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".

"I have relationships with people", Trump continued. North Korea's aggressive pursuit of a ballistic missile capable of hitting the US with a nuclear warhead has emerged as the president's most fraught foreign crisis.

They call each other "Rocket Man" and "Dotard". While the two Koreas noted the need for peace on the peninsula, the North expressed frustration when the South tried to address its illegal nuclear program. It has, however, retained back-channel communications through the North's diplomatic mission at the United Nations in NY.

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.
