FILE - In this Sept. 29, 2018 file photo, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho addresses the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly at U.N. headquarters. The United Nations makes a point of welcoming all nations, regardless of political persuasion. But in many ways, there's a love-hate relationship between the North and the U.N. One important thing the North gets from the U.N. is a direct point of contact with the 192 other member nations, including a host of countries that would be loath to send their diplomats to pay homage in Pyongyang, pre-eminent among them, the United States.

FILE - In this Nov. 17, 1973 file photo, President Richard Nixon speaks near Orlando, Fla. to the Associated Press Managing Editors annual meeting. Nixon told the APME "I am not a crook."

Their letters are being revealed for the first time in an exhibit that opens Thursday at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library & Museum. (AP Photo)
