MOSCOW (Sputnik) - US President Donald Trump said Tuesday that many good conversations with North Korea were underway and they were going well.

If not for me , we would now be at War with North Korea ! He’s playing himself up to be a hero by saying “without me, we ’ d be at WAR with North Korea ” when anybody with a brain knows there’s no way we ’ d be at war unless it was caused by Trump himself.

"Many good conversations with North Korea-it is going well! In the meantime, no Rocket Launches or Nuclear Testing in 8 months. All of Asia is thrilled. Only the Opposition Party, which includes the Fake News, is complaining. If not for me, we would now be at War with North Korea!" Trump wrote on Twitter.

Trump's tweet follows reports that U.S. officials believe North Korea has increased production of fuel for nuclear weapons despite agreeing to work toward the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

"There's no evidence that they are decreasing stockpiles, or that they have stopped their production," one unnamed U.S. official briefed on the latest intelligence told NBC News last week. "There is absolutely unequivocal evidence that they are trying to deceive the U.S."

Trump became the first U.S. president since the Korean War to accept a meeting with a North Korean when he met with Kim last month.

After the meeting, Trump tweeted that there was no longer a nuclear threat from the country.

"There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea. Meeting with Kim Jong Un was an interesting and very positive experience. North Korea has great potential for the future!" Trump tweeted at the time.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is expected to travel to North Korea later this week.

Pompeo will meet with Kim and other officials, according to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

He will remain in North Korea until Saturday to "continue consultations and implement the forward progress made by President Trump and Chairman Kim in Singapore," the State Department said.
