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

Then-President Syngman Rhee opposed peace talks. I think that President Moon and myself are very happy.

Moon, speaking through a translator, said the two countries had made "modifications" to the deal. The deal with South Korea is more complicated because of North Korea, which is in the midst of negotiations with the US and South Korea over the dismantling of its nuclear program. "Expressing his unchanged high expectations for President Trump, Chairman Kim Jong-un expressed hope to meet with President Trump at an early date to conclude the denuclearization process".

He described the revised pact as a "brand new agreement" and a sign that his trade strategy was working.

Kim and Trump met in Singapore on June 12, marking the first-ever US-North Korea summit in history. The South Korean leader also said he hopes the revised agreement with the USA will help solidify their cooperation in other areas.

Trump was speaking at an appearance in NY on Monday with the South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, who claimed that North Korea's decision to dismantle its nuclear weapons programme was irreversible.

"As I have said repeatedly, regime change in Iran is not the administration's policy", Bolton told reporters.

"I think it makes very appropriate reciprocal confidence-building measures", said Eric Gomez, a security analyst at the Cato Institute, a US libertarian think tank. He says US automobiles, pharmaceuticals and agricultural products will gain better access to Korean markets. "And it would also create problems with the alliance with South Korea". USA officials are insisting that economic sanctions remain in place against the North until it eliminates its nuclear program.

It was focused on conventional forces, an important issue for Moon because North Korea has more than 1 million soldiers and thousands of artillery batteries and rockets poised to target Seoul, some 35 miles to the south.

While meeting with Moon, the North Korean leader offered to dismantle his country's missile engine test facility and missile launch pads in Dongchang-ri, known to be the testbed for long-range ballistic missiles capable of reaching the continental US. Korean officials have been pushing for an assurance that they will receive an exemption. "And I think within a pretty short period of time, that will be announced and its location will be determined".

They also will designate no-fly zones for helicopters, drones and hot-air balloons, which are used to deliver propaganda leaflets, above the Military Demarcation Line that runs through the Demilitarized Zone.

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

Asked if that would be before the end of the year, he replied: "Yes".

Slutsky says he hopes to meet while in NY with U.S. Senator Rand Paul, who visited Moscow last month and has encouraged more cooperation with Russia despite increasing layers of U.S. sanctions over Russian interference overseas.

That included plans to remove all mines and to disarm troops in the Joint Security Area in the truce village of Panmunjom.

"If implemented, these measures will reduce tensions, and will also make incidents at the DMZ significantly less likely - even though it will hardly prevent either side from staging a clash when/if it is seen as politically expedient", North Korea expert Andrei Lankov wrote in a commentary for NK News.

Moon says companies from both countries will be able to do business under more stable conditions.
