Trump sees 'good energy' in inter-Korean talks

South Korea said Trump and Moon said that the dialogue between South and North Korea could lead to talks between United States and North Korea for the denuclearisation.

"Without our attitude, that would have never happened", Trump said.

"You'll see that a lot with me", Trump said of his belligerent remarks towards the North Korean leader, but added "then all of a sudden somebody's my best friend. I'm a very flexible person".

The paper reported that Trump did not give any inkling if the two bitter rivals have had established any contacts as of yet.

The prospect of military confrontation has been magnified in the past year as Trump and Kim have traded bellicose rhetoric and crude insults, as the North has conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear detonation and three tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles that now put the US mainland in North Korea's range. Over the past few month Trump had hostile exchanges Kim, who has repeatedly been mocked by Trump as a "rocket man" over his weapons programs.

CNN quoted Trump as saying: "I don't want to comment on it".

The reality and magnitude of this threat to humanity explains why it was such a huge relief this week when North Korea accepted an invitation from South Korea to join in its Winter Olympics next month.

Just last week, the president bragged about the size of his "nuclear button" and how it's "much bigger & more powerful" than North Korea's.

A grand coalition would also leave the controversial Alternative for Germany as the lead opposition party in parliament. A new coalition government would see Merkel at the helm of Europe's biggest economy for a fourth term in office.

"A lot of good talks are going on right now, a lot of good energy".

According to the White House, Moon briefed Trump on the outcome of the inter-Korean talks that took place on Tuesday for the first time in two years. On Wednesday, Trump said he didn't expect a war in a White House news conference, and indicated he was pleased by direct talks between Pyongyang and Seoul.

The IOC will host talks in Switzerland on January 20 to discuss details about North Korea's participation at the Games.

Trump's remarks have shelved his often-bellicose rhetoric on Kim Jong-un, North Korea's top leader.

President Donald Trump predicted the crisis between the USA and North Korea would be resolved without war, tamping down tensions that he has helped stoke in the region.

"We can not say talks are the sole answer", Moon added.

Pyongyang and Seoul held their first high-level meeting on Tuesday in two years.
