Trump says he expects second N.Korea summit ‘quite soon’

The nuclear threat from North Korea dominated Mr Trump's first meeting in NY - a dinner with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Sunday night.

On his return to Seoul, he said Kim Jong-un wanted "complete denuclearisation quickly", and to focus on his country's economic development. "He wants to talk about protecting US sovereignty", while building relationships with nations that "share those values".

Moon claimed that Kim's stated wish to "denuclearise the Korean peninsula" meant that Pyongyang's decision "to relinquish its nuclear programme has been officialized to a degree that not even those within North Korea can reverse".

"A declaration of an end to the war is a political declaration that says we will end our hostile relations", Moon said earlier. We tried to do step for step.

The Trump administration has been working to renegotiate many of America's trade deals to make them more fair.

Moon's trip to NY is also aimed at explaining the outcome of his third bilateral summit with Kim to the world.

The president further stated the US and South Korea will continue their great economic partnership together.

And President Trump, . also pledging to meet with the North Korean leader very soon.

Presidents Moon and Trump also put pen to paper on their revised free trade deal on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

"The United Nations has tremendous potential and that potential is being met, slowly but surely", Trump told the drug meeting attended by UN chief Antonio Guterres.

"It was a different world", Trump said Monday of his one-time moniker for the North Korean leader. "This is one year later, a very different time". Abe stands first among world leaders in cultivating a close relationship with the president through displays of flattery that he has used to advance his efforts to influence the unpredictable American leader.

President Trump is at the United Nations for his second general assembly meeting with world leaders since taking office and has participated in a counter-narcotics event.

Trump was elected promising to address US opioid addiction. The next round of tough sanctions on Iran is set to go into effect in November. El-Sissi said it's an obligation Trump has made clear.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is in NY to attend United Nations meetings.

The president, whose bellicose denunciations of Pyongyang have largely given way to hopeful notes, plans to sit down with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who comes bearing a personal message to Trump from North Korea's Kim after their inter-Korean talks last week.

Rouhani, appearing on NBC on Monday, cited the threat of more US sanctions in stating, "There is no such program for a meeting". Rosenstein has denied the reports.
