U.S. President Donald Trump and his South Korean counterpart held a summit in New York on Monday to discuss plans to restart U.S.-North Korea talks, as the allies hold discussions in Seoul on sharing the cost of American soldiers stationed in South Korea, APA reports quoting Reuters.
Though negotiations with North Korea have stalled since a failed second summit between Trump and its leader Kim Jong Un in February, the North has said it is willing to restart working-level talks in late September. However, no date or location have been set.
Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in discussed ways to achieve practical results in the U.S.-North Korea working-level talks, South Korea’s presidential office said, while Trump expressed his confidence that Kim will fulfill commitments made during the two summits, a White House statement said.
“There’s been no nuclear testing at all,” Trump told reporters as he met Moon on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly.
