President Trump sent a letter to Kim Jong Un to offer help in North Korea’s battle against the coronavirus, Kim’s sister said Sunday, but she warned it wasn’t enough to improve relations.
The United States and North Korea are at loggerheads over the reclusive state’s nuclear weapons program. Trump has attempted to restart negotiations by cultivating a personal relationship with Kim.
“We view such a personal letter of President Trump as a good example showing the special and firm personal relations with Chairman Kim Jong Un,” said Kim Yo Jong, the leader’s sister and a senior official of the ruling party. Her statement was published by North Korea’s official Korean Central News Agency.
