US President refuses to comment on whether he has actually talked to North Korean leaderUS President Donald Trump said he has a "very good relationship" with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un celebrates what was said to be the test launch of a Hwasong-12 missile, in an undated government photo that was distributed September 16, 2017.

"I have relationships with people", Trump continued.

"I think that this is possible in the long run no matter how hard it may seem", he went on, focusing on the settlement of the Korean peninsula's nuclear problem.

"I like it very much what I'm seeing". This decision may have been the key element in the North's agreement to meet with the South.

Martha McSally launches Senate campaign in heated GOP race
She's betting big that she needs Trump's most passionate supporters on her side if she's to keep Flake's seat in Republican hands. I also made this clear: we won't let the Dems hold our troops hostage in negotiations over DACA. "Our military is relying on us".

Might Trump, after the Games, reverse himself yet again and gamble on a pre-emptive strike against North Korean missile and nuclear sites?

"Just to be clear, you haven't spoken to the North Korean leader, I mean when you say a relationship with Korea", he was immediately asked. The joint statement issued after the talks states: "South and North Korea have decided to make joint efforts for the unity of the people and reconciliation by establishing an environment for peace and easing military tensions on the Korean peninsula". He said the United States was open to talks with North Korea under the right circumstances.

Trump has also promised of no military action during "the talk", according to the South Korean government.

In a telephone conversation with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Wednesday, Trump welcomed the resumption of talks, saying his country may hold a dialogue with the communist state when the timing and conditions are right.

China, North Korea's largest trading partner and chief ally, advocates the so-called freeze-for-freeze proposal that would require the US and South Korea to freeze their annual military exercises, considered by Pyongyang a serious provocation and a prelude to invasion, and North Korea to halt its nuclear and missile tests (Mr Trump has agreed to postpone regular joint military exercises with South Korea until the Winter Games conclude).

The Chinese side explained the move by saying that its navy was in the area to monitor and follow two vessels belonging to Japan. The Chinese ambassador responded to the protest by reiterating China's stance on the islands, the statement added.

The biggest impact by the North Korean delegation at Pyeongchang might be by the cheerleading squad or performance art group it plans to send.

North Korea has agreed to send a team to the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea next month. Such a strike could be triggered by evidence that North Korea was fueling an ICBM, the official said.

The US and South Korea have decided not to stage the annual exercises during the upcoming Winter Olympics and Paralympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Some U.S. officials have suggested that North Korea was using diplomatic overtures to try to drive a wedge between Washington and ally Seoul and did not intend to engage seriously. Diplomats report the beginnings of food shortages in North Korea, and China is sending some North Korean workers back home. There may be signs of a thaw on the Korean peninsula but thaw in the frozen relations between the USA and North Korea are nowhere on the horizon.

Trump supporters claim his refusal to rule out military options has helped achive an about face from North Korea, who is now engaged in a dialogue with the South and is subject to tough United Nations economic.
