Donald Trump shares letter from Kim Jong Un, says ‘progress being made!’

U.S. President Donald Trump talks with the media as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo looks on after a meeting with North Korean envoy Kim Yong Chol at the White House

US President Donald Trump on Thursday, June 12, tweeted a letter written to him by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on July 6, calling it "a very nice note" and hailed the denuclearisation process with the East Asian nation which is now underway.

Trump shared the letter in a tweet Thursday, writing, "A very nice note from Chairman Kim of North Korea". North Korea criticized Pompeo's "gangster-like" demands in negotiations and said the "attitude" of the United States was "regrettable", while Pompeo signaled "progress" in the talks between the two nations.

The fact that North Korea seem to be dragging its feet on this issue fuels already growing doubts among President Trump's critics about whether the Singapore summit was a success or simply a publicity stunt for Mr Kim, the BBC's Cindy Sui in Seoul reports.

The letter is dated July 6.

Ko Yu-hwan, a South Korean analyst at Dongguk University, said the talks may not be exclusively focused on the return of remains, local news network JTBC reported.

North Korean and U.S. military officials met at the inter-Korea border Sunday to discuss repatriation of the remains of American troops killed during the Korean War, a report said.

The idea of "practical actions" is hardly a firm stance issued by the North Korean dictator.

Trump tweets out letter he got from Kim Jong Un
US State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said North Korea has now offered to meet the delegation on Sunday. He also agreed to repatriate remains of United States troops who died during the Korean War six decades ago.

US President Donald Trump holds up a document signed by him and North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un following a signing ceremony during their historic US-North Korea summit, at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore on June 12, 2018.

The day before, he had said that North Korea's negative statement after Pompeo's visit was a "strategy that can often be seen in negotiations" and that Pyongyang and Washington had the same view of denuclearization, according to a statement from spokesman Yoon Young-chan released on Thursday.

North Korea was expected to hand over those remains - believed to belong to some 200 to 250 USA servicemen - in the weeks following the meeting.

Lee Do-hoon, South Korea's chief nuclear envoy, provided the update to reporters in Washington after holding a series of meetings with US officials handling the negotiations.

North Korea's Foreign Ministry accused the US of making a "unilateral and gangster-like" demand for the North's denuclearization after the two-day talks concluded.

"We will be ready", Nauert told reporters aboard Pompeo's plane, as the top United States diplomat flew home to Washington after attending a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit.

Kim Jong-un has sent a warm but vague letter to his new friend Donald Trump.
