S. Korea’s Moon still hopes to host Kim this year

South Korean President Moon Jae-in speaks during a media conference in Auckland New Zealand

"As such, he asked me to tell Chairman Kim that he wants to implement the rest of their agreement together and he will fulfil Chairman Kim's wishes".

Moon said a second summit between Kim and Trump will prove to be the "most critical moment" for North Korea's denuclearisation.

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 global community if he wants sanctions lifted.

'The message is that president Trump has very favourable views toward Chairman Kim and he likes him, ' Moon told reporters aboard a flight from Argentina to New Zealand, where he started a three-day state visit on Sunday.

Canada, Australia and New Zealand were among the nations to ban the use of Huawei's equipment due to security concerns. Officials for the Canadian and US Justice Departments did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


Moon said there still is a possibility Kim's visit could take place before the end of the year.

Moon has also facilitated a series of high-level talks between the USA and North Korea, including a summit between Trump and Kim in June.

The South Korean daily Hankyoreh reported that Moon was angry about press reports claiming discord between the USA and South Korea.

Kim sharply raised tensions with nuclear and missile tests last year, but suddenly reached out to South Korea and the United States this year with a vague nuclear disarmament pledge. The two countries signed a free-trade deal in 2015.

Two US Marine planes crash while refueling off Japan
U.S. media say the two planes crashed during midair refuelling but this has not been officially confirmed. They also said they were unsure how the mishap may have occurred but none suspected foul play.


"This will be the first time that the North Korean leader will visit Seoul since Korea was divided into two countries", he said.

North and South Korea have begun to remove landmines and destroy military bunkers along parts of their common border amid efforts to improve long-strained ties.

Trump and Moon announced after their landmark summit in Singapore in June that they had agreed to work towards the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, although the two sides have since made little progress agreeing on a timeline or other concrete steps.

Moon has met Kim three times this year.

"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.

Rudy Giuliani Accidentally Roasted President Trump With The Perfect Typo
Giuliani suggested without evidence that Twitter may have been involved in linking his tweet to the apparent anti-Trump website. He tells CNET the whole process took him 15 minutes, and "I did it, mostly, because I could".


Meanwhile, Bloomberg has reported Mr Trump as saying he expects to hold a second summit with Mr Kim as soon as next month.
