Pres. Trump's New Nuclear Posture to Boost Flexibility, Efficacy of US Nukes


US President Donald Trump told his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in on Wednesday he is open to talking with North Korea, the South's presidential office said after the two leaders spoke by telephone.

Putin said during a meeting with Russian journalists that Kim was "shrewd and mature" in his handling of escalated tensions with Seoul and Washington and is now looking to ease hostilities, according to a Reuters report. "I have relationships with people, I think you people are surprised", Trump said.

Following the first inter-Korean talks this week in more than two years, the two sides had agreed to hold talks on 20 January, hosted by the International Olympic Committee. North Korea, however, said no discussion on nuclear weapons will take place as they were aimed at the USA, not South Korea, Russia or China.

This offer comes on the heels of a landmark deal between the warring nations that allows North Korea to send a delegation of athletes, fans, and high-ranking government officials to the South for the upcoming Olympics in Pyeongchang.

North Korea has become Trump's most urgent foreign crisis, as he struggles to contain the regime's rapidly advancing nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs.

The US president in an interview made this remark, though he declined to comment on whether he had a talk with the North Korean leader in recent times or not.
