The President of South Korea is calling for another meeting between President Trump and North Korean Dictator Kim Jong-Un before the November elections.
According to The Hill:
South Korean President Moon Jae-in has called on President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to meet again before the U.S. presidential election in November, a Seoul official said Wednesday, according to Reuters.
Moon reportedly announced the proposition during a remote video conference with European Council President Charles Michel, saying that another summit between Trump and Kim would restart the stalled nuclear negotiations, according to an official from Moon’s office.
“I believe there’s a need for North Korea and the United States to try dialogue one more time before the U.S. presidential election,” the official quoted Moon as saying. “The issues of nuclear programmes and sanctions will ultimately have to be resolved through North Korea-U.S. talks.”
U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Stephen Biegun, who was in charge of working-level negotiations with the North Koreans, said Monday that there could still be time to “make substantial progress” if talks were to resume.
Biegun also stated that holding a meeting before November looks unlikely due to the complications from COVID-19.
