WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump said on Tuesday talks with North Korea were making progress, adding he was personally responsible for averting conflict with the nuclear-armed country.

“Many good conversations with North Korea-it is going well!” he tweeted. “In the meantime, no Rocket Launches or Nuclear Testing in 8 months. All of Asia is thrilled. Only the opposition party, which includes the Fake News, is complaining. If not for me, we would now be at War with North Korea!”

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will leave for North Korea on Thursday seeking agreement on a plan for the country’s denuclearisation, despite mounting doubts about Pyongyang’s willingness to abandon a weapons programme that threatens the United States and its allies.

In announcing Pompeo’s travel plans on Monday, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the United States was “continuing to make progress” in talks with North Korea.
