Kim Jong Un’s nuclear faceoff with the United States is reaching a dangerous point.

In a New Year’s message he claimed all of America was within range of his nuclear weapons.

So when he agreed to one high level meeting, many experts believe it could determine World War 3.

Trump responded to Kim Jong Un’s New Year’s message with a no-nonsense tweet that did not mince words.

And that’s when North Korea reopened a hotline with South Korea and agreed to high level peace talks.

CNN reports:

“North Korea has accepted South Korea’s proposal for official talks, in what will be the first high-level contact to take place between the two countries in more than two years.

South Korean Unification Ministry spokesman Baik Tae-hyun told reporters Friday North Korea informed its southern neighbor by fax at 10:16 a.m. local time (8:16 p.m Thursday ET) that they have accepted the South’s offer to initiate talks.

The person-to-person talks will be held January 9 — one day after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s birthday — at the Peace House, located on the South Korean side of the so-called truce village of Panmunjom, located in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) between the two nations, Baik said.

The two sides agreed to work on the details of the talks “through the exchange of documents,” Baik said, adding that the agenda items of the talks will be “issues related to improving inter-Korean relationships including the Pyeongchang (Winter) Olympic Games.”

Asked whether hotlines would be open on the weekend, he said he expected they would, as time to prepare for the first face-to-face meeting in over two years was running short.”

Members of the media mocked Trump for his tweet.

But it was because Trump showed strength and confidence that North Korea agreed to come to the negotiating table.
