Kim-Trump personal relations not enough to resume US-North Korea talks

North Korea received birthday greetings to its leader Kim Jong Un from US President Donald Trump, but their personal relationship is not enough for a return to talks, according to a statement published on Saturday by state news agency KCNA.

While Kim could personally like Trump, he will not lead his country on the basis of personal feelings, Kim Kye Gwan, an adviser to the North Korean foreign ministry, said in the statement. He said no talks were possible unless the US accepted North Korea's demands, adding that Pyongyang will not give up its nuclear facilities in return for partial sanctions relief.
