Trump Praises Kim Jong Un, Says "We Will Get It Done Together!"

Two Koreas agree to hold September summit in Pyongyang: Seoul

The leaders of North and South Korea are to hold a summit meeting in Pyongyang later this month to discuss "practical measures" to denuclearise the Korean peninsula.

Senior South Korean official Chung Eui-yong told reporters Thursday that Kim made the comments while reaffirming his commitment to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula during their meeting in Pyongyang this week.

"I can not reveal it here, but (Kim) asked for a message to be conveyed to the United States on the matter", Chung said.

Trump appears to have welcomed that message, writing in a tweet: "Thank you to Chairman Kim. We will get it done together!"

The South Korean envoy's visit to Pyongyang came amid a deadlock on the North's atomic weapons, with USA efforts to dismantle the arsenal stalled for weeks.

South Korea's Yonhap News on Thursday quoted analysts who took Kim's remarks as a positive sign.

But Pyongyang has since slammed Washington for its "gangster-like" demands for complete, verifiable and irreversible disarmament.

"There is still an enormous amount of work to do".

North Korea accused the USA of making "unilateral and gangster-like" demands for denuclearization and hampering talks on the end-of-war declaration.

Chung said Kim had stressed the need for the United States to reciprocate North Korea's initial moves, which have included dismantling a nuclear test site and a missile engine facility.

Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in will meet in the North Korean capital on September 18-20, during which they will discuss "practical measures" toward denuclearisation, the South's national security adviser, Chung Eui-yong, told reporters a day after meeting Kim in Pyongyang.

The South Korean envoys who met Kim on Wednesday finalized the dates for a summit later this month between Kim and South Korean President Moon Jae-in, the driving force behind the current diplomacy.

"Chairman Kim Jong-un reiterated his firm commitment to the complete denuclearization of the peninsula, and expressed his intent to maintain close inter-Korean cooperation, and with the US", Chung said.

He even expressed regret that the global community does not appreciate such meaningful steps taken by his country, the South Korean envoy said.

"He said he's pre-emptively taken steps necessary for denuclearization and wants to see these goodwill measures being met with goodwill measures", he added.

Chung also revealed that Kim had expressed exasperation at the worldwide community's doubt over his intentions and its assessment of the steps North Korea had taken.

And he asked for a message to be delivered to Trump. Negotiations since then have been rocky and settled into a stalemate.

"The north and the south should further their efforts to realize the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula", KCNA cited Kim as saying.

The Korean War ended with an armistice agreement, which technically leaves the peninsula at war.

"The United States shouldn't delay any further an end-of-war declaration, which the USA president promised at the Singapore summit", the North's state-run Rodong Sinmun newspaper stated in an editorial, Reuters reported.

The North Korean leader said he is willing to cooperate with both Seoul and Washington on denuclearisation, according to the envoy.
