WASHINGTON/NEW YORK —AlGhad— US President Donald Trump praised North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Wednesday for appearing to back down on his threat to launch missiles toward the US territory of Guam.

Trump described Kim’s decision as “wise and reasonable”, and underscored that the alternative would have been catastrophic, the CNN and AFP reported.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the US administration is still interested in dialogue with North Korean President Kim Jong-un but "that's up to him."

He added: "I have no response to his decisions at all at this time." Tillerson has previously said the US is open to talks with North Korea if its military halts its missile tests, Petra, the Jordanian news agency said.
