Trump says 'most likely' to meet N. Korea's Kim again: report

WASHINGTON (Kyodo) -- U.S. President Donald Trump said Monday he would "most likely" meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un again following their historic summit in June in Singapore, according to a news report.

"It's most likely we will, but I just don't want to comment," Trump told Reuters in an interview, without providing details on the timing or venue.

He made the comment as speculation swirls that the two leaders may hold a second summit on the occasion of Kim's possible participation in the U.N. General Assembly in New York next month.

Asked whether North Korea has taken specific steps to denuclearize other than blowing up its only known nuclear testing site in May, Trump was quoted as saying, "I do believe they have," but he did not elaborate.

In the first-ever U.S.-North Korea summit, Kim committed to "complete" denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

In the interview, Trump complained that China was not helping the United States in reining in North Korea as much as it had in the past because of a trade dispute between Washington and Beijing.
