In 1994, during Bill Clinton's presidency, he persuaded Kim Il-sung to freeze his country's nuclear programme in a deal that may have averted conflict with the US. Days later, Ri claimed the threats amounted to a "declaration of war" against Kim's regime.

Last week Trump stepped up his attacks on the North saying that talking with it does not work and "only one thing will work".
