My relation with Kim Jong-un is very good: Donald Trump

"I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un", Trump told The Wall Street Journal.

The U.N. Security Council has steadily tightened trade restrictions as leader Kim Jong Un's government pressed ahead with nuclear and missile development in defiance of foreign pressure. "I'm not saying I have or I haven't".

"You'll see that a lot with me", he said about his tweets.

Trump and Kim have traded bellicose rhetoric and crude insults over the past year, as North Korea has accelerated weapons tests and appears on the cusp of having a nuclear-tipped missile that could strike the USA mainland.

"I have relationships with people". In his New Year's address last week, Kim said he has a "nuclear button" that could fire weapons anywhere in the United States, and Trump responded that he has a much bigger and more powerful "nuclear button". "I just don't want to comment", he said.

Trump has derided the North Korean leader as a "maniac" and referred to him as "little rocket man". "I just don't want to comment".

"At a minimum, he thinks that warning the Chinese about a preemptive strike would motivate Beijing to force Kim to shut down the programs that threaten the US", the official said.

Russian Federation has voted at the United Nations in favor of global sanctions against North Korea over its nuclear program, while urging the West to show restraint and calling for talks over the issue.

But officials say this discussion has been postponed until after the Paralympic Games, which follow the Olympics and end in March, given the intra-Korean talks and a planned 20-country meeting on North Korea hosted by Canada next week.

"We will be discussing maritime interdiction", Hook said, raising the idea of an naval embargo to help enforce the already draconian United Nations sanctions on Kim's regime.

The administration had been due to hold a Cabinet-level meeting this week to sharpen its economic and military options for dealing with North Korea.

But Hook said Washington remained in contact with China about enforcing the sanctions and pressuring Kim, and that both Beijing and Moscow would be briefed after the talks.

Trump discussed North Korea in a call Thursday with French President Emmanuel Macron of France.
