Meeting with Kim Jong Un ‘could happen soon’– Trump
UNITED NATIONS (AP):
United States President Donald Trump says another meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un “could happen soon”.
Trump didn’t elaborate on Monday at the start of UN meetings in New York about a possible fourth meeting with Kim over the North’s expanding nuclear programme.
North Korean nuclear talks have been stalled despite past meetings between Trump and Kim, and the North has staged a series of short-range missile and artillery tests recently. Trump meets with South Korean President Moon Jae-in later on Monday.
The president will also speak Tuesday before the UN General Assembly, two years after he used the moment to deride Kim Jong-un as “Little Rocket Man” and threaten to destroy North Korea.
