  • Morning Joe Laughs Out Loud at Trump's Tweet to Chairman Kim: 'His Friends are Despots!'

Kim told visiting South Korean envoys Wednesday he was ready to accept "stronger measures" to restrict his nuclear program and wanted a declaration with the U.S.to formally end the Korean War, the officials said.

Chung Eui-yong (R), head of the presidential National Security Office, holds a press conference at the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae in Seoul on September 6, 2018 on the outcome of his one-day trip to North Korea the previous day as a special envoy of South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

"Kim Jong Un of North Korea proclaims 'unwavering faith in President Trump.' Thank you to Chairman Kim", Trump posted on Twitter. We will get it done together!,' Trump tweeted Thursday morning.

Kim and Trump held an unprecedented summit in Singapore in June, in which the North Korean leader made a broad, vague commitment to work toward denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

ABC News reported that Kim Jong Il once said that the games were a crucial part of children's training as communists.

Narrowing the gap and rebuilding trust between Kim and Trump is key in the dialogue - if any - ahead, he said. "Xi's trip would have taken place at a time when President [Donald] Trump is pointing fingers at China for."[not] helping with the process of denuclearization" due to so-called trade tensions".

The next step in nuclear diplomacy is uncertain.

The inter-Korean summit would come just before a gathering of world leaders at the United Nations in NY at the end of September, but Seoul said Thursday that it was unlikely Kim would attend.

North Korea and South Korea asked the United Nations on Friday to circulate a peace declaration their leaders agreed to in April that vows to remove nuclear weapons from the Korean peninsula and work toward a formal end to the Korean War.

Although North Korea stages military parades nearly every year, and held one just before the Olympics began in South Korea in February this year, Sunday's parade comes at a particularly sensitive time.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Pyongyang in July, after which North Korea accused him of making "unilateral and gangster-like demands for denuclearization" while showing little interest in ending the war. "He probably saw that there was nothing good in provoking Trump", Lee Byong-chul, of Seoul's Institute for Peace and Cooperation, said.

This means North Korea "will completely halt long-range missile tests in the future, and is a very practical and significant step", Chung added.

President Trump added that his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will deliver Kim's letter to him, when he returns to the USA from his visit to India.

Earlier on Friday, generals from the United States and North Korea met at the Korean border to discuss the recovery of the remains of USA service members killed in the Korean War, a senior US official said. The North Korean leader cited his dismantlement of a key nuclear test site and his suspension of missile tests.

Both Kim and Trump have stressed their personal relationship since meeting in an unprecedented June 12 summit which skeptics say was big on fanfare but short on substance. The article said the North has shown "goodwill and generosity" through actions such as returning U.S. war remains and dismantling a nuclear testing ground, but that the United States has failed to respond similarly.

North Korea's message has been delivered to White House National Security Adviser John Bolton, Seoul said.
