U.S. President Donald Trump says "there is some very interesting information on North Korea" and speculated there could be "a major rebuild at a certain point".
These were Trump's first comments on North Korea since the breakdown of the working-level talks with the North in Stockholm.
During a Cabinet meeting on Monday local time, President Trump said that something is going to be happening with North Korea.
Washington and Pyeongyang had seemingly been deadlocked in their denuclearization negotiations as working level talks did not resume in the two weeks anticipated by the U.S. after their breakdown earlier this month.
Even though Trump did not elaborate on what is going on, what kind of information he has, and what the major rebuild means, it seems that there is communication between Washington and Pyeongyang behind the scenes.
At the meeting, President Trump put forward his policy toward North Korea as his achievement.
He said that if it wasn't for him, the U.S. could have been in a big war with North Korea, adding that former President Barack Obama had told him his biggest problem was not knowing how to solve the North Korea problem.
According to Trump, Obama had tried to call Kim 11 times during his presidency but those calls were all rejected while Trump's calls were answered.
