Pompeo would not confirm to reporters at Monday's briefing the timeline for when such a summit would take place, but said, "Lord willing, I'll be traveling before the end or the year", to continue discussions with his counterparts in Pyongyang.

"Our two countries have set an example of friendship and cooperation for trade that rarely you see in this age", he said.

Twelve months earlier, Mr Trump had stood in front of the UN General Assembly and called North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a "little rocket man" on a "suicide mission".

Trump says it will happen in the "not too distant" future but they will not meet in the same place.

The top USA diplomat is defending President Donald Trump's decision to seek out a second summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un even though Kim's government has not followed through on commitments to halt its nuclear program.

"I think our farmers are going to be extremely happy, it was very limited as to what they could do and what they could send and now it's a open market and they're going to be sending a lot more farm products".

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is in NY to attend United Nations meetings.

Last month, Trump canceled the planned visit of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Pyongyang, citing insufficient progress towards the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

The White House has not closed the door on a Rouhani-Trump meeting.

Businesses are also anxious about the impact of retaliatory tariffs to those Mr Trump's administration has imposed on steel and aluminium imports and Chinese goods.

"Naturally, if someone is keen on having a meeting and holding dialogue and creating progress in relationships, that person would not use the tool of sanctions and threats (and bring) to bear all of its power against another government and nation", Rouhani said. "We'll be doing that", he said. The penalties are a result of Trump's decision to withdraw the USA from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

Bolton, like Pompeo, is part of a far more hawkish national security team than the one that surrounded Trump a year ago.

The comments come a year after Trump used a United Nations speech to threaten to "totally destroy" North Korea and called Kim "rocket man".

Trump is scheduled to meet with Moon on Monday afternoon to discuss security and trade issues. Mr. Moon is expected to convey to Mr. Trump a personal message from Mr. Kim delivered at their inter-Korean talks last week.

Since then, the two leaders have held a summit in Singapore in June, which Trump hailed as a breakthrough in getting North Korea to disarm.

Kicking off his meetings, Trump addressed "the world drug problem and a big problem it is" at an event that saw 130 countries pledge in general terms to step up action to fight the illegal drug trade and combat addiction.

Even so, some US officials worry that South Korea's eagerness to restore relations with the North - known as its "sunshine policy" - could reduce sanctions pressure on Kim's government, hampering efforts to negotiate a nuclear accord.
