New North Korean book highlights ‘trust’ between Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump

Moon Jae-in totally absent from new publication, while Xi Jinping, Vladimir Putin feature heavily

North Korean state media released a new propaganda book on Wednesday highlighting Kim Jong Un’s summits with foreign leaders since 2018 and offering a positive outlook on U.S.-DPRK relations resulting from three meetings with U.S. President Donald Trump.

The book, titled “Ushering in a New Era of Development in External Relations” and published by the state-run Foreign Languages Publishing House via the Naenara website, also praises Kim’s five summits with Chinese President Xi Jinping as well as summits with leaders from Russia, Cuba, Singapore and Vietnam. The book does not mention Kim’s three summits with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.
