N.Korea's Kim invited Trump to visit Pyongyang in August, says report

N. Korea expects US talks once 'threats are removed

N. Korea expects US talks once 'threats are removed

"What Kang meant when she confirmed a letter earlier was the letter that Trump tweeted August 10th", the foreign ministry said in a statement.

North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un sent a letter to President Donald in August detailing his willingness to meet the United States leader for yet another summit, a South Korean newspaper reported Sunday.

A senior official from the North's foreign ministry said Monday that "discussion of denuclearization may be possible when threats and hurdles endangering our system security and obstructing our development are clearly removed beyond all doubt".

The U.S. president had said in early August that Kim had sent him a "very handsome letter" that mostly complained "about the ridiculous and expensive" joint military drills between the U.S. and South Korea, adding that Kim had apologized for recent short-range missile tests.

It's not clear whether Trump has responded to either letter, according to the report.

Last week, Trump went so far as to accuse Bolton of scaring Kim away from negotiations by mentioning the "Libya model" past year in discussing what an agreement to denuclearize North Korea might look like.

Their first two meetings were formal summits, the second of which, in Vietnam in February, broke down after they failed to narrow the gap between US demands for North Korean denuclearisation and a North Korean demand for relief from sanctions.

Ric Ocasek, singer for The Cars, dies at 75
NBC reports that around 4 p.m. local time, police received a call of an unconscious male at his townhouse on East 19th Street. Their video for "Double Life" was the 21st video ever played on the new cable channel, according to VH1.

The pair agreed to restart working-level dialogue during an impromptu meeting at the Demilitarized Zone dividing the 2 Koreas in June, and Pyongyang last week offered to hold those talks in late September, a move the USA said was "encouraging".

Despite the summer letters and June's historic border meeting, North Korea has continued to test-fire short-range missiles.

The White House offered no immediate comment on the report.

North Korea last week agreed to return to talks at a "time and place to be agreed late in September", state media Korean Central News Agency said, citing vice foreign minister Choe Son Hui.

Trump subsequently said he would be willing to meet Kim at some point later this year.

Kang said it could be "too much to expect" that Trump and Kim would meet before any working-level talks.
