, and President Trump have traded taunts for months. "I think you people are surprised".

Satellite images show that North Korea has bored new tunnels near its Punggye-ri nuclear test site, indicating Pyongyang's intention to maintain its potential for future nuclear testing, a U.S. website specialised in North Korean affairs has said. Technically, South Korea and the US remain at war with North Korea after the Korean War ended in 1953 with an armistice instead of a peace treaty.

"I have relationships with people".




Direct talks between the USA president and Kim would be unprecedented.

Trump has mocked Kim's weight and called him "little rocket man" in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly.

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.

The U.S. announced Thursday that it has deployed three nuclear-capable B-2 stealth bombers and 200 air personnel in the territory of Guam, to which North Korea had threatened to launch a missile in August past year.
