An editorial in DPRK Today welcomed Trump's proposal to hold talks with Kim Jong-Un, and said that Trump could help bring about an end to the country's 'Yankee go home' policy of hostility with the US.
"There are many positive aspects to Trump's 'inflammatory policies'," wrote Han Yong-mook, who described himself as a Chinese North Korean scholar.
"Trump said he will not get involved in the war between the South and the North, isn't this fortunate from North Korea' perspective?"
Trump in an interview on May 17 said that he would talk to Kim to dissuade him from going forward with the nuclear programme. "I would speak to him, I would have no problem speaking to him," he had said.
However, So Se Pyong, the country's ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva said that 'Trump's call for speaking with the North Korean chief was just a political gimmick.'
