He stated, “All of this change that we are witnessing right now was possible because of the President of the United States decided to have the first ever summit with the leader of North Korea in 70 years of their history. And all of my praise goes to President Trump.”

“Chairman Kim has unwavering trust and expectations for President Trump and he is also aware that the complete denuclearization of North Korea at such a major feat can only be achieved by someone like President Trump. So Chairman Kim actually wants to achieve the denuclearization of North Korea with President Trump within his first term in office. And he has expressed this commitment, this desire on many occasions too,” President Moon said.

He also discussed his relationship with President Trump during the interview. He called Trump “more than a friend.” (RELATED: South Korean President Moon Jae-in Reveals He Considers President Trump ‘More Than A Friend’)
