  • Expecting 'positive' letter from Kim, says Trump
    SourcesExpecting 'positive' letter from Kim, says Trump

    US President Donald Trump has said he is expecting a "positive" letter from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Speaking to reporters on Friday on Air Force One, Trump said that "I know that a letter is being delivered to me, a personal letter from Kim Jong Un to me," Xinhua news agency reported. "It was handed at the border yesterday," Trump said. "It's actually an elegant way... and I think it's going to be a positive letter." "The letter is being delivered to me ... I think it's being brought in by Mike Pompeo," he added. At the conclusion of the historic Trump-Kim summit in June, the two sides issued a joint statement, in which they agreed to improve bilateral relations and work together to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the peninsula. However, the current North Korea-US talks have been stuck in an impasse due to their differences in the scale of denuclearization, US sanctions, and whether to issue a war-ending declaration. Kim told South Korea's envoy on Wednesday that he firmly supports and will be devoted to completely removing the danger of armed conflicts and the horrors of war from the Korean Peninsula and turning it into a cradle of peace without nuclear weapons and free from any nuclear threat. Trump tweeted later on Thursday in response, thanking Kim for making such a statement and noting that "we will get it done together," referring to the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. Also on Thursday, the US State Department said that special representative for North Korea issue, Stephen Biegun, will travel to the capital cities of South Korea, China and Japan on September 10-15 to discuss the denuclearization of North Korea. Biegun "will meet with his counterparts and continue diplomatic efforts to achieve the final, fully verified denuclearization of North Korea as agreed to by Chairman Kim in Singapore," the State Department said in a statement.

  • Possible to meet Rouhani at UN: Trump
    SourcesPossible to meet Rouhani at UN: Trump

    US President Donald Trump has said it is possible for him to meet his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani at the UN. Speaking on Wednesday before a bilateral meeting with Kuwait's visiting Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Trump said "anything is possible" regarding the meeting, Xinhua reported. "Whether they want to talk or not, that's up to them, not up to me," he said. "I will always be available... we'll see what happens." Trump said on July 30 that he is ready to meet with Rouhani without preconditions. "I'd meet with anybody. I believe in meeting," Trump said. "They want to meet, I'll meet. Any time they want. Good for the country. Good for them. Good for us. And good for the world." However, the US in August re-imposed sanctions on Iran that had been suspended under a landmark 2015 nuclear deal. Rouhani said in response that the Iranians would make the US "regretful" for its renewal of sanctions. He also said that the US administration "is not trustworthy for any negotiations" after its withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal, since "negotiations with sanctions don't make sense". Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei also said lately that any negotiation with the US to solve the existing problems is an "obvious mistake". US-Iranian relations have been at odds as the Trump administration left the historic Iran nuclear deal, de-legitimised its government, vowed to re-impose sanctions on the nation and pressed other nations to cut down their purchase of Iranian oil to zero.

  • Trump slams book on his administration
    SourcesTrump slams book on his administration

    US President Donald Trump has slammed an explosive book about his administration. Trump on Wednesday said the book, written by US veteran investigative journalist Bob Woodward, "means nothing" and called it "a work of fiction" during a photo op with visiting Kuwaiti Emir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah at the White House, Xinhua reported. Woodward's book -- "Fear: Trump in the White House" -- is to be released next week. According to excerpts obtained by media outlets, Trump's aides describe him as a "liar" and an "idiot" who is running a "crazytown." "Isn't it a shame that someone can write an article or book, totally make up stories and form a picture of a person that is literally the exact opposite of the fact, and get away with it without retribution or cost," Trump tweeted on Wednesday. He also tweeted out written statements of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Secretary of Defence James Mattis, both of whom denied uttering quoted criticisms of the president in the book. In a statement to The Washington Post, Woodward said, "I stand by my reporting." The book was based on hundreds of hours of conversations with direct players, according to the author. Woodward has been a reporter at the The Washington Post since 1971 and remains an associate editor there. He is most famous for breaking the story of the Watergate scandal, which promoted the resignation of Richard Nixon from the presidency in 1974.
