The statement comes after Trump held talks at the White House with visiting the North Korean vice chairman on bilateral relations and denuclearization.

Having received Trump's letter, Kim expressed great satisfaction, the Korean Central News Agency reported.

Kim also praised Trump's interest in holding the second North Korea-US summit, according to the news agency.
