SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korean leader Kim Jong Un invited U.S. President Donald Trump to visit Pyongyang in a letter sent in August, a South Korean newspaper reported on Monday, citing diplomatic sources.

 

The letter, the second Trump received from Kim last month amid stalled denuclearisation talks between the two countries, pre-dated North Korea's latest launch of short-range projectiles a week ago.

 

In the second letter, which was passed to Trump in the third week of August, Kim spoke of his willingness to meet Trump for another summit, one source reportedly told the Joongang Ilbo newspaper.

 

The White House, the U.S. State Department and the North Korean mission to the United Nations all did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Trump and Kim have met three times since June last year to discuss ways to resolve a crisis over North Korea's missile and nuclear programmes, but substantive progress has been scant.

 

The pair last met at the Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) between the two Koreas in June and agreed to restart working-level negotiations that had been stalled since an unsuccessful second summit between the two leaders in Vietnam in February.

 

Last week's round of short-range missiles came just hours after Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui said North Korea was willing to have "comprehensive discussions" late this month.

 

Trump subsequently said he would be willing to meet Kim at some point later this year.

 

Trump said on Aug. 9 he had received a three-page "very beautiful letter" from Kim and added he could have another meeting with him.

Kim Jong Un is a smart cookie ….  he's just playing with the US.

No way he's going to be seen to be giving in to the likes of America ...

He's just using his run around delay, no chance, tactics on Trump. imo

He won't give up his nuke program until his Chinese masters tell him to. Good that Mr. Prez. keeps trying though... he really is trying to bring peace.

What he's trying to do is keeping the spin going on his misguided summitry.

Sounds like some of you guys can identify with Kim Jong Un because you understand him so well. Perhaps you're a bit like him. Right?  🤣 🤣

More likely that Trump identifies with Kim out of dictator envy.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un invited U.S. President Donald Trump to visit Pyongyang in a letter

News of the apparent new letter came as the North’s Foreign Ministry released a statement Monday saying that it expected working-level talks with the U.S. to resume “in the next few weeks,” but warning that “dialogue offers two options: crisis and opportunity.”

  • “Only when the threats and obstacles that disturb our institutional security and hinder our development are … removed will we be able to denuclearize,”

Asked whether he would meet Kim again this year, Trump said: “At some point, yes. … Certainly they want to meet, they’d like to meet. I think it’s something that will happen and we’ll see. … I think something can happen.”

The good news is that such a visit by Trump to North Korea will eclipse the absurd idea of Trump inviting the Taliban to the U.S. for negotiations.
