UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — US President Donald Trump said Friday that his relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was “good” despite the failure of their last summit in Vietnam.
“I think it is still good,” Trump said in response to a question about his relationship with the North Korean leader, a week after he failed to reach a partial agreement with Pyongyang on Pyongyang’s abandonment of its nuclear arsenal.
The official North Korean agency acknowledged earlier Friday for the first time the failure of the summit, which was supposed to mark the completion of the first historic summit held by the two leaders in Singapore last year.
“The people at home and abroad are sorry, and the United States holds the responsibility of ending the summit without reaching an agreement,” the North Korean agency said.
After a stalemate in Hanoi, experts said this week that Pyongyang had begun rebuilding the Sohei long-range missile launch facility, which the North Korean leader last year had agreed to close as part of efforts to build confidence between the two sides.
Trump warned Wednesday that he would be “very disappointed” if reports were confirmed that Pyongyang was working to rebuild the Suhei site.
