Trump speaks on another US-NKorea summit

 

US President Donald Trump has said he expects to have a second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in the “not too distant future”.

“A lot of progress” was being made, he said, speaking alongside South Korean President Moon Jae-in in New York.

“The relationship is very good and in some ways… extraordinary,” he added.

Just a year ago, Mr. Trump and Chairman Kim were publicly speaking of a nuclear confrontation but the US president had historic first talks with his North Korean counterpart in June.

Speaking earlier, at UN headquarters in New York, Mr. Trump said that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo would arrange the next summit “in the immediate future”.

No decision had yet been taken as to the venue, he said.

Recently, South Korea’s President Moon completed a high-profile, three-day visit to Pyongyang – the first by a Southern leader to the North’s capital in a decade.

He said on Monday that he had been “able to confirm Chairman Kim’s firm commitment to complete denuclearisation” and that he had also expressed his wish to meet Mr. Trump again soon.

The Singapore summit was the first ever meeting between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader.
