NEW YORK: A North Korean state media website has published an op-ed on presumptive U.S. Republican nominee Donald Trump, and described him as ‘wise’ and presumptive Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton as ‘dull’.

A self-described Chinese North Korean scholar named Han Yong Mook, writing in DPRK Today called Trump ‘wise’ and a far-sighted presidential candidate.

"The president that U.S. citizens must vote for is not that dull Hillary -- who claimed to adapt the Iranian model to resolve nuclear issues on the Korean Peninsula -- but Trump, who spoke of holding direct conversation with North Korea," CNN quoted his writing as saying.

The article translated by NK Today, an independent news site focused on North Korea, highlighted the New York billionaire’s skepticism of American alliances in East Asia.

Trump had earlier mused about withdrawing some or all of the more than 75,000 U.S. troops currently stationed in South Korea and Japan.

"Japan is better if it protects itself against this maniac of North Korea," Trump told CNN in March.

"We are better off, frankly, if South Korea is going to start protecting itself ... they have to protect themselves or they have to pay us," he added.

The DPRK Today article said, "Who knew that the slogan 'Yankee Go Home' would come true like this?.. The day when the 'Yankee Go Home' slogan becomes real would be the day of Korean Unification."
