Trump: 'No Rush' to Drop Sanctions Against North Korea
Friday, 9 November 2018 01:13 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

President Donald Trump says he is in "no rush" to finalize a deal with North Korea and remove sanctions.

"I would love to take the sanctions off, but they have to be responsive too. It's a two-way street," Trump said during a lengthy White House news conference Wednesday.

He told reporters he has made more progress with North Korea than any other administration and that he still plans another summit with Kim Jong Un early next year.

Trump spoke just hours after Thursday's scheduled meeting between U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and senior Kim adviser Kim Yong Chol was called off.

Neither side gave any firm reason why the talks were postponed other than State Department deputy spokesman Robert Palladino calling it "purely a matter of scheduling."

"We're in a pretty good place right now. We are confident going forward," Palladino told reporters. "We're not going to be driven into artificial timelines."

The talks in New York were largely seen as paving the way for the second Trump-Kim summit.
