Trump expects announcement of new summit with North Korea's Kim 'pretty soon'

Donald Trump

While heading for a meeting with Moon and the leaders from 29 other countries at the United Nations headqurters Monday, the U.S. president said his second summit with the North Korean leader may take place "quite soon", the Associated Press reported.

Trade analysts say changes to the South Korea agreement were largely cosmetic, as the president limited the scope of renegotiations by declining to invoke USA trade law that would have required congressional approval of the final deal.

He said: "It's always been surprising to me that more things aren't resolved, because you have all of these countries getting together in one location but it doesn't seem to get there".

USA ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said last week the two had agreed to meet but said the meeting could take place later.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (pahm-PAY'-oh) said Monday on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, "We've been at this the other way an awfully long time and failed".

The president said he thinks American farmers "are going to be extremely happy", and be sending a lot more farm products to South Korea. "It is great for South Korea, it is great for the United States, it is great for both".

Pompeo says, "We're bringing the two senior leaders, the individuals who can actually make the decisions that will move this process forward", in hopes they can make a breakthrough.

Even so, some US officials worry that South Korea's eagerness to restore relations with the North - known as its "sunshine policy" - could reduce sanctions pressure on Kim's government, hampering efforts to negotiate a nuclear accord. Kim requested a second meeting with Trump in a letter this month, and Trump says, "we will be doing that".

General Assembly in NY this week, adding that declaring a formal end to the Korean War may be a way to provide some security assurance to the North.

He said it would be hard for the U.S.to object to the measures, calling it "clever maneuvering on Moon's part". -South Korean trade agreement, one of Trump's first successes in his effort to renegotiate trade deals on more favorable terms for the U.S. Even so, some U.S. officials worry that South Korea's eagerness to restore relations with the North could reduce sanctions pressure on Kim's government, hampering efforts to negotiate a nuclear accord. El-Sissi said it's an obligation Trump has made clear.

But the tone has warmed again since Kim met last week with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who made his first visit to Pyongyang.

President Trump attends a meeting on the global drug problem at the United Nations, with U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, a day ahead of the official opening of the 73rd United Nations General Assembly, on Monday, in New York City.

"As I have said repeatedly, regime change in Iran is not the administration's policy", Bolton told reporters. Moon, through a translator, said there is progress on denuclearization with North Korea.

The U.S. and South Korean presidents signed an update to an existing U.S.

Trump earlier this year bucked allies and removed the US from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, citing Iran's malign influence in the region and support for terrorist groups like Hezbollah.
