Kim Thanks Trump For “Strong Will, Sincere Efforts” In Formal Letter

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A week after North Korea reportedly lashed out at the US for Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s “extremely troubling” insistence that it abandon its nuclear program and its weapons before economic sanctions are lifted – raising suspicions that China had asked Kim to put the breaks on the detente as trade tensions escalated – Kim Jong Un has sent Trump a flattering letter apparently just to make it clear that there are no hard feelings.

Trump tweeted out a copy of the letter Thursday shortly after landing in London, calling it “a very nice note from Chairman Kim of North Korea. Great progress being made!” In the letter, Kim said that the “strong will” of himself and Trump will lead to a “new future” between the DPRK and the US.

Here’s the full text:

H.E. Donald J. Trump
United States of America

Your Excellency Mr. President,

The significant first meeting with Your Excellency and the joint statement that we signed together in Singapore 24 days ago was indeed the start of a meaningful journey.

I deeply appreciate the energetic and extraordinary efforts made by Your Excellency Mr. President for the improvement of relations between the two countries and the faithful implementation of the joint statement.

I firmly believe that the strong will, sincere efforts and unique approach of myself and Your Excellency Mr. President aimed at opening up a new future between the DPRK and the U.S. will surely come to fruition.

Wishing that the invariable trust and confidence in Your Excellency Mr. President will be further strengthened in the future process of taking practical actions, I extend my conviction that the epochal progress in promoting the DPRK-U.S. relations will bring our next meeting forward.

Kim Jong Un
Chairman of the State Affairs Commission
Democratic People’s Republic of Korea

Pyongyang, July 6, 2018

At the same time, the Trump administration has reportedly asked the UN to reprimand China and Russia for selling refined petroleum products to the North in violation of UN sanctions on Pyongyang. If that’s not a gesture of friendship, we’re not sure what is.
