Aslıhan DOĞRU -TDO- US President Donald Trump sent a letter to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un to offering help fighting the coronavirus outbreak.
Donald Trump has said he is impressed by Kim's efforts to protect his people from the threat of corona viruses and are ready for cooperation.
The letter also included a plan for advancing ties between the countries, according to a statement from Kim’s sister, Kim Yo Jong, that was published by state-run Korean Central News Agency.
A senior White House official confirmed that Trump sent a letter to Kim.
Although they are strained, the letter is a sign of private and very tight personal relations between the two leaders, and Trump is looking forward to maintaining communication with North Korean leader Kim, he said.
Sending the letter was “a good judgment and proper action,” Kim Jong-un said in the statement. “Fortunately, the personal relations between the two top leaders are not as far away as the relations of confrontation between the two countries.”
North Korea says there has been no cases of coronavirus in the country, but some foreign experts warn that humanitarian catastrophe is possible due to inadequate health infrastructure in the country.
