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.
