Talks between the United States and North Korea may soon be back on the table.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Saturday North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was ready to resume talks on its nuclear and missile program, as soon as U.S.-South Korea military exercises ended.

Trump tweeted that Kim complained of the "ridiculous and expensive" exercises and would like to meet and start negotiations as soon as the joint drills were over.

The president's remarks come after the secretive state fired what appeared to be two short-range missiles on Saturday (August 10).

South Korea called the launch a "show of force" against the annual military exercises and has called for Pyongyang to stop such launches.

But Donald Trump is continuing to play them down, telling reporters on Friday - quote - "I say it again: There have been no nuclear tests.

The missile tests have all been short-range.

No ballistic missile tests.

No long-range missiles."
