Trump Suggests He Has 'Very Good Relationship' With North Korea's Kim

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un watches the launch of a Hwasong-12 missile

In recent days, in a series of media leaks, US officials have spoken of the president's willingness to consider a limited preemptive strike on North Korea to change Kim's mindset, despite the risk of touching off a war.

Russian Federation has voted at the United Nations in favor of global sanctions against North Korea over its nuclear program, while urging the West to show restraint and calling for talks over the issue.

The Vancouver meeting, aimed at increasing the USA -led pressure campaign against Pyongyang, was announced by Washington just after North Korea's last intercontinental ballistic missile test in late November.

On November 29, the North Korean leader said that his country had achieved full nuclear statehood after what he said was the successful test of a new missile capable of striking anywhere in the United States.

US President Donald Trump has signalled that he has developed a "good relationship" with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, despite tensions between them.

Trump has in the past called Kim "short and fat" and "a bad dude". "I'm a very flexible person". I like him. He likes me.

National security adviser H.R. McMaster has been the most vocal of Trump's aides arguing for a more active military approach, while Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and the military leadership have urged caution, stressing the need to exhaust diplomatic options, according to five officials who spoke on condition of anonymity.

As a result of Chinese help so far, Trump said he has not been tough on China as he would like to be.

Trump has been of late more open, on more than one occasion, to having a dialogue with North Korea.

Despite the loss of nearly all trade, the impoverished North has pressed ahead with weapons development that Kim's regime sees as necessary for its survival in the face of USA pressure.

"It is of paramount importance to support every effort at dialog on the Korean peninsula, in order to find new ways of overcoming the current disputes, increasing mutual trust and ensuring a peaceful future for the Korean people and the entire world", Francis said.

Imports from the North shrank 81.6 percent to $54 million in December while exports to the isolated, impoverished country contracted 23.4 percent to $260 million, said a spokesman for the Chinese customs agency, Huang Songping.

"It is a big problem, and they should not have left me with that problem".

"I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un", Trump told The Wall Street Journal. "I have relationships with people, I think you people are surprised", Trump said.

When asked whether he had talked to Kim, Trump replied, "I don't want to comment on it. I'm not saying I have or I haven't". "I don't want to comment on it".
