Trump cryptic about contacts with N Korea's Kim

Washington and Pyongyang are in a standoff over North Korea's missile and nuclear programs, which could be used to target the United States and her allies.

The last five of Pyongyang's six nuclear tests have been carried out under Mount Mantap at Punggye-ri in the country's north-west, all of them at the North Tunnel.

"Approximately nine mining carts are present at the West Portal, and there appear to be new rails on top of the spoil pile", 38North experts said in a report.

It said that on December 28th there were a large number of personnel, roughly 100 to 200, observed in seven different formations whose objective is unknown in the southern support area.

No sitting US president is known to have spoken with a North Korean leader.

President Donald Trump refused to say whether he has spoken directly with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in an interview on Thursday, but said he "probably" has "a very good relationship" with the dictator.

"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.

But North Korea made no promises on its weapons programme at the talks, and lashed out when asked about denuclearisation by South Korean journalists, saying it was not up for discussion.

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 previous year. "I'm not saying I have or haven't", he said. "I'm a very flexible person". Relations between the two Koreas have warmed ahead of next month's Winter Olympics to be held in the South Korean city of Pyeongchang.
