Kim Jong Un sang high praise of Donald Trump on Thursday (January 24), saying that he believes in the U.S. President and his way of thinking.
According to state media, the North Korean leader said he would trust Trump's approach, after receiving a letter from him about the two leaders' upcoming summit.
This comes after talks in Washington last week, where a North Korean envoy met with President Trump.
The White House then announced that a second summit would be held at the end of February.
(SOUNDBITE) (English) UNITED STATES PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SAYING: "Kim Jong Un is looking very forward to it and so am I.
We've made a lot of progress that has not been reported by the media but we have made a lot of progress." No word on location yet, but it follows Kim and Trump's landmark meeting in Singapore last June, in which they promised to work towards North Korea's denuclearization.
Although progress since then has been patchy.
Earlier this month, Kim Jong Un even warned North Korea could go down a "new path" if U.S. sanctions and pressure continued.
But on Thursday, South Korean media reported Kim had made contact with South Korea's President, promising a 'groundbreaking' measure towards denuclearization.
