Trump lauds Kim in United Nations return

The two presidents were meeting on the margins of the United Nations general assembly, where they signed a new bilateral trade agreement, and Moon said he was bringing a new message from Kim to Trump about a second summit.

Trump said Monday, "The scourge of drug addiction continues to claim too many lives in the United States and nations around the world". [It] looks like we'll have a second summit quite soon.

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

Trump said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has been tasked with bringing about the second summit, despite an assessment by USA officials that the North has not followed through on its commitments to take steps toward denuclearization. Moon said Kim pledged to work toward denuclearization by 2021, which would mark the end of Trump's first term.

Mr. Trump said it would likely not be in the same place as the Singapore summit.

Mr Kim had hit back, describing the American leader as "deranged" and saying he would "pay dearly" for his threats, and so began a trade of insults between the two.

Presidents Moon and Trump also put pen to paper on their revised free trade deal on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

"I think our farmers are going to be extremely happy, it was very limited as to what they could do and what they could send and now it's a open market and they're going to be sending a lot more farm products". Abe stands first among world leaders in cultivating a close relationship with the president through displays of flattery that he has used to advance his efforts to influence the unpredictable American leader.

With the signing, Seoul will double the number of American cars that meet US safety rules, not Korean ones, to 50-thousand, . while Washington will maintain 25-percent tariffs on imports of South Korean-made light trucks until 2041.


While Trump will dial down the rhetoric against Kim, there seems to be little prospect of him doing likewise with Rouhani.

Redoubling his commitment to "America First" on the most global of stages, Trump will stress his dedication to the primacy of US interests while competing with Western allies for an advantage on trade and shining a spotlight on the threat that he says Iran poses to the Middle East and beyond.

USA allies in the Middle East, notably Saudi Arabia, have, however, been delighted by Trump's stance. -South Korea free-trade agreement Monday in NY.

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

Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Monday accused U.S. allies Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates of supporting Arab separatists allegedly behind an attack on a military parade last week that killed 24 people.

The US president has questioned the cost of the military alliance with South Korea and repeatedly knocked the country on trade even while seeking to cooperate to eliminate North Korea's nuclear threat.

North Korean leaders have threatened to turn the South Korean capital into a "sea of fire" in the past.

He said it would be hard for the U.S.to object to the measures, calling it "clever maneuvering on Moon's part".
