Trump Says 'Probably' Has a Good Relationship With North Korea's Kim

President Donald Trump threw his weight behind the Olympics-inspired diplomatic opening with North Korea, telling South Korea's leader Wednesday that the USA was open to talks with Kim Jong Un's government under the right circumstances.

Pointing to "Trump's inflammatory rhetoric" with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, the statement warns the administration has "undercut diplomatic efforts and [increased] the likelihood of stumbling into conflict".

"I have relationships with people", Trump continued. "I think it's premature".

Marcotte made contact with the North Korean delegation to offer encouragement to the pair.

Experts fear that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would stop cooperation after the games are over.

None of that, however, means North Korea has any intention of slowing its drive for more powerful nuclear missiles and warheads, specifically those that would allow it to hit the US.

"Even if Trump is not really serious about a military strike, there is always the risk of miscalculation or an over-reaction from North Korea", Zhao said. In the end, however, it took just 11 hours of face-to-face discussion, on January 9th, for the two sides to agree that the North would participate in the winter Olympics next month, which South Korea is hosting in Pyeongchang, a district just 50 miles from the heavily fortified border between the two.

However, President Trump appears to have won the war of words, after North and South Korea held rare formal talks Wednesday.

Putin reiterated that dialogue with North Korea was warranted, and said Kim now wanted to calm the situation. He also called for North Korea to move towards denuclearisation - a plea which is unlikely to find any response from the North.

Richard Garwin, a main designer of the world's first hydrogen bomb, called NKorea's hydrogen claim quite plausible, noting the "enormous advances" in computer modeling and "the dedication of the small group of nuclear technologists in North Korea". It has, however, retained back-channel communications through the North's diplomatic mission at the United Nations in NY.

For now, "We don't want to be too belligerent or aggressive or dismissive while our ally is trying to pursue this course", Schoff said of South Korea.

"He said the offensive should be launched in the party cells, the bases educating the party members and other working people and training them into revolutionaries, and the lowest revolutionary posts defending Korean-style socialism", KCNA said in its English edition. To the contrary, it was part of an intentional campaign created to get North Korea to understand that Trump, unlike his predecessors, is willing to use force to stop Pyongyang from threatening American cities. During the dialogue, it was confirmed that North Korea will send its fleet of athletes, high-ranking officials, and cheering squad to Winter Olympics held next month in Pyeongchang. -North Korea relations and the challenges and options going forward.

North Korea boycotted the 1988 Summer Games in Seoul, meaning Pyeongchang will be the first Olympics they have attended in the South.
