Trump Agrees To New Talks With North Korea, Says Taliban Talks Are Dead

What an interesting day for North Korea…the Hermit Kingdom says it is willing to resume nuclear talks with the United States “if a fresh approach is taken.” State media has even confirmed that diminutive dictator Kim Jong Un has agreed to a meeting with President Trump on June 30th. But then, that news came on the heels of another missile launch

The North Korean Vice Foreign Minister said Un was willing to have "comprehensive discussions" with Trump at a time and place agreed between both sides. He added that if the U.S. presents similar scenarios as it has done in the past, then a deal between the countries may come together. The problem? The Trump Administration says it has no events with North Korea to announce at this time.

Meanwhile, President Trump says talks with the Taliban are totally dead. Talking with reporters at the White House, Trump confirmed that he called off the talks after a suicide bomb attack killed a U.S. soldier in Kabul last week. Trump said he wants to get U.S. forces out of the war-torn country, but only at the right time. At last check, more than 14-thousand American forces remain in Afghanistan.

As for the launch, the Pentagon is keeping an eye on the situation. It’s been confirmed that the North launched two "unidentified projectiles" off its east coast. The rockets traveled about 200 miles. U.S. and South Korean officials are working to figure out what type of missiles were fired.
