North Korea slams Trump's 'warmonger' Asia tour: State media

North Korea slams Trump's 'warmonger' Asia tour: State media

Trump's visit to Beijing last week Xi reiterated that China would strive for the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula but offered no hint it would change tack on North Korea, with which it fought side by side in the 1950-53 Korean war against USA -led forces.

Trump attempted a symbolic stare-down of Kim this week at the heavily fortified border that separates North and South Korea, but heavy fog forced the cancellation of his plans.

Trump's Asian tour has not been welcomed by the North Koreans, who view his visit to the region as a diplomatic effort to garner enough support to attack North Korea.

Mr Trump on Sunday also risked angering China, which he has sought as an ally in curbing North Korea's nuclear ambitions, by offering to mediate in a dispute over Beijing's claims to sovereignty in the South China Sea.

The ministry had been condemning Trump's visit to South Korea, accusing the U.S. president of "reckless remarks" and warmongering on his trip to the peninsula.

Tensions between North Korea and the USA have escalated in recent months following the rogue state's sixth nuclear bomb test on September 3, which earned more sanctions and condemnations from the UN.

Trump took an ambivalent stance over the weekend as he told reporters in Vietnam that he believes Russian President Vladimir Putin's denials of meddling but also stands with the United States intelligence agencies.


Chinese President Xi Jingping is scheduled to pay a state visit to the Vietnamese capital, Hanoi, later on Sunday.

Mr Trump will travel to Manila later on Sunday for the final stop on his Asia tour, before flying back to the US.

Former billionaire businessman Trump told a gathering of regional CEOs Friday he is open to doing business with Asia - but would no longer tolerate sweeping trade deals he brandished as unfair and harmful to American jobs.

"As to whether I believe it or not, I'm with our agencies, especially as now constituted", Trump said. "Every person in that room today", he said.

Also on the trip, Mr Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin several times on the margins of a summit in Vietnam.

Trump and Kim have engaged in name-calling in recent months as tensions between the two countries increase and North Korea continues expanding its nuclear program.

There he will hold talks with President Rodrigo Duterte, like Trump a famously outspoken world leader.
