North Korea, United States: Leaders to Meet Early Next Year, Trump Says

North Korea, United States: Leaders to Meet Early Next Year, Trump Says”

Donald Trump wants North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to know that he likes him and will fulfil his wishes, South Korea's president Moon Jae-in said on Sunday, a day after meeting the U.S. president at an economic summit in Argentina.

Moon emphasised the impact Kim's presence in South Korea would have on the two nations. Moon said it's still unclear whether Kim will visit Seoul by the end of this year, and that it's up to the North Korean leader.

Pence said last month it was essential that global sanctions pressure be maintained on North Korea until its complete denuclearization was achieved.

President Moon Jae-in's office quoted Moon as saying that Trump asked him to convey those messages to the North Korean leader if he visits Seoul this year as he promised.

The presumed birthday of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un remains unmarked in the North's calendars for 2019.

'The message is that president Trump has very favourable views toward Chairman Kim and he likes him, ' Moon told reporters aboard a flight from Argentina to New Zealand, where he started a three-day state visit on Sunday.

President Moon Jae-in met with New Zealand's main opposition leader on Monday during his state visit to the country and discussed ways to advance bilateral cooperation.

"There is absolutely no discord between South Korea and the U.S.in terms of the process of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula and advancing inter-Korean relations."

"We're getting along very well", Trump said aboard Air Force One on Thursday as he prepared to travel to the G20 summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Trump and Kim met for the first time in June in Singapore, where they issued a vague statement on a nuclear-free peninsula without describing how and when it would occur.

They agreed on the need for "maintaining vigorous enforcement of existing sanctions to ensure the DPRK understands that denuclearization is the only path", Sanders said, using the North's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

In his talks with Trump in Argentina, Moon earned some support for the Seoul summit from the U.S. leader - perhaps in a bid to entice Kim to make good on his pledge.

US Vice President Mike Pence said last month Trump would push for a concrete plan outlining Pyongyang's moves to end its nuclear and missile programmes. But both Moon and Trump say fears of war on the Korean Peninsula have eased sharply.
