Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump said in an interview Tuesday that he’s willing to speak to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to discuss that country’s nuclear program.

“I would speak to him, I would have no problem speaking to him,” Trump told Reuters.

In the wide-ranging interview, Trump also said that he was “not a big fan” of the Paris climate agreement and would want to renegotiate it, arguing that its terms favored China too much. In April, 175 countries signed the landmark pledge to curb carbon emissions.
