Trump Meets with South Korean President, Says Kim Jong-Un Meeting "Quite Soon"

South Korean President Moon Jae-in arrived in New York on Sunday to attend the U.N. General Assembly and hold a bilateral summit meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump.

Moon met with Kim Jong-un in Pyongyang last week and said the North Korean dictator remains committed to denuclearization and better relations with the outside world.

Moon expressed his support for signing a formal peace treaty to end the Korean War, which was suspended with an armistice in 1953.

Appearing on NBC News’ Meet the Press on Sunday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said President Trump is “prepared to meet with Chairman Kim at the right time,” and hoped the right time would arrive “in the not-too-distant future,” but indicated the administration remains skeptical of North Korea’s intentions.

Speaking from the U.N. on Monday, Pompeo supported President Trump’s desire to hold another meeting with Kim Jong-un even though North Korea has taken few solid steps toward denuclearization.
