Trump supports plan for humanitarian food aid to North Korea: Yonhap

Trump supports plan for humanitarian food aid to North Korea: Yonhap South Korea said that U.S. President Donald Trump supports the country's plan to provide humanitarian food aid to North Korea, Yonhap reported on Tuesday. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in spoke for 35 minutes earlier on Tuesday, during a call in which the two leaders also discussed ways to continue dialogue with Pyonyang, the South Korean news agency reported. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The White House said Wednesday Trump would make the stop as part of a trip to Asia to attend the G20 summit in Japan.

In South Korea, Trump will meet with his counterpart Moon Jae-in, who has encouraged his talks with Kim in an effort to tamp down tensions on the Korean peninsula.

"President Trump and President Moon will continue their close coordination on efforts to achieve the final, fully verified denuclearization of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea," the White House said. "The two leaders will also discuss ways to strengthen the United States-Republic of Korea alliance and the friendship between our two peoples."

Trump's second summit with Kim collapsed in February after the North insisted sanctions be lifted on the country. The US, which has prodded Pyongyang to abandon its nuclear program to little avail, balked at the demand.

Since then, North Korea has resumed tests of short-range missiles.

Trump said last week that "nobody's happy about" the new tests, but insisted his relationship with Kim would persist.

"The relationship continues, but we'll see what happens," Trump said. "They want to negotiate, they're talking about negotiating, but I don't think they're ready to negotiate."

N.Korea blames U.S. for failed summit, urges 'new calculation'.
North Korea said on Friday an "arbitrary and dishonest" U.S. position had resulted in the failure to reach a deal during a second North Korea-U.S. summit, warning the nuclear issue would never be resolved without a new approach. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); A spokesman for North Korea's foreign ministry accused the United States of trying to shift the blame for the breakdown of the summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S.
