Kim Jong-un Invites Moon for Summit in Mid-September

He says North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has sent him another the two sides look to start engaging each other again. on the regime's denuclearization.

Trump's comments came after Kim reportedly said his faith in the USA president was unchanged and that Pyongyang aimed to achieve denuclearisation within Trump's first term in office, which is due to end in January 2020.

The senior officials stressed the need to return to the "Japan-DPRK Pyongyang Declaration" signed in September 2002 by former Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi and North Korean leader Kim Jong Il.

Matvienko also said she had passed a message from President Vladimir Putin to Kim - but did not reveal the contents of the letter.

Kim Jong Un of North Korea proclaims "unwavering faith in President Trump".

"If needed, we should pull forward the negotiations for the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula with the development in relations between the South and North", Chung said.

Pompeo, visiting New Delhi, said there was a long road ahead and "an enormous amount of work to do" on the denuclearisation process.

At their first meeting, the two leaders "agreed to formally end the war before the year's end", Yonhap added.

USA intelligence officials are even more wary about Pyongyang's repeated commitments to denuclearize.

US President Donald Trump has thanked Kim Jong Un for his support.

"We will not allow North Korea to undermine global cybersecurity to advance its interests and generate illicit revenues in violation of our sanctions", Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement.

"The schoolchildren, conscious that a single slip in their action may spoil their mass gymnastic performance, make every effort to subordinate all their thoughts and actions to the collective", he reportedly said.

The State Department later said Pompeo was sending his newly appointed North Korea envoy, Stephen Biegun, to South Korea, China and Japan from September 10-15.

North Korea said the request to circulate the document to the 193 United Nations member states "shows full determination of North and South Korea to keep advancing the North-South ties without deviation" and to demonstrate that they "have entered definitely the new orbit of peace, the orbit of reconciliation and co-operation".

North Korea is expected to hold a huge military parade on Sunday - the first since negotiations with the United States over denuclearisation began - as the country celebrates the 70th anniversary of its founding.

However, there has been no indication that Kim has offered more concrete steps towards giving up his nuclear weapons and some USA officials privately doubt he is willing to abandon the arsenal.

Gérard Depardieu, the enfant awful of French cinema, has been spotted in the North Korean capital Pyongyang hours before the 70th anniversary of the country's birth.

On arrival Chung handed a smiling Kim a letter from President Moon Jae-in detailing cross-border economic cooperation plans and urged North Korea to speed up denuclearization, according to Cheong Wa Dae.

Chinese President Xi Jinping will attend a regional summit in Russian Federation next week, officials said on Friday - a gathering that may include North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and the heads of Japan and South Korea.

President Trump added that his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will deliver Kim's letter to him, when he returns to the USA from his visit to India.

The phrase "complete denuclearization" - a term long preferred by North Korea - could be read to preclude nuclear-capable USA bombers and submarines from operating near South Korea.

But since meeting with Mr. Trump at a summit in June, hardly any progress has been made in getting the North to hand over its nuclear weapons.
