Trump and Kim should meet again before United States polls: Moon

  • Trump in 2018 became the first sitting US president to meet the leader of North Korea

South Korea's top office says it has relayed Moon's idea to the White House, adding that Washington has expressed understanding.

The South Korean presidential office earlier warned that the government would crack down on such acts, which it said constitute a violation of laws including the inter-Korean exchange and cooperation act.

"The U.S. side understands (Moon's position), and it's now making efforts (for that), as far as I know", he told reporters on the condition of anonymity. But their second summit, in 2019 in Vietnam, fell apart when Trump rejected Kim's offer to dismantle North Korea's main nuclear facility in return for lifting some economic sanctions.

Biegun, however, said an in-person summit would be hard before the November election, citing the coronavirus pandemic which has all but wiped the world's diplomatic calendar clean.

The broker, a woman in her early 50s from Musan County, was exiled after making frequent calls to both South Korea and China while managing remittances from defectors in those countries, according to a Daily NK source in North Hamgyong Province on Monday.

North Korea has since walked away from the talks, conducted frequent missile tests, and lobbed more threats and insults, mainly at its neighbors in South Korea.

It's also not clear whether North Korea would agree to hold another summit.

Inter-Korean relations have been in deep freeze following the collapse of a summit between Kim and US President Donald Trump early past year over what the nuclear-armed North would be willing to give up in exchange for a loosening of sanctions.

Trump and Kim met for the first time in 2018 in Singapore, raising hopes of an agreement to get Pyongyang to give up its nuclear weapons programme.

The ambassador also dismissed speculation about Kim's sister, Kim Yo-jong, allegedly being trained as the next North Korea's head of state, pointing out that "no one dares to call themselves number two in the country". The sanctions have prevented South Korea from moving ahead with the deals.

Trump also met Kim during a historic meeting in the demilitarized zone between North and South Korea past year in which they agreed to restart nuclear talks, but talks between the countries in Sweden fell apart in October. Moon added that with patience, he will continue working to keep up momentum for talks between Seoul, Pyeongyang and Washington. However, the North's motives became muddied after Kim last week abruptly suspended the pressure campaign without explanation.

In June, South Korean authorities voiced their intent to introduce new laws that would bar activists from launching propaganda leaflets across the border to North Korea, as while police officers are sometimes dispatched to block such activities, Seoul never fully banned them, arguing that the activists were merely exercising their freedoms.
