The DPRK leader claims that his strong and special friendship with Trump will be the magical force that will give the will for progress in DPRK-US relations.
The tone of DPRK leader Kim Jong-un’s personal letters to U.S. President Donald Trump turned out to be extremely friendly, despite the hostile official rhetoric and poor relations between the two countries. In a letter dated December 25, 2018, the DPRK leader recalled his meeting with Trump in Singapore.
“Even now, I cannot forget that historic moment when I firmly shook Your Excellency’s hand in this beautiful and sacred place, which the whole world was watching with great interest. I hope I will be honored to relive that day,” the letter said.
Then Kim Jong-un writes: “On the threshold of the New Year’s Eve, the whole world will definitely see (in the not so distant future) how Your Excellency and I will hold another historic meeting like a scene from a fantastic movie.
Also published is a letter dated June 10, 2019, in which Kim Jong-un congratulates Trump on his upcoming birthday and remembers his meetings again.
“Like the short time we spent together a year ago in Singapore, every minute we shared 103 days ago in Hanoi was a moment of glory that remains a precious memory for me,” the letter said.
The DPRK leader claims that his strong and special friendship with Trump will be that magical force that will give the will for progress in DPRK-US relations. He believes that one day they will meet again to give mutual trust another chance.
“And he is likely to be inscribed in history as another fantastic chapter. I assure Your Excellency that my respect for you will never diminish,” emphasizes Kim Jong-un. The letter ends with birthday greetings and best wishes to the Trump family.
Recall that Trump received a letter from Kim Jong-un on August 10, 2019. In particular, the U.S. president said that the DPRK leader “very nicely said that he would like to meet and start negotiations as soon as the joint U.S.-South Korea exercises are over”. According to Trump, in the long letter of Kim Jong-un, there is also a “small apology” for testing the short-range missiles.
