Kim sends a "friendly" message to Trump about his negotiations, according to newspaper

North Korea's leader, Kim Jong-un, has sent a "friendly" message to US President Donald Trump, in which he addresses his negotiations on denuclearization, the South Korean daily Chosun Ilbo reported on Monday.

Kim transmitted his message in a letter that was delivered through an unknown channel last Friday, said the newspaper, which cites unidentified diplomatic sources familiar with the letter.

The only thing that the newspaper details of the message is that it is "friendly" and that it talks about the conversations between Washington and Pyongyang.

Kim and Trump agreed at their historic summit in June in Singapore (the first ever between the two countries) to work towards the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, but negotiations between the two countries have been stalled for months over their differences on how to carry out the process.

North Korea demands progress in the signing of a peace treaty with the South that puts an end to the state of war that technically remains in the peninsula and the lifting of sanctions that weigh on the country, in exchange for executing concrete steps to dismantle his arsenal that the White House demands.

Information about the letter to Trump is published a day after Kim sent a letter to South Korean President Moon Jae-in, highlighting the mutual efforts to overcome bilateral tension and free their people "from the fear of war "

The North Korean leader praised his efforts and those of Moon to "move together in favor of peace and prosperity in the Korean peninsula" and remains firm in his intention to hold the next inter-Korean summit in Seoul, although he did not specify when.

Kim is also scheduled to meet for the second time with Trump in the coming months, as confirmed by the tenant of the Oval Office, although the date and venue of the meeting have not been defined.
