This would be the third meeting this year between the two leaders.

.

"He wanted to end some 70 years of animosity between North Korea and the United States and achieve denuclearization within President Trump's first term", Chung said of his conversation with Kim.

Mr Moon will visit the North from 18 to 20 September to discuss "practical measures to denuclearise" the Korean peninsula, officials from South Korea said after meeting Mr Kim in Pyongyang.

On Thursday, a South Korean envoy who recently returned from meeting with Kim in Pyongyang said that the communist leader reiterated his commitment to denuclearize "if the countermeasures are taken simultaneously".

The North Korean leader said he is willing to cooperate with both Seoul and Washington on denuclearisation, according to the envoy.

Kim's remarks about Trump's term, if conveyed accurately, would represent his first commitment to something resembling a timetable for nuclear talks with the US leader.

USA officials have insisted that a peace declaration, which many see as a precursor to the North eventually calling for the removal of all United States troops from the Korean Peninsula, can not come before North Korea takes more concrete action toward abandoning its nuclear weapons.

During the Seoul envoys' trip, the two sides agreed that Kim and Moon would meet in Pyongyang on September 18-20, in their third summit since April.

"Kim Jong Un of North Korea proclaims 'unwavering faith in President Trump.' Thank you to Chairman Kim".

Reports indicate the president is feeling the squeeze after being hit with a double whammy: reports of chaos in the West Wing in Bob Woodward's new book and the New York Times essay that describes the president as "impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective" and says the author is part of an organized "resistance" whose goal is 'to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting [President] Trump's more misguided impulses until he is out of office'. "He expressed his strong will to carry out more proactive measures toward denuclearisation if action is taken in response to the North's preemptive steps".

I'm also thinking the irony is that while I am not privy to the numbers, it's likely he gained a lucrative Nike contract. The commercial has polarized opinion, with Trump among those critical of Nike for giving Kaepernick a public platform.

Chung said that Kim's faith in U.S. President Donald Trump is unchanged since their summit in Singapore on June 12. He said not enough progress had been made toward denuclearization.

The next step in nuclear diplomacy is uncertain.

Signalling that Washington's concerns extend beyond Pyongyang's nuclear program, the USA government on Thursday filed criminal charges and imposed sanctions against an alleged North Korean hacker over the 2014 cyber attack on Sony Corp. and other "malign cyber activities".

Kim's message was conveyed to U.S. national security adviser John Bolton over the phone at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Korean time, according to Cheong Wa Dae spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom. Chung said there was no discussion with Kim about rescheduling that trip.

Chung, whose official title is presidential national security director, spoke with his US counterpart, John Bolton, on the phone on Thursday about his trip to North Korea.

A peace declaration could put the U.S.in a tricky position.

Now, Pyongyang is pushing for a peace treaty - and is insinuating that the U.S.is standing in the way.

Kim insisted that formally ending the Korean War had nothing to do with USA troops stationed in South Korea, Chung said.

North Korea has accused the United States of making "unilateral and gangster-like" demands for denuclearization and holding back on the end-of-war declaration.

But American officials and conservatives in the South are concerned such a declaration would weaken the US-South Korea alliance and deprive the 28,000 US forces stationed on the peninsula of their deployment rationale.
