” Appreciating the political evaluating professors and extraordinary guts of President Trump, Kim Jong Un said that he would seriously ponder the interesting content,” the firm said.
Nuclear talks between the U.S. and North Korea broke down after the stopped working top between Kim and Trump in February in Vietnam.
The U.S. is demanding that North Korea desert its nuclear weapons entirely before worldwide sanctions are raised. North Korea is seeking a step-by-step method in which moves towards denuclearization are matched by concessions from the U.S., significantly a relaxation of the sanctions.
Trump and Kim exchanged letters in 2018 after a summit in Singapore to talk about the nuclear problem. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said at the time that the letters addressed their commitment to work towards North Korea’s “total denuclearization.”
In September 2018, Trump told a cheering crowd at a campaign rally in West Virginia that Kim “composed me beautiful letters and they’re great letters. We fell in love.”
