    Republican Donald Trump open to talks with North Korea

    May 18, Washington: US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he is willing to meet the North Korean leader to discuss Pyongyang's 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, reports said.

    Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton decried Trump's "bizarre fascination with foreign strongmen".

    The statement, delivered by one of her aides, added that Trump's foreign policy "made no sense".

    Diplomats expect his visit to the UK could happen after he formally becomes the Republican party candidate at a convention in July.

    Earlier this week Trump said "it looks like we're not going to have a very good relationship" with the UK.

    British Prime Minister David Cameron and new London Mayor Sadiq Khan have harshly criticised Mr Trump's proposed ban on Muslims coming to the US, BBC reported.
