S. Korea's Moon: Trump wants to grant Kim Jong Un's wishes

Ri Chun-hee announces the successful test of a hydrogen bomb

-North Korea summit, which Trump has said he hopes to hold with Kim in January or February.

The White House said in a statement on Saturday after Trump's meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping that they and Kim will strive "to see a nuclear free Korean Peninsula". And that, he said, can be done through global climate organizations like the Green Climate Fund and the Global Green Growth Institute, and he welcomed the adoption of the "Buenos Aires Update", part of the G20 nations' efforts to achieve sustainable development.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was due to meet with a top North Korean official in early November, but the meeting was abruptly put off, with North Korea insisting that Washington ease sanctions.

December 3, 2018 (EIRNS)-South Korean President Moon Jae-in spoke to the press after the G20, where he had held a half-hour meeting with President Donald Trump.

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

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. Trump's announcement suggests that the United States still wants North Korea to demonstrate tangible efforts to denuclearize. But differences have emerged between Washington and Seoul on how to proceed with Kim, as the dovish Moon has long favoured engagement with the North.

Kim agreed to travel to Seoul after hosting Moon in Pyongyang in September for their third summit this year.

But prospects of another meeting in coming weeks have dimmed as denuclearisation talks have stalled, prompting Moon to say that the planned visit's timing should not overshadow its historic nature.

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 is now pushing for Kim to visit Seoul before the end of the year, in what would be the first official visit from a North Korean leader to the capital since the end of the Korean War.
