North Korea responds to Trump’s suggested meeting saying it is ‘interesting’

There seems to be a real fascination with Kim Jong Un's security and how exactly he goes about his business while paranoid of assassination attempts and decapitation strikes from afar and from potential competition within his own circle of power. It turns out that Kim doesn't just have a Secret Service-like agency tasked with his protection. He has his own 100,000 man army with a stove-pipe command structure that reports directly to him. This elite unit is known as Guard Command.

Trump plans to meet North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un at the Korean Demilitarized Zone//AIWA

US President Donald Trump indicated he would be willing to meet North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un at the Korean Demilitarized Zone. In response, North Korea released a statement saying it was a “very interesting suggestion”, but that they haven’t received an official proposal.

After some very important meetings, including my meeting with President Xi of China, I will be leaving Japan for South Korea (with President Moon). While there, if Chairman Kim of North Korea sees this, I would meet him at the Border/DMZ just to shake his hand and say Hello(?)!

Trump says he’s willing to meet Kim Jong Un at the DMZ while visiting South Korea, touting his relationship with the North Korean leader. “It’s good to get along. If I didn’t become president, you’d be right now in a war with North Korea, that’s a certainty”

Asked about his tweet about meeting Sunday at the DMZ with Kim Jong Un. Says he just put out “a feeler.” Not sure Kim is available. But wants to see the DMZ and thought it might be a chance for a brief meeting with Kim. Says North Korea has more US remains to return.

In offering to meet Kim Jong Un, spoke with evident envy about the role of the DMZ as a border wall between North & South Korea. “That’s what they call a border. Nobody goes through that border,” he said. He didn’t mention the 800,000 landmines in the DMZ.
