Donald Trump is said to have written a personal letter to Kim Jong Un. According to North Korea, in it he set out his plans for the future relationship between the two countries.
According to North Korea, US President Donald Trump has set out his plans for advancing relations between the two countries in a personal letter to ruler Kim Jong Un.
Trump also expressed his intention to cooperate in the fight against epidemics, said Kim Yo Jong Un in a statement on Sunday by Kim’s influential sister Kim Yo Jong, alluding to the coronavirus pandemic. Kim warned, however, that the good relationship between her brother and Trump should not be allowed to carry over to the strained relations between the two countries.
Kim accused the USA of trying to create a “cruel environment” for North Korea. North Korea is working hard to defend itself in this environment, the deputy department head of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party was quoted by the state media.
Statement one day after missile test
After his failed summit with Trump in February 2019 in Vietnam, Kim Jong Un had given the US a deadline until the end of that year to offer acceptable proposals for the continuation of negotiations on North Korea’s nuclear weapons programme. In the absence of a proposal, the isolated leadership in Pyongyang no longer felt bound by the test ban on nuclear bombs and long-range missiles.
Kim Yo Jong praised the letter as an appropriate action trumps to maintain good relations with her brother. It was not clear when Kim received the letter. The statement came the day after a new missile test by North Korea.
According to the military in South Korea, two ballistic missiles were fired towards the Sea of Japan (Korean: East Sea). UN resolutions prohibit North Korea from testing ballistic missiles, which, depending on their design, can also carry a nuclear warhead. (awa/dpa)
