U.S. President Donald Trump asked South Korea to deliver a birthday message to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, in the latest exchange of personal greetings between the two leaders whose countries have been adversaries for decades.
South Korea’s National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong told reporters at Incheon International Airport on Friday that Trump made the request to send greetings to Kim, whose birthday was on Wednesday. “He had a well-wishing message that he wanted South Korean President Moon Jae-in to deliver to Chairman Kim Jong Un,” he said.
Chung and his Japanese counterpart Shigeru Kitamura briefly met Trump in Washington on Wednesday, according to the White House. Chung said South Korean officials then delivered Trump’s message to North Korean authorities through “appropriate measures,” without giving further details on the birthday message.
