South Korea considers lifting some sanctions on Pyongyang

Still, he said the administration had "made incredible progress" in negotiations over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program and was considering three to four locations for a second summit.

Earlier on Tuesday, Trump told reporters that plans were being made for his second summit with Kim and that he thought "incredible" progress had been made in US talks with the long-isolated North Asian country.

Trump has encouraged United States allies to maintain sanctions on North Korea until it denuclearises as part of what his administration has termed a campaign of "maximum pressure" against Kim Jong-Un's government.

Trump said that his second meeting with Kim would be in "probably a different location" than Singapore.

Trump and Kim signed a vague agreement in Singapore in June to "work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula", but have so far struggled for a deal on the pace and sequence of steps to achieve that goal.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has again made a mockery of the USA policy towards Pyongyang when meeting with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, this time in decidedly flashy style. "I wouldn't say he made strong expressions. We'll continue to make significant progress, and we are further along in making that progress than any administration in an awfully long time".

"No nuclear tests, no rockets, and we have a very good relationship with Chairman Kim, which is very important", Trump said. "I like him, he likes me, the relationship is good". They said the North Korean leader appeared simply to be repackaging and dragging out past pledges.

The U.S. and Japan have pushed for the North to compile and turn over a detailed list of its nuclear sites to be dismantled as a next step in the process; the North has rejected that demand.

Kim suggested that he will invite a USA inspection team to verify the explosion that the North said disabled its Punggye-ri nuclear test site in May.

Trump said "eventually we're going to have lots of meetings on USA soil and on their soil by the way".

Trump canceled Pompeo's planned trip to North Korea in August after he felt North Korea wasn't doing enough to help with the process of denuclearization.

South Koreans are deeply divided along ideological lines and many people still harbor deep anger over North Korea's 1950 attack that started the Korean War, killing and injuring millions. Seoul's Unification Ministry said Tuesday that water being supplied to the office is being provided to the town's residents as well.

"I will tell you they're calling, wanting to go there and wanting to invest", Trump said. "And I think he knows it and I think that's one of the reasons that we're having very successful conversations".
