Trump receives another ‘beautiful’ letter from North Korea’s Kim Jong

Kim Jong Un's half brother was CIA informant - WSJ

In his remarks to the White House press pool on Tuesday, President Donald Trump gushed over his relationship with Kim Jong Un once again while promising the North Korean dictator that he won't allow the Central Intelligence Agency use informants against him.

North Korea continues to carry out state killings as a way of intimidating its citizens, campaigners said on Tuesday, although the number of executions may be declining in the face of mounting global pressure.

"I just received a handsome letter from Kim Jong Un". "I think that something will happen".

"Several former United States officials said the half-brother, who had lived outside of North Korea for many years and had no known power base in Pyongyang, was unlikely to be able to provide details of the secretive country's inner workings", the report said. The U.S. and South Korea also have blamed North Korea, but Malaysian officials never officially accused Pyongyang of involvement.

The newspaper cited an unnamed "person knowledgeable about the matter" for the claim and said many details of Kim Jong Nam's relationship with the USA spy agency remained unclear.

US President Donald Trump received a "beautiful" letter from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un on Monday and said he believes something "very positive" will come of nuclear talks with the country.

Kim Jong Nam was the eldest son in the current generation of North Korea's ruling family.

South Korea has accused the North of ordering the hit, which Pyongyang denies.

He earned a third match point when, unable to tackle Thiem's one-handed backhand, Djokovic sent a limp forehand into the net. Usually great at problem solving on the court, Djokovic's decision to continue with rushing to the net was baffling.

The CIA declined to comment to the WSJ.

The first-ever meeting between a North Korean leader and a sitting U.S. president took place on June 12 a year ago in Singapore, where Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump signed a vaguely-worded deal to achieve "complete denuclearisation".

"Kim Jong-nam provided information to them, usually meeting his handlers in Singapore or Malaysia".

In emails to a Japanese journalist obtained by North Korea's Chosun Ilbo newspaper in 2012, Kim suggested that the regime would collapse under his younger brother, who he said "resembles my grandfather", North Korean dictator and founder Kim Il-sung. "Kim Jong-un is still just a nominal figure and the members of the power elite will be the ones in actual power".

While Kim Jong Nam spent much of his life overseas after falling out of favour with his family, he was constantly aware of the monitoring presence of Pyongyang and obsessed by fears that he would get assassinated, South Korean officials have said.

Two women were charged with poisoning Kim by smearing his face with liquid VX, a banned chemical weapon.

"Several former USA officials said the half brother, who had lived outside of North Korea for many years and had no known power base in Pyongyang, was unlikely to be able to provide details of the secretive country's inner workings", the Journal said.

A deal to denuclearize North Korea has proven elusive to Trump, despite two high-profile summits with Kim.
