Trump to grant Kim Jong Un's wishes after denuclearisation: South Korea president

Former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has urged North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to take concrete steps toward complete denuclearisation and gain the trust of the worldwide community if he wants sanctions lifted.

A North Korean soldier defected to South Korea across the eastern land border on Saturday, Seoul's Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said.

"We're getting along very well, we have a good relationship", Trump also said.

Furthermore, he said he would be interested in inviting Kim to the USA for talks at "some point" in the future.

Moon spoke to reporters on Saturday aboard his presidential plane en route to New Zealand from Argentina, where he met Trump on the sidelines of a Group of 20 Nations summit.

Mr Kim and Mr 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 rare defection came as the two Koreas push ahead with a process of reconciliation in an effort to ease tensions, despite talks between Pyongyang and Washington on the North's nuclear weapons programme stalling.

The total number of tensor cores and RTX cores are both slightly higher, at 576 and 72, as opposed to 544 and 68. Titan RTX also marks a return of SLI ( NVLink ) support to the Titan line, after it was missing in the Titan V.

After deriding Kim a year ago as "little rocket man" and threatening his country with "fire and fury", Trump has bestowed Kim with praise.

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

South Korean troops guided the North Korean defector to safety after surveillance equipment detected him crossing an eastern section of the so-called Military Demarcation Line that bisects the peninsula, the military said in a text message.

And days before the meeting between Xi and Trump in Buenos Aires, an adviser to China's foreign ministry said it would be "impossible" for North Korea to completely give up its nuclear weapons, and the USA should instead focus on more incremental progress.

The Koreas and the U.S. -led U.N. Command recently finished removing firearms and troops from the jointly controlled area at the border village of Panmunjom, and eventually plan to allow tourists to freely move around there.

The president tells reporters that there are three sites under consideration, but he's not identifying them.

If that happens, he would be the first North Korean leader to do so since the end of the 1950-1953 Korean War, though the plan is still unclear.
