Donald Trump: next Kim Jong-un meeting likely in January or February

South Korean President Moon Jae-in, second from right, is greeted by North Koreans as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, right, watches during a welcome ceremony at Sunan International Airport in Pyongyang, North Korea, Sept. 18, 2018.

Furthermore, he said he would be interested in inviting Kim to the USA for talks at "some point" in the future.

As officials work to arrange a second meeting between Trump and Kim, South Korea's Moon Jae-in relayed a message to reporters given to him by the U.S. president to pass on to the North's leader.

Trump, speaking aboard Air Force One on his return from Argentina, tells reporters that he and Kim are "getting along very well" and have a "good relationship".

The two sides have been engaged in talks on the leaders' second meeting after the first, unprecedented, one in Singapore in June.

Meanwhile, the White House said that Trump had agreed with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday to strive to "see a nuclear-free Korean peninsula".

"I think it will be absolutely imperative in this next summit that we come away with a plan for identifying all of the weapons in question, identifying all the development sites, allowing for inspections of the sites and the plan for dismantling nuclear weapons", Pence said in November.

It will be similar in format to the current Champions League and Europa League with 32 teams in a group format . There will be eight groups each featuring four teams, with only the winners advancing automatically.

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

The two leaders signed a vaguely worded document on denuclearization of the peninsula, but progress since has stalled as Washington and Pyongyang spar and North Korea has taken few concrete steps to abandon its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

A North Korean soldier defected to South Korea across the eastern land border on Saturday, Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said. It was essential that global sanctions pressure be maintained on North Korea until its complete denuclearisation was achieved, he said.

Differences also remain between Washington and Seoul on how to proceed with Kim, as the dovish Moon favors more robust engagement with the North.

Moon said he and Trump agreed during their meeting that Kim's trip to Seoul would play a "very positive role" in U.S. The South Koreans have expressed hope the visit - which would be a first for a North Korean leader - could happen by the end of this year.

Ban has urged North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to take concrete steps toward complete denuclearization and gain the trust of the global community if he wants sanctions lifted.
