Trump releases ‘very nice’ letter from Kim Jong Un

London- President Donald Trump¬† on Thursday released a letter from Kim Jong Un, in which the North Korean leader voices confidence in efforts to end their nuclear standoff, while calling on his US counterpart to take “practical actions” to build trust.

Trump tweeted images of the letter which was dated back on July 6, he wrote, “A very nice note from Chairman Kim of North Korea.”

It was a day when US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo landed in Pyongyang for what turned out to be difficult talks with Kim’s regime.

“Great progress being made!” Trump added in his tweet.

The historic June meeting resulted in a joint statement agreed by both sides, as the “start of a meaningful journey.”

Kim writes, “I firmly believe that the strong will, sincere efforts and unique approach of myself and Your Excellency Mr. President aimed at opening up a new future between the DPRK and the U.S. will sure surely come to fruition,”

“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,” he adds.

The North Korean leader also voiced his hope’s of their relations in future, “the invariable trust and confidence in Your Excellency Mr. President will be further strengthened in the future process of taking practical actions.”

Pompeo traveled to Pyongyang for two days last week in a bid to start denuclearization commitments made during last month’s summit between Trump and Kim.

North Korea has long trumpeted a denuclearization goal, but has an undefined multilateral disarmament on the entire Korean peninsula, instead of a unilateral dismantlement of its nuclear arsenal.

Pompeo after the talks insisted they were making progress and were being conducted in “good faith.”

However in stark contrast, Pyongyang’s take was majorly negative, with the North Korea warning that the future of the peace process was being hampered by overbearing US demands for its unilateral nuclear disarmament.
