Seoul - Donald Trump wants North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to know that he likes him and will fulfill his wishes, South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in said on Sunday, a day after meeting the U.S. president at an economic summit in Argentina.

Moon, who is hoping to host Kim soon on the first ever trip to Seoul by a North Korean leader as agreed earlier this year, said Trump had asked him to pass on a message.

“The message is that President Trump has very favorable views toward Chairman Kim and he likes him,” Moon told reporters aboard a flight from Argentina to New Zealand, where he started a three-day state visit on Sunday.

“As such, he asked me to tell Chairman Kim that he wants to implement the rest of their agreement together and he will fulfill Chairman Kim’s wishes.”

Trump, who met Kim in Singapore in June, said on Saturday that he is likely to meet the North Korean leader for a second time in January or February, with three sites for their meeting under consideration.

“We’re getting along very well. We have a good relationship,” Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One on his return from the G20 summit. Trump added that at some point he will invite Kim to the United States.

Kim and Trump pledged at their first meeting to work towards denuclearisation, although the two sides have since made little progress agreeing on a timeline or concrete steps.

The White House said in a statement on Saturday after Trump’s meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping that they and Kim will strive “to see a nuclear free Korean Peninsula”. The statement said Xi and Trump “agreed that great progress has been made with respect to North Korea.”

Trump has frequently described a warm personal relationship with Kim, arguing that this rapport would help him succeed at a diplomatic breakthrough that has eluded U.S. presidents since the 1950s.

In September Trump drew applause from a crowd of supporters at a campaign rally by describing “beautiful” letters he had exchanged with Kim, saying: “We fell in love, ok?”

Trump’s critics say such warm words have so far failed to yield concrete concessions from one of the world’s most authoritarian states.

Trump’s latest praise for Kim, in the formal setting of a summit with Moon, shows that he is still emphasizing his personal rapport despite stalled nuclear talks.

Moon said a second summit between Kim and Trump will prove to be the “most critical moment” for North Korea’s denuclearisation.

A China expert recently said that Trump has to realize that this is not real estate. Personal relationships mean nothing compared to history and geography. A leader of another country is not going to make concessions based upon personal relationships.

Nope the president is doing just fine. This is how you open him up and then break him. The more you lick him and open up the NK's to the world the more secularized and noraml they will become. It's a smart game. So sad you miss it

And the point of that scholar is that people like you superimpose their own experiences on a dissimilar situation. What works in one place may not work with a mass murdering paranoid despot. I supported Trump meeting with Kim. I thought he was right. But this buddy-buddy stuff is pretty basic. Kim isn't atupid.

What a lovely shidduch!!!

So nice to see such love, respect and admiration between a new couple.

They have so many shared values. Both inherited their wealth and power and neither intends to ever relinquish any of it and the kallah already wears a sheitel!!!

Can anyone provide an example of freedom winning over tyranny and dictatorship by playing nice? Other than Neville Chamberlain guaranteeing peace in his time by sacrificing the Sudetanland to appease Hitler ym"s, of course.

China deal is not going smoothly. Timber industry in Southern Missouri, soybean farmers, nail and aluminum manufacturers, sheet metal industries are all suffering tremendously. Hoping for a good result but Trump had no business putting tariffs on things that hurt the U.S. more than China (China is already sourcing soybeans elsewhere). All of Trump's advisers except Navarro warned him not to do this. He was supposed to put tariffs on industries stealing U.S. technology, not on furniture, trimmings, Formica and everything else we need in the housing and manufacturing industry.

Bush and Reagan with Gorbachev. They played nice and eased the Soviet Union out of socialism.

Only one I can think of.

Any even undergraduate study of foreign affairs makes it clear that interests, not personalities or personal relationships dominate foreign relations.

You're ignorant as usual Archy...I'm not here all that often anymore, but whenever I am, I can be assured that I will find you're here, wasting your employer's time...and playing the self-appointed role of All-Knowing.

I don't need my law degree to stay informed and understand that buttering up someone like Kim without real policy solutions is not going to do anything.

Having said that, I wouldn't imagine any degree impresses you because you are self-under-educated.

But you gotta love Achy's confidence. Only someone that uneducated could be that definitive and dismissive of inarguable facts and data.

Shows you know nothing about the markets. But China is not going fine. I hope it does, but right now, it is not going well at all. China still isn't even clear on the U.S. full list of demands.

Volvo cites the China problem a reason why they are slowing hiring in South Carolina.Real Wood Floors employs 150 people in poorest section of Missouri and their business is almost frozen. Meat processors are losing money per transaction.

Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis claims that 84 farms filed for bankruptcy in Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and Montana in the 12 months that ended in June. That’s more than double the number over the same period in 2013 and 2014.

No, it's not going well. If Obama did this you would castigate him.

I also only write under one name.
