Mr Trump took credit for brokering the talks on Twitter, however.

North Korea regularly threatens to destroy the United States and its two key Asia allies, Japan and South Korea.

MSNBC political analyst and author Anand Giridharadas weighed in on President Trump's tweet Tuesday evening mocking North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, saying the president's "profound sexual insecurity" has the potential of "literally" annihilating our existence.

However, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley maintained a tough line, playing down Seoul's offer to hold talks.

"The fact that South Korea wants to talk to North Korea, hopefully with China chairing the meeting, is a good sign", Armstrong added.

In his New Year's address, Mr Kim threatened he has a "nuclear button" on his office desk and warned that "the whole territory of the USA is within the range of our nuclear strike". He referred to the recent, dramatic escape of at least two North Korean soldiers across the heavily militarized border into South Korea. Indeed, on January 2, Trump responded to Kim's speech by tweeting: "Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!"

Moon and Trump had a telephone conversation for about 30 minutes earlier in the day, discussing issues of mutual concern relating to the possible inter-Korean talks created by taking the opportunity for the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games, according to the Blue House, the presidential palace.

South Korea's defense ministry has said it had yet to see any evidence of an imminent missile launch.

In the weeks since his injury, he has been watching the Steelers' games from a suite at Heinz Field. "He's a long ways from where he was Monday night when he was laying on the field".

If there are talks, they would be the first formal dialogue between the Koreas since December 2015. While Kim's strategy poses risks created to pressure Moon and open up a breach in the U.S. -ROK alliance, who can blame Moon for trying to find ways to avert Kim from his longer-term trajectory of conflict with the United States?

Ms Haley said at a news conference at the United Nations, however, that the U.S. "won't take any [inter-Korean] talks seriously" unless Pyongyang bans all its nuclear weapons and testing. Last year, the U.N. Security Council adopted three sets of sanctions to punish the regime for its banned tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles and its sixth nuclear detonation in September.

South Korea's liberal President Moon Jae-in has supported Trump's pressure campaign against North Korea, but he's less confrontational than the US president and favors dialogue to ease the North's nuclear threats. In order to host the great events of the nation with splendor and demonstrate the dignity and stamina of the nation, we should melt the frozen north-south relations, thus adorning this meaningful year as a year to be specially recorded in the history of the nation. South Korea shares that same goal, she said.
