Kim Jong Un's sister to visit DMZ separating two Koreas, Seoul says

WASHINGTON - Kim Jong Nam, the half-brother of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un who was killed in Malaysia in 2017, had been an informant for the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday.

"I think it's exactly where we were a year ago", said Darcie Draudt, a North Korea researcher and visiting scholar at Seoul's Yonsei University. Last year, the American president called one of Kim's letters "a handsome piece of art".

The two sides haven't held working-level talks in months and North Korea hasn't responded to multiple requests to restart the negotiations, according to USA officials.

According to the newspaper's source, U.S. intelligence agencies at first felt relief that the CIA's interaction with Kim was not exposed in the immediate aftermath of his death.

The North Korean leader "would have considered [Kim Jong Nam] talking to American spies a treacherous act", Fifield writes in The Great Successor, "But Kim Jong Nam provided information to them, meeting his handlers in Singapore and Malaysia".

At the time, Cheong Wa Dae announced the meeting after it had taken place.

It's not the first time Trump has praised Kim for his "beautiful" letter-writing skills. Instead, Trump mentioned he "appreciated" the "very nice letter" he received from Kim recently, adding coyly, "Someday you'll be reading about it".

Kim Yo Jong's visit came exactly a year after her brother and U.S. President Donald Trump agreed at the first U.S. This resulted in him traveling to Pyongyang in 2000 with Lee for the first summit of the leaders of the two Koreas.

But when asked by a reporter if he is committed to not spying on North Korea, Trump clarified, "No, it's not what I meant".

Earlier Tuesday, U.S. national security adviser John Bolton said a third U.S.

While she became the first member of the ruling family to visit Seoul and accompanied Kim Jong Un in his summits with Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping, she's also performed mundane tasks, such as helping the leader extinguish a cigarette during a train stop in China.

However, he warned that it could lose steam if the current, apparent stalemate in denuclearization and peace talks is further drawn out. Chung said he didn't carry a message from Moon either.

Moon said Kim and Trump should meet in the near future to maintain the momentum for dialogue. They had been accused of colluding with four North Koreans who prosecutors said had fled the country the day of the attack.

Citing the Basic Treaty, and the two Germanys' cooperation in dealing with natural disasters and environmental issues, Moon said he hopes for similar measures to be applied on the Korean Peninsula.
