US media outlets are also expressing interest in the letter North Korean leader Kim Jong-un sent to his South Korean counterpart. Now that Kim demonstrated his will to resolve the nuclear issue, attention is drawn to whether a breakthrough can be achieved in the stalled nuclear negotiations between North Korea and the US.

Foreign news media have covered in detail North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's letter sent to South Korean President Moon Jae-in. CNN said that Kim has sent a "rare personal" letter to his South Korean counterpart, expressing willingness to meet again in 2019. The Wall Street Journal noted the significance of the timing, noting the letter comes amid stalled nuclear negotiations between Pyongyang and Washington and as US sanctions on the North continue. Major US media outlets analyzed that the letter could represent North Korea's positive response to recent conciliatory gestures made by the U.S. such as Vice President Mike Pence canceling a speech on North Korean human rights and the US' decision to consider allowing American travels to North Korea for humanitarian aid purposes. Considering that Kim's letter had often played an important role during times of deadlock in Pyongyang-Washington relations, US media speculate the letter may also contain Kim's commitment toward dialogue with the U.S. which can help restart denuclearization negotiations. The Associated Press and Bloomberg also note the timing, as the letter comes just two days before the North Korean leader is set to deliver his New Year's address. US media say the letter likely foreshadows the direction of that speech. The Trump administration and Washington's diplomatic circle are keenly focused on what kind of message Kim Jong-un will convey on January first.
