Trump tells Moon time not ripe for North Korea concessions

South Korean leader pushes for 'maintaining momentum'

NEW YORK/WASHINGTON -- U.S. President Donald Trump told South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Thursday that the time was not right to expand economic cooperation with North Korea, and that such concessions should come only after a deal is reached in which the North agrees to abandon its nuclear weapons.

Trump was asked by a Korean reporter ahead of his meeting with Moon whether he supported the South Korean leader's efforts to expand economic assistance to North Korea.
