Has North Korea's latest strategy stumped the United States?

North Korean state newspaper hails Kim

The Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang next month have always been overshadowed by geopolitical tensions, with the North repeatedly test-firing missiles it says are capable of reaching the USA mainland, and detonating its most powerful nuclear device to date. "I'm not saying I have or haven't".

"I understand that a lot of things are hard to negotiate prior to an election", Trump said.

"These activities underscore North Korea's continued efforts to maintain the Punggye-ri site's potential for future nuclear testing", it said.

Trump, who has repeatedly taunted and teased Kim and dubbed him "Little Rocket Man, sparked fears of a nuclear war and drew widespread condemnation last week when he used juvenile terms to brag that he commands a "more powerful" nuclear arsenal".

A high-profile meeting with the South in the truce village of Panmunjom was held Tuesday after more than two years of crisis over North Korea's nuclear weapons progress, beginning with the communist state's fourth nuclear test in January 2016.

Asked if he had spoken with Mr Kim, the President said cryptically: "I don't want to comment on it".

As such, North Korea's neighbors China and Russian Federation are not invited, and many have questioned the utility of a conference where such influential regional players are absent.

Kim, on the other hand, has charged that he would "tame the mentally deranged USA dotard with fire", referring to Trump.

In the Journal interview, Trump suggested his combative tweets are part of a broader strategy. "I could give you 20 examples".

President Trump also discussed NAFTA, saying re-negotiations might bring forth funding for the wall on the US border with Mexico to stop illegal immigration. The Trump nuclear-button tweet coincided with a surprise North Korean diplomatic approach to South Korea, for talks about a possible dispatch of a delegation to the winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang. You could give me 30.

Satellite imagery shows "significant tunneling" at North Korea's Punggye-ri nuclear test site, a report revealed Thursday. On December of 2016, he called Putin "very smart" and a few months later in an interview with Bill O'Reilly, Trump said "I do respect [Putin]".

North Korean diplomats are extremely serious about the possibility of war between North Korea and the United States, noting that the USA has already prepared for it for months, a Russian expert said Wednesday.
