It is the first time for North Korean media to reiterate the government's official line since the meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un held earlier this week in Singapore.

"Hey, he is the head of a country and I mean he is the strong head", the president said. "Don't let anyone think anything different", Trump continued.

The president later told reporters in an impromptu news conference on the White House lawn he had given Kim a phone number to allow him to reach Trump directly.

President Donald Trump held an impromptu news conference outside the White House on Friday morning, covering everything from North Korea to the Russian Federation probe to President Obama.

The defence ministers of South Korea and the USA have discussed the future of their joint military drills after the U.S. president said they would be ending.

But Trump later chastised a reporter who asked about the remark, saying he was "kidding" and the reporter didn't "understand sarcasm".

Donald Trump made the surprise announcement following his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

North Korea sanctions remain until complete denuclearisation, says US
Kim Yong Nam is the head of the presidium of North Korea's Supreme Assembly. He has the power to remove most State Department workers without oversight.

McDonald's to test alternative to plastic straws in some USA restaurants

Efforts to recover missing remains stalled more than a decade ago when USA officials couldn't guarantee the safety of American recovery teams sent into North Korea.

So, how exactly does Kim Jong Un - aka Trump's new buddy - treat "his people?"

Hosting Kim Yong Nam, North Korea's ceremonial head of state, Putin said the historic summit with the USA president was "without doubt just the first step towards a full-blown settlement". I can now call him.

However, Trump's critics have called the US' suspension of military exercises with South Korea in exchange for a vague commitment by Kim to denuclearize an extreme concession to the dictator.

In an off-the-cuff interview on the White House lawn, the United States president also "referred to Federal Bureau of Investigation leadership as "scum", denied rumours his wife Melania underwent facelift surgery, and suggested former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey should go to prison", the Daily Beast reports. We are afraid to sing, say, wear, or think what we want. "He was insane, a real nut job", Trump said, according to the Times.

China's foreign ministry issued a statement praising the resolve of Mr Trump and Mr Kim. "We have communication, it's a very good thing", Trump said.

But in January, North Korea reopened its hotline on the border with South Korea, signaling that it meant to reestablish relations after a year of provocative nuclear and missile tests.
