Donald Trump doesn’t intend to visit North Korea any time soon, he said, despite the fact that he had already visited the country.

A South Korean reporter cited diplomatic sources saying Kim Jong-un had invited the US president to visit Pyongyang in August after denuclearisation talks petered off.

However, after a reporter asked Trump if news of the invite is true, he said: “I don’t want to comment on that.”

He added: “The relationship is very good, but I don’t want to comment on it,'" Reutersreported.

Trump was then asked whether or not he’d be willing to go to North Korea and he explained:

Probably not. I don’t think it’s ready. I don’t think we’re ready for that. I would do it sometime at – sometime at a later future.

And depending on what happens, I’m sure he’ll love coming to the United States also. But, no, I don’t think it’s ready for that. I think we have a ways to go yet.

Trump has already visited North Korea.

The stamps have reportedly been obtained by the Japanese media outlet Kyodo News from a stamp shop in Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea.

A total of three stamps have been released so far, one featuring the handshake, the second the signing of the document and thirdly the document itself.

The US president even hung a photo of himself in the White House meeting the North Korean leader in the demilitarised zone.

So there’s that.
