US President : Donald Trump offers to meet Kim Jong-un as Pentagon warns only invasion can disarm North Korea.

US President : Donald Trump offers to meet Kim Jong-un as Pentagon warns only invasion can disarm North Korea.
Donald Trump last night offered an unexpected diplomatic olive branch to North Korea, indicating he would "certainly be open" to sitting down for personal talks with Kim Jong-un.
In an interview broadcast in the US shortly after he arrived in Tokyo at the start of a marathon 12-day Asia tour, Mr Trump said it would be "not a bad thing" to meet the dictator.
He said: "I would sit down with anybody. I don't think it's strength or weakness, I think sitting down with people is not a bad thing.
  So I would certainly be open to doing that but we'll see where it goes, I think we're far too early."
His comments followed months of escalating rhetoric between the two leaders in which Mr Trump threatened to rain "fire and fury" on North Korea, and called diplomacy a "waste of time"
  Donald Trump's remarks also came as Pentagon officials released a stark new assessment that the only way to neutralise North Korea's nuclear weapon sites "with complete certainty" would be through a ground invasion.
In a letter to members of Congress, Rear Admiral Michael J. Dumont, vice director of the Pentagon’s Joint Staff, also warned that, in a conflict, North Korea may use biological weapons including "nerve, blister, blood and choking agents".
Senator Dianne Feinstein, who sits on the Senate intelligence committee, said: "It is the most bleak assessment."
Mr Trump also confirmed he would almost certainly meet with Vladimir Putin , the Russian president, on the sidelines of a summit in Vietnam later in his trip, and would seek his support for reining in Mr Kim's regime.
The US president said: "I think it's expected we'll meet with Putin, yeah, we want Putin's help on North Korea. And we'll be meeting with a lot of different leaders."
He also indicated a decision would be made soon whether to add North Korea to a list of state sponsors of terrorism.
Amid speculation the rogue state could seek to undermine Mr Trump's trip by launching a missile test, the US president delivered a more familiar warning to Mr Kim when he spoke in Tokyo.
He stated: "No-one, no dictator, no regime and no nation should underestimate American resolve. Every once in a while in the past, they underestimated us. It was not pleasant for them, was it?
"We will never yield, never waver and never falter in defence of our people, our freedom and our great American flag."
Mr Trump also launched a new tactic, seeking to drive a wedge between the North Korean public and their leadership, calling them "great, industrious people, much warmer than the world really knows or understands".
North Korean state media called Mr Trump "spiritually unstable" and warned him against making "reckless remarks".
In Tokyo, Mr Trump played nine holes of golf with Shinzo Abe, the Japanese prime minister, and Hideki Matsuyama, the world's number three golfer.

On Twitter he called Mr Abe a "marvelous friend" and said they had a "spirited conversation" on the course. A White House official said they discussed North Korea. They did not keep score during the game.
Mr Abe served Mr Trump American hamburgers for lunch and the two men signed hats that said "Donald and Shinzo Make Alliance Even Greater".
Late on Sunday Mr Trump faced a more delicate diplomatic task as he and Melania Trump, the First Lady, were due to meet Japan's Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko.
His predecessor Barack Obama came under fire for breaking the presidential protocol of not deferring to royalty when he bent to a near-90 degree angle when he met the emperor in Tokyo in 2009. It was thought unlikely that Mr Trump would bow.
Mr Trump was also due to meet with relatives of Japanese people abducted by North Korea, including Megumi Yokota, who was kidnapped 40 years ago at the age of 13 while walking home from school.
Her mother Sakie Yokota, 81, said: "I’ll make an appeal for my daughter’s early return. I hope he, as a father, will cooperate.” Nick Allen
