North Korea has released a statement through Kim Kye-gwan, spokesman for the North Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where he says that the "main leaders of the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea) and the United States respect each other and maintain a good relationship".
The senior official said that at a meeting held a few days ago, after addressing the "pending problems that arise in external affairs, including the issue of relations between the DPRK and the United States" the North Korean leader said that the relationship between the two leaders " is special".
This statement comes after Trump said Monday during a cabinet meeting that he continues to have a good relationship with Kim Jong-un and also said the United States would have gone to war with North Korea had it not been for his presidency, says Federal News.
"I like Kim, he likes me," Trump said. "We get along. I respect him, he respects me."
The North Korean spokesman also added that he expects this relationship "to provide a driving force to overcome all obstacles between the DPRK and the US." and in this way advance in the bilateral relations of both nations.
He also expresses that unlike Trump, "the political circles of Washington and the political leaders of the DPRK of the US administration are hostile to the DPRK for no reason, concerned about the Cold War mentality and ideological prejudices."
