President Trump has left the 10-day summer vacation today, and has made a stance on the issues of North Korea and Japan's economic retaliation. First, North Korea revealed that it received another beautiful letter from Kim Jong Un. Kim said he doesn't like the US-Korea Combined Training, which begins tomorrow.
First of all, I'm correspondent Chung, Jeong-hyung in Washington.
Trump says he received a letter from Kim Jong Un in person and said it was very beautiful and positive.
[Trump / US President: I think we will have another meeting with Chairman Kim. I wrote a very beautiful three-letter letter. It is a beautiful letter from beginning to end.]
Kim explained in detail the dissatisfaction with the ROK-US training in his letter.
[Trump / U.S. President Kim does not like the ROK-US training. We do small training, but he doesn't like it. I wrote this in a letter.]
He repeatedly stated that he did not like ROK-US combined training due to cost concerns.
[Trump / US President: I never like ROK-US combined training. Because I hate paying for training. We need to get the training back and tell it to Korea.]
Kim Jong-un responded to the chairman's negative stance on ROK-US combined training, even though he would hand over training costs to the Korean government.
In addition, North Korea has repeatedly said it has not had a nuclear test or a long-range missile launch in North Korea.
Kim's letter says President Trump's positive response has increased the likelihood that the two sides will resume working-level negotiations after the ROK-US Combined Training.
