"UN Wasn't Laughing At Me, They Were Laughing With Me", Says Trump

27 September 2018

President Donald Trump is pictured speaking during his meeting with Colombian President Iván Duque at the United Nations.

Referring to North Korea by the acronym of its official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, the State Department said the aim of the meeting would be "further progress on the implementation of the commitments from the U.S. -DPRK Singapore summit, including the final, fully verified denuclearization of the DPRK, and to prepare for a second summit".

The five remaining parties to the 2015 accord - France, Britain, Germany, China and Russian Federation - agreed during a meeting in NY late Monday to set up a payment system to preserve business ties with Iran despite USA sanctions.

"Didn't expect that reaction but that's OK", the president said laughing off the chuckles that rippled through the hall. The trip will focus on laying a foundation for a successful summit, the official said, and creating a basis for more negotiations.

In an interview with US news network Fox, the South Korean president also expressed his conviction that the communist state will give up its nuclear weapons because its denuclearization pledge comes from its highest leader.

USA warns Russian Federation over providing Syria with missile defense system
Russian Federation in April had hinted that it would supply the S-300 to Assad's government despite Israeli objections. In denying responsibility for the incident, Israel blamed Syria and its allies Iran and Hezbollah.

The South Korean president said he and Trump also discussed the possibility of formally ending the 1950-53 war when they met here the day before. He said Beijing's change in behavior was due to his administration's "much tougher Trading stance with China".

North Korea's Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho arrived in NY on Tuesday to attend the United Nations General Assembly, where he is expected to deliver a speech on Saturday.

"Iran's aggression has only increased, [the country] has used the new funds to support terrorism and built nuclear-capable missiles", Trump said.

"He wants to see things happen for North Korea that are great", Trump said.

Trump said the United States "will not be taken advantage of any longer", criticizing how he believed other nations had ripped the U.S. off on trade and defence spending.

The Trump administration says United Nations sanctions against North Korea will remain in place until the country denuclearizes.

In his UN address a year ago, Trump bashed the nuclear deal as "an embarrassment", signalling that the United States was ready to walk away.

"This includes illegal ship-to-ship transfers, which must end immediately", Trump said.

He dismissed such concerns, saying a declaration would only be a political or symbolic gesture aimed at providing some security assurances to the North, which agreed to give up its nuclear weapons in exchange for security guarantees from the U.S. Let my message today be clear: "We are watching, and we will come after you", he will say.

"I told Mike Pompeo, I said: Mike don't get into the time frame", the president said.
