Kim insisted that North Korea, also called the DPRK (Democratic People's Republic of Korea), is ready for war with the US.

Dmitry Kiselyov, anchor of Russia's main weekly TV news show "Vesti Nedeli", on the Rossiya 1 channel, is widely seen as the top pro-Kremlin presenter.

"War can break out as a result of confrontation between two personalities: Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un", Kiselyov said.

"I don't want to telegraph what I'm doing or what I'm thinking".

"Both are risky, but who is more unsafe?" "Trump is more impulsive and unpredictable than Kim Jong Un", he told viewers of his prime-time on Sunday (Monday NZ Time) Vesti Nedelyi programme, which earlier this year carried paeans to Trump for his pledge to warm up relations with Russian Federation.

"He (Kim Jong-Un) is after all on his home territory".

It's a salient issue this week, after Vice President Mike Pence visited South Korea and threatened a military response to the regime of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un unless the country abandons its pursuit of nuclear weapons. "His position is close, but not every time", said Peskov.

He said 'it was an unsuccessful launch, ' indicating twice that he has no special knowledge of a planned attack.

Delivering a personal jibe, Kiselyov sarcastically told viewers that the North Korean leader's young daughter did not, unlike Ivanka Trump, have an office in her father's official residence.

Bumper profits, new phone and its chief on trial — Samsung's insane day
Samsung Electronics said Friday, April 7, 2017 its first-quarter profit jumped 48 percent likely due to smartphone component s. The company's de-facto leader, Lee Jae-yong, made his first appearance in court at his trial on corruption charges Friday.

The US attack in Syria, against Russian ally President Bashar Assad, fuelled deepening disillusionment in the Kremlin with the Trump Administration.

Like much of Russia's state-controlled media, Kiselyov initially praised Trump in the weeks before and after his election.

The Pentagon downplayed the incident but many foreign policy observers pointed to it as a Russian attempt to remind the president that it won't be bullied by the U.S.

Like many others, it bought into Trump's pre-election "America First" rhetoric. I hope things work out well.

Trump recalled former President Bill Clinton and former President Barack Obama's efforts to deal with the North, pointing out that they've "all been outplayed" by Kim dynasty.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov criticized Pyongyang for its "reckless nuclear actions" on Monday, but made clear Moscow wanted Trump to de-escalate.

President Donald Trump will not allow North Korea to threaten any US allies or its partners in the region, US Department of State Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs Susan Thornton said in a press briefing on Monday.
