South Korea's presidential office said Trump also dismissed a Wall Street Journal that claimed he was contemplating a military strike against North Korea.

Mr Trump himself welcomed the dialogue - and said talks between North Korea and the USA were a possibility, saying 'We'll see what happens'.

North Korea confirmed on Tuesday that it will send a delegation of athletes to the Olympics, which take place in Pyeongchang next month, despite the two countries technically still being at war.

Yonhap reported that Moon's chief press secretary, Yoon Young-chan, said Trump also offered assurance that military force would not happen while the two Koreas continue to talk.

Trump discussed North Korea in a call Thursday with French President Emmanuel Macron of France.

The U.S. and other world powers want North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program. After the successful talks, North Korea plans to send a delegation Pyeongchang. But he warns that North Korea could use the talks to divide South Korea from its allies, Japan and the U.S.
