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

Donald Trump

He added that the North Koreans reaffirmed their country's commitment to achieving nuclear parity with the US, insisting it does so to preserve their country's survival.

President Donald Trump suggested in an interview Thursday that he has developed a positive relationship with the North Korean leader, but declined to say whether they have spoken.

"I believe Mr Kim Jong-Un has won this round", Putin told Russian journalists on Thursday.

"I have relationships with people".

"I think that this is possible in the long run no matter how hard it may seem", he went on, focusing on the settlement of the Korean peninsula's nuclear problem. "I'm not saying I have or haven't", he said.

The latest they could make a move would be the week leading into the Super Bowl on January 24, should they still be playing. The Minnesota Vikings and their fans are getting ready to take on the New Orleans Saints in its first playoff game at U.S.

Trump has said North Korea won't be allowed to develop a nuclear missile capable of striking the US, and has threatened war if economic sanctions and negotiations can't avert Kim's ambitions for such a weapon.

North Korea and South Korea held talks on Tuesday after a prolonged period of tension on the Korean peninsula over the North's missile and nuclear programmes. "I just don't want to comment".

Now, in Putin's view, Kim is "cleaning up the situation, smoothing it, calming it". He quipped on social media last week that the "nuclear button" on his desk was larger than that of the North Korean leader.

"You'll see that a lot with me", he said, "and then all of the sudden somebody's my best friend". You give me 30.

In another article on 38North, Alexander Vorontsov, the head of the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russia Academy of Sciences, was quoted as saying that North Korean diplomats were extremely serious about the possibility of war between North Korea and the U.S. "I'm a very flexible person".
