As a result of Chinese help so far, Trump said he has not been tough on China as he would like to be.

Moon credited Trump with having "made a huge contribution to make inter-Korean talks happen [and] I'd like to express my gratitude". "I'm a very flexible person", Trump added. A lot of good energy...

The paper reported that Trump did not give any inkling if the two bitter rivals have had established any contacts as of yet.

There was no immediate comment from the White House on the call, although Washington welcomed Tuesday's talks as a first step toward solving the crisis over North Korea's programme to develop nuclear missiles capable of reaching the United States.

Mr. Trump called Kim "short and fat" on Twitter in November and has previously called him "rocket man" and a "bad dude" and a "maniac". "I don't want to comment on it-I don't want to comment, I'm not saying I have or I haven't".

In December, Tillerson offered to open up a dialogue without preconditions, saying "let's just meet, and we can talk about the weather if you want". But with the North's impending participation in the Olympics, which will be held in the South in February, both re-opened the cross-border hotline recently. If the attack goes according to plan, the USA could deny North Korea the ability to research and develop its missile or nuclear programs by destroying elements of it with a kinetic strike.

President Moon briefed President Trump in a phone call on the talks held Tuesday between North and South Korea, their 1st in more than 2 years.

"With all of the failed "experts" weighing in, does anybody really believe that talks and dialogue would be going on between North and South Korea right now if I wasn't firm, strong and willing to commit our total "might" against the North", Trump tweeted.

He also pledged support for the top USA goal in the region, the "complete denuclearization" of North Korea.

"This is a very positive start to the New Year for the global Olympic movement and for long-term peace on the Korean peninsula", said the President of the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA), Sheikh Ahmad Al Fahad Al Sabah of this week's talks.

Interested in North Korea?

The two Koreas are likely to hold working-level talks next week to further discuss the issue before a January 20 meeting to be chaired by International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach at the IOC headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland.
