Trump Boasts of 'Very Good Relationship' With North Korean Leader

Russian Federation has voted at the United Nations in favour of worldwide sanctions against North Korea over its nuclear programme, while urging the West to show restraint and calling for talks over the issue.

Washington's relatively open attitude toward the regime also comes amid thawing relations between South and North Korea, after Inter-Korean high-level talks took place on Tuesday, just ahead of the upcoming 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics.

President Donald Trump refused to say whether he has spoken directly with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in an interview on Thursday, but said he "probably" has "a very good relationship" with the dictator.

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".

A White House statement said the two leaders discussed Macron's recent visit to China and committed to continue to apply pressure on North Korea.
