In a personal message sent to Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-un’s regime reportedly claimed it was preparing an imminent strike.
The Russian leader then passed the intelligence on to Washington, which prompted Donald Trump to tone down his rhetoric during his East Asian trip this week, according to the Daily Star.
The revelation comes as President Trump met with his Russian counterpart at a major trade summit in Vietnam this week.
Valentina Matvienko, Russia’s Chairwoman of the Federation Council, reportedly revealed last month she had received a letter sent from Pyongyang addressed to Mr Putin.
According to Kremlin propaganda tool Sputnik News, the Americans changed their stance towards North Korea after being told about the letter by Russia.
Sputnik said the document was given to upper house speaker Valentina Matviyenko by the North Korea delegation, who then passed it on to President Putin.
This news comes after three US aircraft carriers teamed up with Japanese ships for joint naval exercises designed to send a clear warning to North Korea.
The four-day drills that began in waters off South Korea’s eastern coast came as President Donald Trump traded insults with North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un.
The battle groups of the USS Ronald Reagan, the Theodore Roosevelt and the Nimitz will successively enter the exercise area during the drills that run until tomorrow, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said.
I think that the US shield systems could deal with any missiles sent their way. Then I rather think that there would be a hole in the China Sea where North Korea used to be.
What do you think?
