US election: Donald Trump open to talks with North Korea

US, May 18: Presumptive US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he is willing to meet North Korea’s leader to discuss its nuclear programme.

“I would speak to him, I would have no problem speaking to him,” the businessman said of Kim Jong-un.

Such a meeting would mark a significant change of US policy towards the politically isolated regime.

Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton decried Mr Trump’s “bizarre fascination with foreign strongmen”.

The statement, delivered by one of her aides, added that Mr Trump’s foreign policy “made no sense”.

In a separate interview with Fox News, Mr Trump said he “absolutely had regrets” about his nine-month campaign, but that if had not conducted himself in the way he had, he would not have been successful. BBC
