President Donald Trump on Tuesday offered up new details about a potential second summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, following Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's meeting with Kim over the weekend.

North Korea is now seeking diplomatic support in its quest to have global sanctions eased and is engaged in negotiations with the U.S. over its nuclear program and ahead of a possible second summit with President Donald Trump aimed at implementing their June accord.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in will deliver Kim's invitation when he visits the Vatican on October 17 and October 18, said spokesperson Kim Eui-kyeom said.

On a more positive note, Wang said China was still willing to solve the trade dispute with the U.S. through negotiations, "but they must be conducted on an equal, honest and serious basis".

Kazianis told CBN's Gary Lane how China can circumvent United States economic sanctions against Kim.

Stressing that the moves directly impacted mutual trust and cast a shadow over China-U.S. relations, Wang urged the United States to immediately stop making negative remarks. Pompeo did not meet Kim on that trip. Washington and Beijing "should and must make the correct choices", Yang said. Catholic priests are prohibited in North Korea.

"As I've said about a thousand times, you've got no rockets flying, you've got no missiles flying, you have no nuclear testing, you have nuclear closings, closing up different areas of North Korea".

North Korea and the Vatican have no diplomatic relations.

"You have no nuclear tests, you have no rockets, and we have a very good relationship with Chairman Kim, which is very important", Trump said. Pompeo was in Tokyo for talks with Japanese officials ahead of his trip to North Korea. A second summit in the coming weeks could boost Trump ahead of US midterm elections in November, but a failure to secure any measurable commitments would undercut what the president has seen so far as a clear foreign policy strength.

Another planned trip by Pompeo to Pyongyang was scrapped after what Trump said was insufficient progress towards implementing the terms of the Singapore declaration.

Russian Federation and China both signaled during the U.N. General Assembly that they expect sanctions against North Korea to be loosened as a reward for concessions purportedly made by the Kim regime.

The Reuters news agency reports North Korea's state-run newspaper had eight photos from the meeting on its front page, including images of Pompeo and Kim smiling and shaking hands.

"I support the courageous decisions of the North and South Korean leaders", the pope said following the first summit in Panmunjom in April.

This is the first time a pope is being invited to North Korea since Kim Jong-un's father, Kim Jong-il, invited Pope John Paul II in 2000. In Beijing, Pompeo met his Chinese counterparts to discuss maintaining sanctions, although unrelated disputes between the two countries spilled into public view and he didn't meet with President Xi Jinping.

The unprecedented summit served as a platform for the two leaders to discuss denuclearising the Korean peninsula.
