Trump to meet North Korea's Kim Jong Un in new year

Trump Kim Jong Un has been open terrific

"We're getting along very well. We have a good relationship".

A North Korean soldier defected to South Korea across the eastern land border on Saturday, the South's military said.

North Korea was angered by Washington's refusal to ease sanctions and warned it could resume its nuclear programme.

A team of South Korean officials boarded to investigate how the North's rail network can be modernised and potentially linked up to the South.

U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un walk together before their working lunch during their summit at the Capella Hotel on the resort island of Sentosa, Singapore June 12, 2018.

Trump also met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Friday, when they reviewed the recent developments in the DPRK and discussed how best to work with the worldwide community, including South Korea, to maintain pressure until the DPRK implements its commitment to denuclearise.

Moon spoke to reporters on Saturday aboard his presidential plane en route to New Zealand from Argentina, where he met Trump on the sidelines of a Group of 20 Nations summit.

But Netanyahu may want to seek a renewed mandate from the people, forcing a prosecutor to think twice before indicting him. Netanyahu has been prime minister for a total of more than 12 years, from 1996 to 1999 and again since 2009.

She added that Trump and Moon renewed their commitment "to achieve the final, fully verified denuclearization" of the North and agreed on the need to maintain economic sanctions "to ensure the DPRK understands that denuclearization is the only path".

Last November, a North Korean soldier was critically wounded in a jointly controlled area after he fled to the South amid a hail of bullets fired by his former comrades. Moon said it's still unclear whether Kim will visit Seoul by the end of this year, and that it's up to the North Korean leader.

They have also begun work to reconnect a train line and fix another rail link across the border.

Moon said he had a message from Trump to Kim Jong Un about Trump's friendly views toward the North Korean leader.

In his talks with Trump at the G-20 in Argentina, Moon earned some support for the Seoul summit from the U.S. leader - perhaps in a bid to entice Kim to make good on his pledge.

The South Korean government is optimistic over Kim's visit to Seoul, which he promised during the third inter-Korean summit in September in Pyongyang.
