Donald Trump cryptic about contacts with North Korea's Kim Jong Un

The North Korean leader claimed that he has a button on his desk to order a nuclear strike against the US, but for Kim to field a reliable nuclear deterrent against the USA and its allies, additional weapons testing will be undoubtedly be required. "I'm not saying I have or haven't".

The paper reported that Trump would not say whether contacts had already been initiated between the two foes.

The U.S. -based Web site 38 North reports that significant tunneling excavation is under way at North Korea's Punggye-ri nuclear test site, suggesting the area is being prepared for a future nuclear test.

Kim Jong-un has, finally, had his way and Donald Trump is believed to have modified his earlier stance when he had indicated to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that talking to the hermit kingdom was a waste of time. While he has expressed an openness to negotiating with North Korea, he has also promised "fire and fury" for North Korea if their nuclear program and missile tests continued and recently said his nuclear button is "bigger and more powerful" than Kim's, whom he has taken to calling "Little Rocket Man". "I could give you 20 examples".

White House and National Security Council officials declined to comment on whether Trump and Kim have talked. "I just don't want to comment". Forward-deployed United States nukes would also ease Japanese concerns, both about North Korea and about China, and decrease the likelihood of Tokyo going down the very short path to its own nuclear weapons. Kim has responded by calling the U.S. president a "mentally deranged United States dotard". It announced it had postponed its joint military exercises with the U.S., an annual event that North Korea believes encroaches on their sovereignty, earlier this month.

"You'll see that a lot with me", he said. You could give me 30.

In another article on 38North, Alexander Vorontsov, the head of the Institute of Oriental Studies of the Russia Academy of Sciences, was quoted as saying that North Korean diplomats were extremely serious about the possibility of war between North Korea and the U.S. "I'm a very flexible person".

Trump discussed North Korea in a call Thursday with French President Emmanuel Macron of France.

North Korean diplomats are extremely serious about the possibility of war between North Korea and the United States, noting that the US has already prepared for it for months, a Russian expert said Wednesday.
