Content from U.S. President Donald Trump, Pyongyang's state media said Sunday. Korean language watermark on image as provided by source reads: "KCNA" which is the abbreviation for Korean Central News Agency.

Mr Kim praised the letter as "excellent" and said he would "seriously contemplate the interesting content", the KCNA news agency said.

President Trump threatened to throw a Time photographer in jail for taking a picture of a letter from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in the Oval Office despite being warned not to, according to the magazine.

Trump has held out massive economic stimulus as an incentive for North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons.

Pyongyang pulled out all the stops to welcome Xi, the first Chinese president to visit in 14 years - a period in which North Korea has carried out five nuclear tests and launched missiles capable of reaching the entire United States mainland.

The U.S. -North Korea peace process and denuclearization talks hit a stalemate after the collapse of the Hanoi summit.

The North Korean report on Mr Trump's letter came days after Mr Kim's summit with visiting Chinese President Xi Jinping, which experts say underscored China's emergence as a major player in the diplomatic push to resolve the nuclear standoff with the North.

He compiled a 192-220 record as head coach of the New York Knicks (1987-89) and Boston Celtics (1997-2001). With the Celtics, Pitino also was handed personnel control and the title of team president.

Mr Xi is expected to meet with Mr Trump next week in Japan.

Mr Trump, who has a love-hate relationship with the media, which he has referred to as the "enemy of the people" despite loving the attention he gets, then complained about the magazine's coverage of him.

Earlier this month he told reporters that North Korea under Mr Kim's leadership had "tremendous potential".

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

In September 2018, Trump told a cheering crowd at a campaign rally in West Virginia that Kim "wrote me attractive letters and they're great letters".
