President Donald Trump suggested in an interview Thursday that he has developed a positive relationship with the North Korean leader, but declined to say whether they have spoken. "I'm a very flexible person".

Trump told the newspaper a decision by the United States and South Korea to postpone military exercises until after next month's Winter Olympics in South Korea "sends a good message to North Korea".

"You'll see that a lot with me", he said.

Asked if he had spoken with Kim, Trump was evasive: "I'm not saying I have or haven't".

Delegates from North Korea and South Korea meet in Paju, South Korea on January 9. On Wednesday, Trump said he didn't expect a war in a White House news conference, and indicated he was pleased by direct talks between Pyongyang and Seoul.

The expert said the diplomats noted that new elements appearing in South Korea-U.S. joint drills over the past few months have elicited growing concern that "zero hour" is not too far away, referring particularly to the air exercise Vigilant Ace, which involved 230 aircraft, including a large number of varied types of stealth aircraft.

The U.S. has not had formal negotiations with North Korea on its nuclear program since 2012.

Trump claimed credit Wednesday for the inter-Korean dialogue, saying North Korea was feeling the pressure of a USA -led campaign of sanctions over its nuclear weapons and missile development.

Earlier this week, it was reported the U.S.is considering a "bloody nose" strategy with North Korea that would involve "targeted strikes", as Independent Journal Review reportedly previously. Technically, South Korea and the USA remain at war with North Korea after the Korean War ended in 1953 with an armistice instead of a peace treaty.
