Trump Favors Kim Jong-un Visit to Seoul

South Korean train crosses DMZ into North Korea

Moon's spokesperson Kim Eui-Kyeom appreciated Trump's comment on second meet with Kim and said, "We hope a concrete agenda and logistics will be determined soon".

Moon said that Trump "likes" and "has a very friendly view" of the North Korean leader when he spoke to reporters while en route to New Zealand. There's also unease between the United States and South Korea over the pace of inter-Korean engagement, which Washington says should move in tandem with US -led efforts to denuclearize the North.

According to a statement issued by the White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders, Trump and Moon met on the sidelines of the G-20 Summit "to discuss the latest developments regarding the Democratic People's Republic of Korea".

Despite the warming ties, it remains unclear whether Kim will make his first-ever visit to the South this year, as Seoul is hoping.

Kim's potential visit to Seoul is part of the summit agreement between Moon and Kim in September in Pyongyang to reciprocate Moon's trip. He said, "We are getting along very well".

The first Trump-Kim summit took place in June in Singapore but Trump has said the next meeting will probably take place at a new location.

The statement said that both Xi and Trump agreed that "great progress has been made with respect to North Korea".

She noticed that Jean's door was slightly ajar and entered his premises by mistake where he appeared in the darkness, police said. Bertrum Jean said, "We want to give thanks first to the DA's office for the work that they put in to ensure this result today".

They also had to get special one-off clearance from the United Nations to get around sanctions, which prohibit taking fuel and certain equipment into North Korea.

After whistling twice, a South Korean train engine pulling six rail cars slowly departed toward North Korea's Panmun Station, near the town of Kaesong, where the rail cars will be reconnected to a North Korean engine.

North Korea has taken few concrete steps to abandon its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes.

North Korea was angered by Washington's refusal to ease sanctions and warned it could resume its nuclear programme. It was essential that global sanctions pressure be maintained on North Korea until its complete denuclearisation was achieved, he said.

But differences have emerged between Washington and Seoul on how to proceed with Mr. Kim, as the dovish Mr. Moon has long favoured engagement with the North.

"South Korea and the USA share a consensus that it is desirable to discuss a bigger (denuclearization) timetable at the second U.S".

If Seoul gets Washington's understanding on Kim's visit, Moon will attempt to persuade Kim to visit Seoul this year, the report said.
