Why was Kim Jong Un’s letter for Donald Trump so big?

Kim Jong Un is reportedly offering to open an American burger chain in North Korea as a

A meeting with Trump would be a huge win for Kim, and insiders say the USA and North Korea aren't close to reaching a deal that would make it worth the US's time.

"We talked about it".

Per the AP: "The huge letter is just part of meticulous steps taken by North Korea to present Kim as a legitimate global statesman who is reasonable and capable of negotiating solutions and making deals, analysts say".

The current rapprochement on the peninsula was triggered by the games, to which the North sent athletes, cheerleaders, and his sister as an envoy.

But last Thursday, Mr Trump sensationally cancelled the historic meeting, citing North Korea's "tremendous anger and open hostility" and apparently dashing any hope of a truce between the US and South Korea.

US President Donald Trump said Friday he will meet North Korea's Kim Jong Un as originally scheduled on June 12 for a historic summit after extraordinary Oval Office talks with a top envoy from Pyongyang.

Meanwhile, Kim Jong Un and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov met in Pyongyang Thursday, according to North Korea's official state news agency.

The two nations allegedly sent representatives to stay in a hotel in Amman, Jordan in next door rooms. Assad's government has recaptured all rebel-held territory near the capital this year.

Washington Post's Tokyo bureau chief, Anna Fifield, pondered if this was a play on Trump's past claim that he has a "much bigger" nuclear button than Kim.

Trump is scheduled to meet Kim Jong Un in Singapore on June 12, which will mark the first time a sitting USA president will meet face-to-face with a North Korean leader.

North Korea has made advances in missile technology in recent years but Trump has sworn not to allow it to develop nuclear missiles that could hit the United States.

'I think it'll be a process.

"They are trying to set low expectations hoping for something more but not being in the position of walking into the meeting with something that is going to get them solidly in the direction of nuclear dismantlement". "We're going to start a process".

The letter appeared to be in response to a comment from Trump last Thursday when he canceled the summit, accusing Pyongyang of hostility, but urged the North Korean leader to "call me or write" if he had a change of heart. The North Korean envoy hand-delivered a letter to Trump from the North Korean leader, after a day of talks in NY with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. 'We'll be in Singapore. "Hey, wouldn't it be wonderful if we walked out and everything was settled all of a sudden from sitting down for a couple of hours", Trump said.

An advance team, led by deputy chief of staff Joe Hagin, has held meetings with the North Korean team in Singapore this week.
