Jan. 24, 2019 (EIRNS)—North Korean Chairman Kim Jong-un spoke highly of U.S. President Donald Trump, North Korean state media KCNA reported today, and expressed satisfaction over the results of talks between officials from both countries about a second summit between Kim and Trump, the South China Morning Post reported.

Kim said he would trust Trump’s approach, KCNA reported, suggesting Kim is focused on the next meeting with Trump to produce results. He was quoted as saying that “we will believe in President Trump’s positive way of thinking, wait with patience and in good faith and, together with the U.S., advance step by step toward the goal to be reached by the two countries,” SCMP reported.

Meanwhile, Kim has indicated to South Korean President Moon Jae-in that he would undertake a groundbreaking denuclearization measure, the South Korean daily Dong-A Ilbo reported today. The newspaper, citing an unidentified source with direct knowledge of the U.S.-North Korea situation, said the same had been made clear to President Trump during North Korean Vice Chairman Kim Yong-chol’s Washington visit last week, SCMP reported.
