Monday’s Yomiuri wrote that President Trump told reporters on Saturday that he recently received a “nice note” from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. The paper wrote that although the President did not disclose its contents, he reportedly stressed that he maintains good relations with the DPRK leader. Noting that the President sent a letter to Kim Jong Un last month as part of his efforts to seek cooperation with foreign leaders in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, the paper speculated that the latest communication might have been a reply from Kim. However, North Korea’s state-run Korean Central News Agency reported on Sunday on a statement by a foreign ministry spokesperson saying that the supreme leadership did not send a letter recently to the U.S. President. Monday’s Mainichi ran a similar Kyodo report.
