US President reaffirms good relationship with North Korean leader

US President Donald Trump said on Monday that his relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un remains very good and strong, while also noting that it may change depending on how Kim will approach their stalled denuclearization talks.

Describing Kim as smart and tough, Trump said he believes there is still trust between him and the North Korean leader and that Kim is willing to take steps toward denuclearization in the interest of economic prosperity for North Korea.

Trump's statement in an interview with ABC News came amid hopes for the resumption of denuclearization negotiations which have been stalled since the second Trump-Kim summit ended with no agreement in February in Hanoi.
