Trump Won't Say Whether He Spoke With North Korea's Kim Jong Un

Trump and Kim have traded bellicose rhetoric and crude insults over the a year ago, as North Korea has accelerated weapons tests and appears on the cusp of having a nuclear-tipped missile that could strike the US mainland.

"Approximately nine mining carts are present at the West Portal, and there appear to be new rails on top of the spoil pile", 38North experts said in a report. Analysts said the North Portal (Tunnel 2) - where the last five nuclear tests were conducted - of the test site was in a dormant state, with water draining from its entrance.

On 28 December, satellite images also spotted around 100 to 120 personnel at the site's Southern Support Area in seven different mysterious formations.

President Trump, who has repeatedly called Kim Jong-Un "Rocket Man" and his government a "band of criminals" while threatening to destroy the country with "fire and fury", said Thursday that he has a "very good relationship" with the Korean dictator.

"I have relationships with people", Trump continued.

The meeting even led Trump to express his willingness to hold a dialogue with North Korea "at the appropriate time, under the right circumstances". "I'm not saying I have or haven't", he said.

He added that the North Koreans reaffirmed their country's commitment to achieving nuclear parity with the USA, insisting it does so to preserve their country's survival.

In follow-up questions Trump pushed back against the notion that his relationship with Pyongyang has soured, saying, "you'll see that a lot with me".

The president's remarks come after North and South Korea this week held their first talks in two years, and the North agreed to participate in the Winter Olympics in the South next month.
