Washington DC, Sep 13: US President Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in are expected to hold a meet at the United Nations (UN) later this month, according to Moon’s presidential office, in attempts to relaunch denuclearization talks between the United States and North Korea.

The announcement has come post North Korean leader Kim Jong-un’s willingness to reopen doors for negotiations with the Trump administration aimed at dismantling Pyongyang’s nuclear weapon.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has on Monday said he seeks new round of negotiations between Kim and Trump in the upcoming days.

On Tuesday, the South Korean officials said Pyongyang fired a new round of short-range missile, hours after expressing willingness to relaunch denuclearization negotiations with the United States.

Kim claimed the rocket launcher’s capabilities have been finally “verified in terms of combat operation”, and what continues to be completed with the launcher is a “running fire test”, the KCNA said, without offering further information over the test.

Kim ordered the officials – who joined him, different ways to “steadily” look for cutting-edge national defence. Kim was also accompanied by top-level officials, as well as, Kim Yo Jong, the leader’s sister, KCNA reported.
