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

The U.S. president added that he was open to hosting Kim in the U.S.

The president - who was returning from the G-20 summit in Argentina - told reporters aboard Air Force One that a second summit may happen in "January or February".

Former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Monday to take concrete steps toward complete denuclearisation and gain the trust of the worldwide community if he wants sanctions lifted.

"We have actually talked about three sites, we haven't determined the sites", he said. And that, he said, can be done through global climate organizations like the Green Climate Fund and the Global Green Growth Institute, and he welcomed the adoption of the "Buenos Aires Update", part of the G20 nations' efforts to achieve sustainable development.

Moon emphasised the impact Kim's presence in South Korea would have on the two nations.

Ban, a former South Korean foreign minister, said "this is the time" to achieve North Korea's denuclearisation after almost a quarter century of unsuccessful efforts, and that the North and the world should not lose this opportunity.

Some migrants may hope to defeat the odds and penetrate one of the most fortified sections of the southern United States border. USA officials have restricted applications through the Chaparral gate in Tijuana to between 40 and 100 per day.

Mr Trump and Mr Kim held a historic summit in Singapore earlier this year, signing a vaguely worded deal on denuclearisation.

Ban said he hopes their second summit will occur at a time when the global community feels confident about North Korea's commitment to denuclearisation.

North Korea has also not made any concrete moves towards irreversibly dismantling any of its weapon programs, with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo previously announcing the DPRK was still producing fissile material. But differences have emerged between Washington and Seoul on how to proceed with Kim, as the dovish Moon has long favoured engagement with the North. Despite the warming ties, it remains unclear whether Kim will make his first-ever visit to the South this year, as Seoul is hoping.

"We remain unchanged in our stance that (Kim's visit) will be possible and necessary before the end of this year", Baik Tae-hyun, a foreign ministry spokesman, said in a press briefing.

Moon spoke shortly after a meeting with New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern where they discussed how to secure a denuclearised Korean peninsula.

Mr Moon, who is hoping to host Mr Kim soon on the first trip to Seoul by a North Korean leader as agreed earlier this year, said Mr Trump had asked him to pass on a message.
