Donald Trump and his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in signed a renegotiated free-trade agreement on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, marking the first time the USA president has finalised a major trade deal since entering office.

"A lot of progress" was being made, he said, speaking alongside South Korean President Moon Jae-in in NY.

Trump, during a meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the United Nations, said: "Chairman Kim has been really very open and terrific, frankly".

Mr. Kim requested a second meeting with Mr. Trump in a letter this month, and Mr. Trump said, "we will be doing that".

He said that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo - whose last planned visit to Pyongyang was abruptly scuttled by the White House - would arrange the summit "in the immediate future".

How close are North and South Korea to a nuclear-free peninsula?

While relations with Kim have improved dramatically, leaders attending the annual assembly will hear how another of Trump's adversaries, Iran's Hassan Rouhani, remains a top target of the American president's ire.

Trump commented Monday in NY during an appearance with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. El-Sissi said it's an obligation Trump has made clear.

Attention is focused on what President Trump will say about North Korea, considering the rather conciliatory approach he's taken recently.

Efforts to resume economic cooperation are limited by US -led sanctions linked to the North's banned nuclear weapons program.

The U.S. has been asking North Korea to provide detailed information about its nuclear arsenal and facilities, but the North has refused to even discuss it, multiple sources told ABC News.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (pahm-PAY'-oh) said Monday on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, "We've been at this the other way an awfully long time and failed".

No decision had yet been taken as to the venue, he said.

The UN's number one financial backer, the United States has moved under Trump to cut funding to the world body, notably to peacekeeping missions that are key to the UN's goal of promoting peace and security.

Kawhi Leonard says he’s focussed on leading Raptors to a championship
When asked if he views his time with the Raptors as a long-term commitment, Leonard said he views it as a day-to-day process. It's a great organzation and I was happy Danny [Green] was coming with me. "I can't give you a spiel about me".

Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, told reporters in a preview of Trump's visit, that the president's focus "will be very much on the United States", its role and the relations it wants to build.

Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian says the U.N. General Assembly this week will test whether people like Trump are "playing together or playing lone horseman, whether they are seeking solutions or sticking to slogans".

The comments come a year after Trump used a United Nations speech to threaten to "totally destroy" North Korea and called Kim "rocket man".

"That was a very risky time". Moon is expected to convey to Trump a personal message from Kim delivered at their inter-Korean talks last week.

Kicking off his meetings, Trump addressed "the world drug problem and a big problem it is" at an event that saw 130 countries pledge in general terms to step up action to fight the illegal drug trade and combat addiction.

Bolton, like Pompeo, is part of a far more hawkish national security team than the one that surrounded Trump a year ago.
