Kim Jong-un has finally broken his silence on US President Donald Trump’s tour of Asia.
The leader of the ‘rogue’ state has said Trump’s visit to the region highlights just how Trump is ‘begging’ for war.
The statement, made by North Korea’s state news agency, calls Trump a ‘destroyer of world peace’, according to The Daily Star.
A spokesman for the DPRK said:
Trump made his conceived attempt yet again to alienate our people from the government.
Trump, during his visit, laid bare his true nature as destroyer of world peace and stability and begged for a nuclear war on the Korean peninsula.
The state also said the purpose of the official visit by the US President was to demonise Kim Jong-un and heighten already strained international relations.

The statement continued:
His current trip to our surrounding region is a warmonger’s visit for confrontation to rid the DPRK of its self-defensive nuclear deterrence.
The DPRK’s possession of nuclear weapons was a righteous and inevitable choice to defend our national sovereignty and dignity and our people’s rights to existence and development from increased nuclear threats and blackmail by the US and its hostile moves against the DPRK.
Trump, on the other hand, has been notably less aggressive in his rhetoric towards the Hermit State, though has been stern in his warning about underestimating him and his administration.
His speech said:
I hope I speak not only for our countries, but for all civilised nations, when I say to the North: Do not underestimate us, and do not try us.
We will defend our common security, our shared prosperity and our sacred liberty. America does not seek conflict or confrontation, but we will never run from it.
History is filled with discarded regimes that have foolishly tested America’s resolve.
Trump has been much less incendiary in his comments toward Kim Jong-un recently, after North Korea reportedly sent an incredibly chilling warning to Putin regarding a nuclear attack on the US.
Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin, passed the info straight to Washington, which has resulted in a change of approach from President Donald Trump.
However, officials from the Kremlin have denied any such knowledge of a personal correspondence between Kim Jong-un and their Commander in Chief, Vladimir Putin.
The message was apparently conveyed between the two nations by a letter, though the existence of such a letter has been denied officially.
This comes as Putin meets with Trump in Vietnam today – all with the spectre of nuclear war hanging over their heads.
This wouldn’t be the first time letters have been used as forms of communication from North Korea.
Russia’s Chairwoman of the Federation Council, Valentina Matvienko, admitted she’d received a letter directly addressed to Putin just last month.
Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me "old," when I would NEVER call him "short and fat?" Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!

Judging by the reaction of the DPRK to Trump’s presence in the region, it doesn’t seem Kim has the same desire.
It seems there’s some truth in the claims about the de-escalation of correspondence between Donald Trump and the leader of the DPRK, after Trump tweeted he one day wanted to be friends with Kim.
