President Trump Says He Has a 'Very Good Relationship' With Kim Jong

Trump claimed credit Wednesday for the inter-Korean dialogue, saying North Korea was feeling the pressure of a USA -led campaign of sanctions over its nuclear weapons and missile development. If the report from 38 North proves to be correct, we may see the conflict between North Korea and the USA reach a whole new level.

The satellite images were published shortly after the two Koreas - North and South - held their first historic meeting in two years, which concluded with both countries' showing signs of reducing regional tension, after a year of Pyongyang's continuous weapons tests and US President Donald Trump's hostile remarks towards North Korea.

The U.S. has not had formal negotiations with North Korea on its nuclear program since 2012.

Earlier in January, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. North Korea's aggressive pursuit of a ballistic missile capable of hitting the United States with a nuclear warhead has emerged as the president's most fraught foreign crisis.

Another option would be a retaliatory strike on an ICBM or nuclear site after a test, another official said.

However, Zhao Tong, a North Korea expert at the Carnegie-Tsinghua Center in Beijing, said China's attitude might change if North Korea launched a nuclear-tipped ICBM into the Pacific Ocean or fired missiles toward Guam. Seoul and Washington have also agreed to postpone joint military drills until after the games, which Trump said "sends a good message to North Korea".

A South Korean official said Seoul believed the chance of a USA strike was still low. "He's been advised by a lot of agencies and departments of the damage it would cause and the number of victims", the official said. Later, he said that attempts to talk to Kim is a waste of time, but now he is saying that he would be willing to chat with the North Korean leader on the phone.

"It may be risky after the Olympics", the lawmaker said.
