S. Korea's Moon calls for new US-N. Korea meeting

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said his United States counterpart Donald Trump and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un should have one more meeting before the US presidential elections on November 3, a Seoul official confirmed on Wednesday.

Moon hopes the summit would help resume negotiations over the denuclearization of North Korea and ensure peace in the region amid rising tensions in recent weeks.

US lead negotiator on Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program Stephen Biegun said earlier this week Trump is "not likely" to meet with Kim before his potential reelection.
