Trump Promises Second Summit with Kim Soon

Trump Promises Second Summit with Kim Soon

-South Korean trade agreement, marking one of Trump's first successes in his effort to renegotiate economic deals on more favorable terms for the U.S. Trump labeled it a "very big deal" and says the new agreement makes significant improvements to reduce the trade deficit between the countries and create new opportunities to export American products to South Korea.

Pompeo said while he's optimistic North Korea will make good on its pledge to denuclearize, it would be "foolish" to set a certain date for how long the US will leave the door open for talks with North Korea.

Trump told reporters here at the U.N. General Assembly that the talks are "moving very well" and that the two sides are making "tremendous progress", even though he had abruptly canceled a visit from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Pyongyang earlier this month.

North Korea has indicated in discussions with South Korea that it is willing to make additional concessions beyond closing some launching and testing facilities only if the USA will declare an official end to the Korean War by the end of the year.

Trump commented Monday in NY during an appearance with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

Bolton, like Pompeo, is part of a far more hawkish national security team than the one that surrounded Trump a year ago.

The first historic meeting between the two leaders took place in Singapore in June. "Makes me feel very good, I love our farmers", Trump said, adding that the deal would double the cars per manufacturer that can enter the South Korean market while meeting USA safety standards.

"As you know Kim Jong Un wrote a letter - a handsome letter - asking for a second meeting and we will be doing that", added Trump, who met with Kim in Singapore in June.

Jimmy Butler to skip Timberwolves' media day
However, with no assurances Butler would return next summer, the Cavs would likely also ask for a first-round draft pick as well. Butler put in a trade request from the Minnesota Timberwolves after holding showdown talks with Tom Thibodeau earlier this week.

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.

Even so, some USA 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.

Trump and Moon were expected to sign a new version of the U.S. Both leaders are attending an annual United Nations gathering.

"We've imposed very stringent sanctions on Iran, more are coming, and what we expect from Iran is massive changes in their behavior", he said.

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

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. While Trump is not seeking a meeting with Rouhani, he is open to talking with the Iranian leader if Rouhani requests one, administration officials said.

The nuclear threat also was on the agenda at Trump's first meeting in NY, a dinner with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Sunday night.
