North Korean leader Kim Jong Un still has faith in US President Donald Trump's commitment to ending their nations' hostile relations, but he's frustrated by questions about his willingness to denuclearise and wants his "goodwill measures" to be met in kind, South Korean officials said Thursday.
Kim emphasised that his "trust in Trump remains unchanged" despite the difficulties, Chung said, and expressed his intention to work closely with the U.S. to achieve denuclearisation "in the first official term of President Trump".
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's faith in Donald Trump remains "unchanged" and he wants to denuclearise the Korean peninsula during the USA president's first term, South officials say.
While Trump and Kim Jong Un pledged during their historic summit in June to "work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", they didn't define what that meant or offer a timetable for carrying it out.
"Looks like Kim is trying to wash away worries that talks could stall or fail, knowing well that Washington is losing patience", said Koh Yu-hwan, a professor of North Korean Studies at Dongguk University in Seoul.
Kim emphasised that his "trust in Trump remains unchanged" despite the difficulties, Chung said, and expressed his intention to work closely with the United States to achieve denuclearisation "in the first official term of President Trump".
South Korea's liberal government is keen on keeping engagement with North Korea alive.
US officials involved in the latest negotiations have said North Korea has refused to even start discussions about defining denuclearisation or other key terms such as "verifiable" and "irreversible", and has insisted the United States must first agree to simultaneous steps to reduce economic pressure. The content was not disclosed of either of the messages exchanged by South Korean officials who visited Pyongyang and met with Kim this week.

But Mr Kim apparently disagreed, insisting to Mr Chung that the steps taken by his country so far, including the dismantlement of a nuclear test site, are significant and meaningful. "Chairman Kim especially stressed that he has never talked negatively about President Trump to his staff or anyone else".
The next big event between South and North Korea will take place over three days and two nights, . from September 18th through the 20th in Pyongyang. We haven't had any nuclear tests, we haven't had any missile tests, which we consider a great thing.
Pompeo declined to comment Thursday on what the next steps are for US diplomacy with North Korea.
Mr Chung also cited Mr Kim as saying that North Korea is unable to conduct any more nuclear tests, despite several reports that the regime is secretly continuing its nuclear programme.
"The countries agreed to review the implementation of the Panmunjom Declaration and discuss the future direction of its implementation, and to discuss practical ways to establish lasting peace and ensure joint prosperity on the Korean Peninsula, especially denuclearize the Korean Peninsula", he told a nationally televised press conference. Kim also praised and expressed confidence in Mr. Trump, according to South Korean officials.
The two Koreas technically remain at war as the 1950-53 war ended only with an armistice, not a peace treaty.
North Korea accused the U.S. of making "unilateral and gangster-like" demands for denuclearization and hampering talks on the end-of-war declaration. The U.S. president gave Moon's envoys a message to deliver to Kim Jong Un, who gave the officials a statement to send to the White House.
