Washington, May 2 (IBNS): In an unlikely praise for Kim Jong-un, the US President Donald Trump has said he's contemplating a meeting with the North Korean leader, but only if it's 'appropriate' for him to do so, reports said.

Speaking to Bloomberg, Trump said that it will be an honour for him to meet Kim.

"If it would be appropriate for me to meet with him, I would - absolutely. I would be honoured to do it," he said.

In another interview with CBS, the American President also appreciated the political acumen of the North Korean leader and hailed him as a 'smart cookie'.

"People are saying: 'Is he sane?' I have no idea... but he was a young man of 26 or 27... when his father died. He's dealing with obviously very tough people, in particular the generals and others," he said.

"And at a very young age, he was able to assume power. A lot of people, I'm sure, tried to take that power away, whether it was his uncle or anybody else. And he was able to do it. So obviously, he's a pretty smart cookie," Trump added.

However, the White House issued a statement later saying that the reclusive nation will have to meet many conditions in order to enter a dialogue with the US.

Earlier, Trump was quoted by news agency Reuters as saying that he fears a 'major, major conflict' with North Korea.

Tensions have also escalated between the two nations as Jong-un was quoted in the media as saying that he plans to blow up America with five-million nuclear bombs.
