It resulted in an agreement to resume military talks and North Korean participation in the Winter Olympics to be held in February in the South Korean county of PyeongChang.

Every time North Korean leader Kim Jong-un gleefully fired off another intercontinental ballistic missile, every time he promised to rain fire and brimstone on his mortal enemy, America, and then, when he tested another nuclear weapon, the response from U.S. President Donald Trump was nearly as frightening and freakish.

Trump also said that he probably has a "very good relationship" with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un but did not confirm or deny if he had spoken to the leader in Pyongyang.

President Trump said he may be open to a diplomatic meeting with North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un.

President Trump deserves "big credit" for talks between South Korea and North Korea this week, South Korean president Moon Jae-in told reporters Wednesday.

The Kremlin strongman congratulated the North Korean dictator, saying he had won the latest stand-off with the USA and South Korea.

On the trip, the U.S. vice president will also "review ICBM defense systems" in Alaska, and visit allies in Japan, the official said.

According to website 38 North, the test site's North Portal, where North Korea's last five nuclear tests were conducted, has remained dormant but tunnel excavation has been increased at its West Portal. North Korea has shown no willingness to discuss its nuclear weapons which pose an emerging threat to the American mainland, and it has stuck to its tough stance toward Washington while it tries to woo the South.

"The two issues - improving inter-Korean relations and resolving the North Korean nuclear issue - can not be separated", Moon said.

The head of the North Korea's delegation, Ri Son Gwon, shakes hands with his South Korean counterpart, Cho Myoung-gyon, after their meeting at the truce village of Panmunjom in the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas on January 9.

Moon's words came a day after both Koreas held their first meeting in two years, Efe news reported. Having underestimated North Korea's nuclear capabilities and misjudged the pace at which it developed its missile technology, the U.S. will be more anxious about containing the missile programme. "No, I don't expect that", Trump said in the news conference.

Some two months later, Tillerson indicated that the US was ready to speak with North Korea at any time and without preconditions.
