Kim Jong Un Invites President Trump to Pyongyang in Letter

North Korean President Kim Jong Un sent President Trump towards the end of August that contained an invitation for him to go to Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea for talks on denuclearization and sanctions relief.

I don’t know if the Secret Service would approve of that but if they did, Trump would be the first president ever to go there. This would be the fourth meeting between the two leaders and undoubtedly the Democrats will criticize him for going, but if Obama had done it, they would demand he get a second Nobel Peace prize for it.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un invited U.S. President Donald Trump to visit Pyongyang in a letter sent in August amid stalled denuclearisation talks, a South Korean newspaper reported on Monday, citing diplomatic sources.

Kim, in the letter sent in the third week of August, spoke of his “willingness” for a third summit and extended an invitation for Trump to visit the North Korean capital of Pyongyang, the Joongang Ilbo newspaper reported, citing an unidentified source.

Trump on Aug. 9 said he had received a “very beautiful letter” from Kim.

But U.S. officials have not said anything about a second letter in August.

Trump and Kim have met three times since June last year to discuss ways to resolve a crisis over North Korea’s missile and nuclear programmes, but substantive progress has been scant.

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