Donald Trump shares 'a very nice note' from Kim Jong

Donald Trump shares 'a very nice note' from Kim Jong

President Donald Trump tweeted on Thursday a flattering letter from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that followed up on June's historic summit in Singapore.

In the English version, dated July 6, Kim writes that the June 12 summit in Singapore "was indeed the start of a meaningful journey".

US President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he has a "little gift" for North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, but wouldn't reveal what it is.

"I deeply appreciate the energetic and extraordinary efforts made by Your Excellency Mr. President for the improvement of relations between the two countries and the faithful implementation of the joint statement".

But there's growing skepticism in Washington over the Trump administration's engagement with North Korea.

Pompeo said his discussions in Pyongyang last week had been productive, although he left without a North Korean agreement to take specific steps toward dismantling its nuclear weapons program.

"The road ahead will be hard and challenging and we know that critics will try to minimize the work that we've achieved", he said.

The president's comments on China appeared to reflect concern that USA imposition of punitive tariffs on Chinese imports last week could make China less cooperative in pressuring the North over its nuclear and missile programs.

He said that North Korean negotiators made "a commitment consistent with what President Trump was able to achieve with Chairman Kim, which was they intend to denuclearize, they're going to accomplish it and now the task is to get it implemented".

He also says that bilateral trust should be "further strengthened in the future process of taking practical actions".

The United States accused Pyongyang of illegally importing oil products on Thursday and asked the United Nations Security Council to demand countries halt future deliveries to North Korea. "We agreed to the denuclearization of North Korea".

According to the Pentagon, North Korean officials have indicated in the past that they have the remains of as many as 200 U.S. troops.

The United States has asked the UN Security Council to impose an immediate stop to all shipments of refined oil products to North Korea, after finding that Kim Jong-un's regime has vastly exceeded the UN-restricted quota for oil product imports, the AFP reported on Thursday, citing a confidential USA report to the UN sanctions committee.

U.S. State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert told reporters on Saturday that Pompeo, though not meeting Kim during his stay, did leave a letter from Trump to Kim in Pyongyang.

"North Korea apparently wants a USA general to appear at the table to quickly finalize the repatriation issue", the source said. His top deputy, who took the meeting in Kim's absence, said his boss was out of town without revealing what was more important than a sit-down with the top USA diplomat.

Trump also again touted his meeting with the Kim Jong Un, calling it "an incredible meeting" and saying the two "established very good relations". Pyongyang has asked the UN Command Armistice Commission to upgrade the talks to a higher level to include a US general, South Korea's foreign ministry said.
