US National Security Advisor John Bolton leaves a press conference in Moscow

North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump held a groundbreaking summit in Singapore in June.

"Iran's oil exports and its revenues are stable and we don't have any problem in providing the basic goods to people", Eshaq Jahangiri was quoted as saying by the state news agency IRNA.

Ahmad Khatami also told worshippers attending Eid prayers in Tehran that President Donald Trump's offer of talks with Iranian leaders was unacceptable as the us leader wanted Tehran to concede on its missile programme and regional influence.

Trump said he believes Pyongyang had taken specific steps toward denuclearization, despite widespread doubts about Kim's willingness to abandon his arsenal.

President Moon said he himself is part of a separated family, and he noted that about 56-thousand South Koreans are still waiting to be reunited with their families in the North.

Earlier, Bolton told Netanyahu that the United States sees the "highest importance" in preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons and that's why Trump withdrew from the deal negotiated by the Obama administration and was reapplying stiff sanctions.

Trump said: "I like him and he likes me". Kim sensibly settled into a nuclear sweet spot where he has gone far enough to bolster his country's deterrence against foreign invasion (compensating for the relative weaknesses in North Korea's conventional forces), but not far enough to invite a USA attack. Reports also say that Chinese power plants are lighting up Pyongyang at night, North Korean restaurants in China are reopening and an estimated 215 companies are jointly run by Chinese and North Koreans. "But the rest who are still waiting, we don't know what's going to happen to them".

Trump worries that Mueller interview could be a 'perjury trap'
He added today in response to Trump's tweets that he doubts the president has "ANY IDEA what McGahn has told Mueller". The Times report cited a dozen unnamed current and former White House officials and "others briefed on the matter".

"What we want is not war in cyber space".

Raddatz asked Bolton if he had seen anything specifically related to China trying to meddle in US elections in the past, but Bolton said he couldn't answer.

Bolton would not address the Trump comments or say what the Palestinians could expect. "Many other things, but I think this is a good starting point".

Reunions between family members in the North and South have typically been hosted during times of relative calm between the two countries and are widely considered a step toward relaxing tensions between communist North Korea and USA ally South Korea. The Iran nuclear weapons program, the ballistic missile programs are right at the top of the list.

Netanyahu said he believes that Trump's decision to "leave the disastrous Iran deal was nothing less than a hinge of history". -South Korea military drills while gaining little in return.

There were also some South Korean family members of those who were taken to North Korea as prisoners of war or allegedly kidnapped by North Korean forces.
