Vladimir Putin calls Kim Jong Un 'competent and mature' leader

Vladimir Putin calls Kim Jong Un 'competent and mature' leader

"I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong-un", Trump said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. "I'm not saying I have or haven't". "I have relationships with people. I just don't want to comment". It involved the US loosening certain sanctions on North Korea if the reclusive nation did not use the Olympics to stage some sort of attack.

A new analysis suggests the United States and South Korea could benefit by taking a page from the Reagan administration's playbook when it comes to dealing with North Korea and its threats of starting a nuclear war.

"I don't want to comment on it-I don't want to comment, I'm not saying I have or I haven't".

Kim, in a speech last week, said the "nuclear button is always on my desk", prompting Trump to respond in a tweet that his nuclear button is "a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!"

On January 10, the White House cited Mr. Trump's willingness to hold talks "at the appropriate time, under the right circumstances" with Pyongyang. "I have relationships with people, I think you people are surprised", Trump said.

While Trump has referred to Jong-un as "rocket man", his rival had previously called him a "mentally deranged dotard".

China has not done enough on the issue of North Korea for the US, President Donald Trump has said but appreciated the "great chemistry" he shares with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Trump and Kim have traded bellicose rhetoric and crude insults over the previous year, as North Korea has accelerated weapons tests and appears on the cusp of having a nuclear-tipped missile that could strike the USA mainland. "I'm a very flexible person".

The olive branch led to the first official dialogue between the two Koreas in more than two years, and an agreement for Pyongyang to send a delegation to next month's Winter Olympics in the South.

The Seoul Olympics ended without any drama from North Korea, which shot down a South Korean airliner in 1987, so the Reagan administration took additional steps to help improve relations. It announced it had postponed its joint military exercises with the U.S., an annual event that North Korea believes encroaches on their sovereignty, earlier this month.
