While heading for a meeting with Moon and the leaders from 29 other countries at the United Nations headqurters Monday, the U.S. president said his second summit with the North Korean leader may take place "quite soon", the Associated Press reported. "(Secretary of State Mike) Pompeo will work that out in the immediate future", Trump said, claiming there has been "tremendous progress on North Korea".

"It's always been surprising to me that more things aren't resolved", Trump said in a weekend video message, "because you have all of these countries getting together in one location but it doesn't seem to get there".

"As you know Kim Jong Un wrote a letter - a attractive letter - asking for a second meeting and we will be doing that", added Trump who met with Kim in Singapore in June.

The first historic meeting between the two leaders took place in Singapore in June. But that agreement lacked details, and the Trump administration has grown impatient with the Kim regime's lack of engagement.

"The relationships are very good with North Korea..."

One of the most closely-watched will be Monday's meeting with South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in, who will brief him on last week's inter-Korean summit with Kim in Pyongyang.

"Chairman Kim expressed his wish to finish complete denuclearization at an early date and focus on economic development", Moon said of his meeting with the North Korean leader in Pyongyang.

President Trump attends a meeting on the global drug problem at the United Nations, with U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, a day ahead of the official opening of the 73rd United Nations General Assembly, on Monday, in New York City.

Another US-North Korea summit will happen "quite soon", Donald Trump has said.

As he begins the sequel to his stormy United Nations debut, President Donald Trump will again confront the dangers posed by North Korea's nuclear threat, though its shadow may appear somewhat less ominous than a year ago. That was a very risky time.

Trump's address to the General Assembly comes Tuesday, and on Wednesday he will for the first time chair the Security Council, with the stated topic of non-proliferation of nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.

The nuclear threat was on the agenda at Trump's first meeting in NY, a dinner with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Manhattan on Sunday night.
