Trump: We have started talking with North Korea – Washington Examiner

President Trump said Tuesday that his administration has begun communicating with North Korean officials “at very high levels.”

“We’ve also started talking to North Korea directly,” Trump said said to reporters Tuesday during a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. “We have had direct talks at very high levels, extremely high levels with North Korea.”

The comments come after it was revealed last month that Trump was planning to accept a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to discuss denuclearization.
