South Korea said Mr Trump denied perusing a "bloody nose" strategy in his call with Mr Moon this week.

"The source of the threat to the global community, the source of illegal actions, the source of the nuclearization, is North Korea", she said.

But in recent weeks there has been an apparent rapprochement, with the two Koreas meeting for the first time in two years and Pyongyang agreeing to send athletes to the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in South Korea.

She said forcing the precondition that North Korea relinquish its nuclear program would be unlikely and self-defeating, adding that the U.S. must recognize Pyongyang's nuclear weapons development is informed by decades of United States attempts to overthrow foreign governments.

Despite the insults and bloodcurdling threats he's traded with Kim Jong-un, he suggested in an interview that the two leaders could have a positive relationship.

In an apparent shift on Wednesday, Trump said he might be willing to have dialogue with North Korea when it's "appropriate".

"In order to destroy an important part of North Korea's nuclear and missile programs, you have to really undertake a major war against North Korea nearly".

"All our state-of-the-art strategic weapons like atomic bombs, hydrogen bombs and intercontinental ballistic rockets are completely targeting the United States".

The rogue regime's Rodong Sinmum newspaper took issue with the January 3 tweet where Trump wrote that he has a "bigger & more powerful" nuclear button than North Korea's Kim.

The war of words increased fears of a confrontation between the USA and North Korea, which was underscored over the weekend when a false alert dispatched to cellphones in Hawaii warned of an incoming ballistic missile. And South Korea-brilliantly makes-we have a trade deficit with South Korea of $31 billion a year. According to the North Koreans, the book's sales are driven by "rapidly surging anti-Trump sentiments in the global community" and Trump is being "massively humiliated worldwide" by its success, hinting at his ultimate "political demise".

The Journal responded to the president's accusations by posting its own audio recording and a statement standing by its understanding of what he had said. U.S. President Donald Trump has vowed to retaliate, should such an assault occur. And in repeated speeches in Asia, Trump has referred to Abe by the very chummy "Shinzo" while always sticking with 'President Moon.'

The back-and-forth between Kim and Trump has been ongoing for several months as the isolated country has continued to carry out missile and nuclear tests, in defiance of worldwide pressure and United Nations resolutions.
