Donald Trump says 2nd North Korea summit 'quite soon'

Donald Trump on India

Another US-North Korea summit will happen "quite soon", Donald Trump has said.

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.

He said that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo - whose last planned visit to Pyongyang was abruptly scuttled by the White House - would arrange the summit "in the immediate future".

Kim has also offered to dismantle the country's key nuclear facilities in Yongbyon in exchange for corresponding measures from the US. The softer tone toward North Korea - once threatened with "fire and fury" - has been replaced by rosy optimism, with Trump reserving tough rhetoric for another potential nuclear aspirant and strategic foe: Iran.

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.

Pompeo would not confirm to reporters at Monday's briefing the timeline for when such a summit would take place, but said, "Lord willing, I'll be traveling before the end or the year", to continue discussions with his counterparts in Pyongyang.

"That was a risky time".

His national security adviser, John Bolton, said that Trump would stress U.S. defense of its sovereignty in his latest United Nations address on Tuesday. "This is one year later, a much different time". "As you know, Kim Jong-un wrote a letter - a lovely letter - asking for a second meeting and we will be doing that".

Reacting to criticism that more promises should have been extracted from Mr Kim at the last summit, Mr Pompeo told NBC: "We have our eyes wide open". Such a move would itself present a complex political and logistical challenge for the North Korean leader.

The first historic meeting between the two leaders took place in Singapore in June.

Mr Trump will also meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who is expected to convey a personal message from Mr Kim delivered at their inter-Korean talks last week.

Twelve months after Trump stood at the rostrum of the U.N. General Assembly and derided North Korea's Kim Jong Un as "Rocket Man", the push to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula is a work in progress, although fears of war have given way to dreams of rapprochement.

On Wednesday, Trump will for the first time chair a Security Council meeting on non-proliferation that will focus heavily on Iran, likely triggering a clash with other big powers. The next round of tough sanctions on Iran is set to go into effect in November. The South Korean leader also said he hopes the revised agreement with the US will help solidify their cooperation in other areas.
