Donald Trump praises ‘beautiful letters’ from Kim Jong

The North Korean foreign minister, Ri Yong-ho, said on Saturday his nation would never abandon its nuclear weapons if it could not trust the US.

On Saturday, North Korea's top diplomat Ri Yong Ho told the United Nations that Pyongyang doesn't see a "corresponding response" from the USA to its proposals to disarm.

Most flee via China, which has the longest border with North Korea and is easier to cross than the heavily protected Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) between the two Koreas.

The refusal to ease sanctions is deepening its mistrust of the U.S., Ri said, according to Reuters.

While Mr Ri spoke of a growing mistrust with the US, Mr Trump told supporters at a rally in West Virginia that he "fell in love" with Mr Kim during their historic summit in Singapore.

'Why has President Trump given up so much?' Mr Trump said in a mock news anchor voice, before adding: 'I didn't give up anything'.

Another woman accuses Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct
She spoke about the alleged incident in New Yorker magazine and has said she is willing to co-operate with any investigation. During the incident, Swetnick said she was "incapacitated without my consent and unable to fight off the boys raping me".

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Ri in NY and is planning to go to Pyongyang next month to continue discussions.

The canine gifts come after a September meeting between Moon and North Korea leader Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang, at which Kim agreed plans to shutter a missile-testing site and visit Seoul.

"The recent dramatic improvement of the North-South relations and the atmosphere of cooperation clearly show how decisive the role of trust-building can be", he said.

The pair met in-person for the first time in June for a historical Singapore summit which sought to officially commit Pyongyang to denuclearise the Korean peninsula.

"The perception that sanctions can bring us on our knees is a pipe dream of the people who are ignorant about us".

This includes at two UN Security Council (UNSC) meetings, chaired by Trump and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo respectively.

They face Chelsea in the EFL Cup tonight as they try to extend their barnstorming start to the season. Dominic Solanke is also in contention but Adam Lallana and Divock Origi are likely to miss out.

"We must not forget what's brought us this far: the historic worldwide pressure campaign that this council has made possible through the sanctions that it imposed", Pompeo said.

Earlier Saturday, North Korea's foreign minister said that there was "no way we will denuclearize" without concessions being made by the US.

Pompeo said some of those sanctions have been violated, including through ship-to-ship transfers of refined petroleum to North Korea and continued hiring of North Korean laborers overseas. Post-summit nuclear negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang were rocky and quickly settled into a stalemate. "But now we're at the dawn of a new day".

Although not legally binding, the North might also see an end-of-war declaration as a way to create political momentum that would steer discussions toward diplomatic recognition, economic benefits and security concessions.

In its Sunday edition, the Rodong Sinmun, the organ of Pyongyang's ruling Workers' Party of Korea, also called for easing of sanctions on the country.

North Korea's foreign minister has warned that there is "no way" his country will disarm while the United States continues to enforce sanctions.

Trump says Brett Kavanaugh accusations 'totally political'
The second claim against Kavanaugh dates to the 1983-84 academic year, which was his first at Yale University. The New Yorker published the claim from the second accuser, Deborah Ramirez , on September 23.

'The sanctions will stay in place until denuclearization occurs'.
