North Korea’s Kim wishes Trump for quick recovery from coronavirus

North Korea leader Kim Jong-un on Friday wished US President Donald Trump a quick recovery from coronavirus, North Korean state media said on Saturday.

“He sincerely hoped that they (Donald and Melania Trump) would be recovered as soon as possible. He hoped they will surely overcome it. He sent warm greetings to them,” the Korean Central News Agency was reported.

Trump and Kim developed an unprecedented relationship, staging the first meetings between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader, and Trump once declared that they “fell in love” after exchanging letters.

Efforts to press North Korea to give up its nuclear program in exchange for the lifting of sanctions stalled after those meetings failed to lead to a denuclearisation deal, but the two leaders have continued to trade messages.
