Japan offers to host second US-North Korea summit

Japan offers to host second US-North Korea summit

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday, October 9, said that planning for his next summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is advanced and that "three or four locations" have been short-listed.

Trump said that in terms of timing, the summit "won't be too far away", later telling reporters it would take place after the November 6 midterm elections.

Her remarks amounted to a rare confirmation of discord between Seoul and Washington, amid U.S. concerns that inter-Korean relations may be warming too fast relative to negotiations to dismantle North Korea's nuclear arms programme.

"We will, in short order, be able to talk about when the president will get to meet with him at what will be the second summit".

Still, Trump was upbeat on progress so far.

North Korea is very interested in reaching some sort of agreement on denuclearization so that it can grow economically with the benefit of the foreign investment closed to it now, Trump said.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Kim in Pyongyang on Sunday, in what he told reporters was a "very productive" meeting. "I'm not seeing a lot of a time schedule, I'm just seeing, you know, sort of a vague commitment at this point".

Trump and Kim held a historic first summit in Singapore on June 12 at which Kim pledged to work toward denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un seems to have a new Rolls-Royce as his official ride, CNN reported on Tuesday. Prior to that meeting, other sites reportedly under consideration were Geneva and Stockholm.

"I'd love to remove them, but we have to get something for doing it", Trump said. "That's a two-way street".

-North Korea summit soon but didn't seem to have made much progress in steps to make the North abandon its nuclear weapons, Asahi Shimbun reported, citing an anonymous US official.

Pompeo's meeting signaled a change in tone from the recent talks, although there were no immediate indications the secretary of state had arranged for a second major summit between Trump and Kim.

"The US could prefer a reciprocal approach where each side makes a concession step by step, rather than a comprehensive bargain as we did".

A large number of South Korean business leaders accompanied Moon last month to Pyongyang, North Korea's capital, where he and leader Kim Jong Un agreed to normalize operations at the Kaesong factory park and resume joint tours to North Korea when possible, voicing optimism the global sanctions could end and allow such projects. But when asked when inspectors might arrive, Pompeo offered few specifics.

Choe was out of the country-meeting officials in Russian Federation and China-when the Americans arrived.
