Speaking at a press conference, Mr Trump said: “We have certainly problems with North Korea.
“But a lot of good talks are going on right now, a lot of good energy, I see a lot of good energy.
“I like it very much what I’m seeing.”
He said: “I just spoke this morning with, as you know, the President, President Moon of South Korea, he had some really great meetings.
“His representatives had a great great meeting and I had some very good feedback from that.
“So hopefully a lot of good things are going to work out.”
North Korea continues to incite fears of World War 3 among the international community despite signs of positive development during diplomatic talks with Seoul.
President Trump has been trying to ramp up pressure on the rogue state to put a stop to Kim Jong-un’s nuclear programme.
The President has said that he is open to holding talks between the US and North Korea at the “appropriate time” and under the right “circumstances”.
But his vice-president, Mike Pence, issued a warning to Kim Jong-un. He said: “We will continue to bring maximum economic and diplomatic pressure to bear until North Korea abandons its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes that threaten the United Stated of America.”
