N Korea’s Kim sent message to Trump on nuclear talks

SEOUL: North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has sent a “conciliatory message” to US President Donald Trump amid stalled nuclear negotiations, South Korea’s Chosun Ilbo newspaper reported on Monday.
Kim’s “letter-like” message to Trump was delivered on Friday through an unspecified channel, the newspaper reported, citing an unnamed diplomatic source.
On Sunday, the office of South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in said Kim had sent a letter to his counterpart in Seoul saying he wants to hold more inter-Korean summits next year to achieve denuclearisation of the peninsula.
Neither the US State Department nor the US Embassy in Seoul had an immediate comment about the report of Kim’s message to Trump when contacted by Reuters.
“There is a dialogue channel between North Korea and the United States through which they exchange active communication, but I cannot know whether it took the form of letter or something else,” Moon’s spokesman told a news briefing on Monday. — Reuters
