Moon: Trump to grant Kim's wishes

Moon: Trump to grant Kim's wishes

"I believe that our efforts will definitely give a positive impetus to the second US-North Korea summit meeting", he said.

Since the initial agreement for denuclearization, the United States has pressed the North Koreans to provide information on the entirety of its nuclear operations.

US President Donald Trump said Saturday he hoped to organise a second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in early 2019, perhaps as soon as January or February. Moon and his wife, Kim Jung-sook, arrived in the South Pacific nation late Sunday after attending the Group of 20 Nations summit in Argentina.

Moon said a visit by Kim to the South would also improve US-North Korea relations as Kim and President Donald Trump look to follow up their June summit in Singapore.

Moon and Kim have met three times in 2018 amid warming ties between the two Koreas, with South Korea hoping to host a first-ever visit by Kim to Seoul before year's end.

"I think it will be absolutely imperative in this next summit that we come away with a plan for identifying all of the weapons in question, identifying all the development sites, allowing for inspections of the sites and the plan for dismantling nuclear weapons", Pence said in an interview with NBC.

Trump says US-China ties make 'BIG leap forward'
Both Xi and Trump made concessions in Buenos Aires to temporarily deescalate this trade dispute. Xi's government has offered sweeteners to defrost what has become an economic Cold War.

On Nov. 15, Vice President Mike Pence told NBC News that the US will not require North Korea to provide a complete list of nuclear weapons and missile sites before the two leaders meet for a second time.

The two leaders signed a vaguely worded document on denuclearisation of the peninsula, but progress since has stalled as Washington and Pyongyang spar over the meaning of the document.

North Korea had entered into agreements with regional powers in 1994 and in 2005 to dismantle its nuclear program in return for economic benefits and diplomatic rewards, but those deals broke down after Pyongyang clandestinely continued to pursue building weapons of mass destruction.

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.

North and South Korea have begun to remove landmines and destroy some military bunkers along their common border as part of the detente.

"They have not lived up to the commitments so far", Bolton said at a Wall Street Journal's CEO Council conference in Washington, according to CNN.
