North Korea and South Korea held talks on Tuesday after a prolonged period of tension on the Korean peninsula over the North's missile and nuclear programmes.

The White House said on Wednesday that Trump was open to the us holding talks with North Korea "under the right circumstances", after South Korean President Moon Jae-In signaled a willingness to sit down with Kim.

Moon said North Korea will face harsher global sanctions and pressure if it resorts to fresh provocations, adding that "denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula is path to peace and our goal".

China has not done enough on the issue of North Korea for the US, President Donald Trump has said but appreciated the "great chemistry" he shares with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

A united front in favour of a meaningful diplomatic option may help U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson build his case for diplomacy against hawkish elements within the Trump administration, the source said.

Trump has been of late more open, on more than one occasion, to having a dialogue with North Korea. In addition to showing support for our US athletes, the Vice President will show his confidence in and appreciation for our USA military stationed in the region.

The final decision will be come on January 20th when the International Olympic Committee hosts talks in Lausanne, Switzerland, to discuss North Korea's participation at PyeongChang 2018.

Trump famously pushed back against the Kim's threat on Twitter.

During a briefing on recent discussions between North and South Korea, Moon "thanked President Trump for his influential leadership in making the talks possible", the statement said. The two sides also agreed to hold military talks in an attempt to prevent an accidental conflict on the peninsula.

"I probably have a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un", Trump told The Journal on Thursday.

"I think that Mr. Kim Jong Un has obviously won this round", Putin told Russian journalists at a televised meeting, Reuters reported.

"And you see in North Korea what's happening with North Korea all of a sudden".

It was predictable, if disappointing, that North Korea refused this week to discuss its nuclear ambitions.

Lee Woo-young, a professor at the University of North Korean Studies in Seoul, said Moon had been right to praise Trump.
