Trump open to talks between USA and N.Korea

Moon also said that "once the South-North Korean relations are improved, they can help resolve the North Korean nuclear issue".

Following a meeting with Moon in June, Trump said the "era of strategic patience with the North Korean regime has failed".

Lee said, "I explained the results of the South-North high-level talks to the U.S. side, and they expressed their understanding and support. I'm a very flexible person". "China's been helping us a lot, so you can veer a little bit differently, but for the most part everything I have said I have done", he said in response to a question on his electoral promise of being tough on China.

The paper reported that Trump did not give any inkling if the two bitter rivals have had established any contacts as of yet.

Mr. Trump called Kim "short and fat" on Twitter in November and has previously called him "rocket man" and a "bad dude" and a "maniac".

Upon being asked if he has spoken with the North Korean despot, the POTUS said, "I'm not saying I have or haven't. I want to show my gratitude", Moon told reporters at a news conference, Reuters reported.

North Korea, on 20 January, pledged to send a large delegation to February's Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

Trump's strategy with North Korea has been hot and cold.

President Donald Trump is open to talks between the United States and North Korea, while remaining determined to apply "maximum pressure" over Pyongyang's nuclear program, the White House said Wednesday.

North Korea didn't immediately respond to the joint march proposal. In addition, South Korea offered to enter the Olympics with North Korea under a united flag, although that is also unresolved as of now. "Our task going forward is to draw North Korea to talks aimed at the denuclearization of the North", Moon said.

Meanwhile, South Korea has already made headway to ensure it hosts the Winter Olympics without any diplomatic hiccups.

The two Koreas released a joint statement saying, "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".

The president added that the talks wouldn't necessarily be held without preconditions.

The United States has continuously stressed that the talks should lead to efforts for the North's complete and verifiable denuclearisation.
