President Trump on Friday, aug. 2, made a series of tweets downplaying North Korea’s recent missile tests.

“Kim Jong Un and North Korea tested 3 short range missiles over the last number of days. These missiles tests are not a violation of our signed Singapore agreement, nor was there discussion of short range missiles when we shook hands,” the president said. 

“Chairman Kim does not want to disappoint me with a violation of trust, there is far too much for North Korea to gain—the potential as a Country, under Kim Jong Un’s leadership, is unlimited. Also, there is far too much to lose,” President Trump added.

President Trump also praised North Korean leader Kim as a great leader and has “a great and beautiful vision for his country.”

“Chairman Kim has a great and beautiful vision for his country, and only the United States, with me as President, can make that vision come true. He will do the right thing because he is far too smart not to, and he does not want to disappoint his friend, President Trump!” President Trump said in a tweet.

According to AP, the North’s new missile launches came as the United Kingdom, France, and Germany—following a closed U.N. Security Council briefing—condemned the North’s recent ballistic activity as violations of U.N. sanctions and urged Pyongyang to engage in “meaningful negotiations” with the United States on eliminating its nuclear weapons.

North Korea said on Saturday its leader supervised another test-firing of a new multiple rocket launcher system that could potentially enhance the country’s ability to strike targets in South Korea and U.S. military bases there, according to AP.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said earlier on Friday that he wished North Korea had sent its foreign minister to the meeting at the annual gathering of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations in Thailand. But he also expressed optimism that talks would resume soon.

“I always look forward to a chance to talk with him,” Pompeo told an audience at the Siam Society. “I wish they’d have come here. I think it would have given us an opportunity to have another set of conversations, and I hope it won’t be too long before I have a chance to do that.”
