Second North Korea summit 'quite soon'

Second North Korea summit 'quite soon'

United Nations, United States: US President Donald Trump said Monday he expected to meet again soon with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, saying he saw "tremendous progress" in easing tensions.

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, told reporters in a preview of Trump's visit, that the president's focus "will be very much on the United States", its role and the relations it wants to build.

"[Kim] said he hoped Mike Pompeo would visit North Korea soon, and also a second summit with Trump would take place in the near future, in order to move the denuclearisation process along quickly", Mr Moon said. However, talks between Pyongyang and Washington have stalled since then.

Moon recently met with Kim and brought a message from the North Korean leader for Trump.

Trump, during a meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the United Nations, said: "Chairman Kim has been really very open and terrific, frankly".

Trump said the location for the second summit is still to be determined, but officials have said the US leader is holding out hope it could take place on American soil.

Trump is set to address the U.N. General Assembly Tuesday morning and will chair a meeting of the Security Council Wednesday on counter-proliferation.

On Monday, the USA leader seemed to change tone as he hailed "tremendous progress on North Korea".

Trump at the time cited Iran's role as a malign force in the region, particularly its support of terrorist groups, but also its involvement in Syria.

Bolton said the United States was seeking to ramp up pressure on Iran but not to overthrow the regime - an idea he supported before taking his job and reiterated recently by former NY mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is Trump's personal lawyer.
