Nagpadala umano ng personal na liham si US President Donald Trump kay Kim Jong-un kung saan pinuri nito ang ginagawang hakbang ng North Korean leader sa paglaban sa coronavirus.
Sa isang pahayag, sinabi ng kapatid ng lider na si Kim Yo Jong na inilahad umano ni Trump sa sulat ang plano nitong patibayin pa ang relasyon ng Washington at Pyongyang.
Inihayag din umano ni Trump ang kanyang intensyon na pakikipagtulungan upang labanan ang coronavirus pandemic.
“We regard it as a good judgment and proper action for the U.S. president to make efforts to keep the good relations he had with our Chairman by sending a personal letter again at a time as now when big difficulties and challenges lie in the way of developing the bilateral relations, and think that this should be highly estimated,” wika ni Kim Yo Jong.
“In the letter, [Trump] also explained his plan to propel the relations between the two countries of the DPRK and the U.S. and expressed his intent to render cooperation in the anti-epidemic work, saying that he was impressed by the efforts made by the Chairman to defend his people from the serious threat of the epidemic,” dagdag nito.
Nagbabala naman si Kim Yo Jong na bagama’t maganda ang personal na ugnayan ni Trump at ng kanyang kapatid, hindi raw nito ibig sabihin na nasa maayos na kalagayan ang relasyon ng dalawang bansa.
“Fortunately, the personal relations between the two top leaders are not as far away as the relations of confrontation between the two countries, and they are very excellent,” anang opisyal.
“But the relations between the DPRK and the U.S. and their development should not be judged in haste in the light of the personal relations between the two top leaders, and furthermore, neither predictions nor expectations should be made based on them,” pahayag pa nito.
“As they are the close relations between the two men representing the two countries, they would have positive impact but nobody knows how much the personal relations would change and lead the prospective relations between the two countries, and it is not something good to make hasty conclusion or be optimistic about it.”
