WASHINGTON (Reuters) - US President Donald Trump expressed his hope for a second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Wednesday, after the latter said he was willing to meet the White House leader at any time.
"I also look forward to seeing Kim, who is well aware that North Korea has great economic fundamentals," Trump said in a tweet on Twitter.
Trump's tirade came the day after the North Korean leader said in a New Year speech that he was ready to meet Trump at any time, warning at the same time that Pyongyang would not hesitate to change its approach if Washington kept sanctions on its regime.
Kim's warning came a year after the diplomatic rapprochement between Pyongyang and Washington began.
"If the United States does not abide by its promise to the world, we may have no choice but to look at a new way to protect our sovereignty and our interests," Kim said in a speech broadcast on state television.
Kim was ready to meet Trump at any time, saying: "I am ready to sit down again with the US president at any time in the future and I will make efforts in every way to achieve a result welcomed by the international community."
But Kim stressed that the United States and South Korea should not conduct joint military exercises, describing the drill as a "source of tension." Ending / 25
