Trump to South Korea's Moon: Open to Talks with North at 'Appropriate Time'
Thursday, 11 January 2018 20:28 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

U.S. President Donald Trump says he is open to talks with North Korea 'at the appropriate time.'

In a telephone conversation with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Wednesday, Trump œexpressed his openness to holding talks between the United States and North Korea at the appropriate time under the right circumstances, according to a readout of the call issued by the White House.

"The two leaders underscored the importance of continuing the maximum pressure campaign against North Korea," the statement said.

President Moon™s office first reported the conversation, which came a day after North and South Korea held their first talks in more than two years. The South Korean readout said Trump had agreed that there would be no military action while any talks were in progress.

Trump and Moon both held news conferences Wednesday at which they spoke about the prospects for a more stable Korean peninsula, where tensions have been at peak levels for months.
