Asked him how Rocket Man is doing.

And then a discussion session on North Korea will be held jointly by Gen. Vincent K. Brooks, commander of the U.S. Forces Korea; Choi Young-jin, South Korea's former ambassador to the U.S.; and Michael O'Hanlon, a senior research fellow at the Brookings Institution.

Mr Kim has vowed to complete his nation's nuclear programme.

U.N. Ambassador to the United States Nikki Haley discusses the North Korean issue with reporters at the White House on Friday.
