Tensions with North Korea are reaching frightening levels.
There are fears across the globe that Kim Jong Un could launch a nuclear war at any moment.
And the North Korea tyrant just made a phone call that will leave you speechless.
North Korea re-established a diplomatic hotline with South Korea for the first time in two years.
Representatives of the two nations spoke for twenty minutes.
This call came on the heels of Kim Jong Un’s New Year’s message where he surprised observers by offering an olive branch to South Korea to discuss sending a delegation to the upcoming Winter Olympics.
The BBC reports:
“North Korea has reopened a hotline to South Korea, almost two years after it was disabled on the orders of leader Kim Jong-un.
South Korea confirmed it had received a call from the North at 15:30 local time (06:30 GMT) on Wednesday.
The North Korean leader had earlier said he was open to dialogue with Seoul and to sending a team to the Winter Olympics in the South next month.
The two nations have not held high-level talks since December 2015.
North Korea cut off the communications channel shortly afterwards, refusing to answer calls, according to officials in the South.
A North Korean official announced the hotline’s reopening in a televised statement.
Instead of a senior newscaster, the chairman of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of the Fatherland, Ri Son-gwon, made the statement, saying he was speaking “upon authorisation of Kim Jong-un”.
The initial call was brief as checks are still being carried out on the line, according to South Korean officials.
North Korea said the aim would be for the two nations to discuss the practical issues around sending a North Korean delegation to the Winter Games in Pyeongchang.”
North Korea could be reaching out to the South to lower the temperature in a nuclear standoff.
Donald Trump has proven he is not the pushover American President North Korea is used to dealing with.
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!
