North Korea diplomats say attack on USA would be 'suicidal'

In-Bum Chun, a retired South Korean general and former deputy commander of the First Republic of Korea Army, warns that North Korea's soldiers are so brainwashed that any conflict would turn into a fight to the death.

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

Writing on the US-based website 38 North, Vorontsov said North Korean diplomats the foreign ministry are certain that the USA is determined to wage a war against their country even when Seoul is oblivious to Trump's administration's motives. Trump reportedly pressed, asking where "your people" were from.

It was her first time meeting the president, and when she was done briefing, he had a question for her.

Tensions have receded dramatically on the peninsula since North and South have held high-level talks at Panmunjom, and North Korea agreed to send its athletes to the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

Trump and Kim have traded bellicose rhetoric and crude insults over the previous year, as North Korea has accelerated weapons tests and appears on the cusp of having a nuclear-tipped missile that could strike the US mainland. Kim called the 71-year-old American president "the mentally deranged US dotard".

In the wake of President Trump's comment about wanting to stop immigration from "shithole countries", NBC News did a deep dive into Trump's history of racist comments. He writes in Foreign Affairs that North Korea's nuclear program is closely tied to the legitimacy of the Kim regime.

But diplomats also said they are not completely knowledgeable of how North Korea could achieve nuclear parity with a powerful United States.

Yonhap reported Thursday North Korea's religious council strongly condemned a U.S. State Department designation of the regime as a country of particular concern under the International Religious Freedom Act.

A White House statement said the two leaders discussed Macron's recent visit to China and committed to continue to apply pressure on North Korea.
