South Korea's president personally relayed a message on Monday to U.S. President Donald Trump, telling him that North Korea's leader wants to meet him again soon to make progress on denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

President Trump signed a revised free-trade pact on Monday with South Korea, as he steps up efforts this week to show he can strike new market-opening deals and isn't antagonistic to trade.

"Since we got here, it's a different world", Trump said Monday.

Trump began his second visit to the United Nations with a brief meeting on the global drug trade before sitting down with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who delivered a personal message to Trump from Kim after their inter-Korean talks last week in Pyongyang.

He said that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo - whose last planned visit to Pyongyang was abruptly scuttled by the White House - would arrange the summit "in the immediate future".

Kim and Trump met in Singapore on June 12, marking the first-ever US-North Korea summit in history.

In January, Mr Trump used his preferred communication medium of Twitter to taunt Mr Kim, writing that his own "nuclear button" was "much bigger and more powerful". Trump has a robust schedule during his stay in NY, including meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and British Prime Minister Theresa May.

Bolton said the United States was seeking to ramp up pressure on Iran but not to overthrow the regime - an idea he supported before taking his job and reiterated recently by former NY mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is Trump's personal lawyer.

At last year's address to the United Nations.

"Workers in South Korea and America will find new customers and new opportunities to expand and grow", Trump said.

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.

No decision had yet been taken as to the venue, he said.

"It looks like we´ll have a second summit quite soon", Trump told reporters at the United Nations.

The mood though is sharply changed from that at last year's UN General Assembly, when Trump threatened to "totally destroy" North Korea and mocked the North Korean leader as "Rocket Man" on a "suicide mission".

"That was a risky time". On Monday he is also set to participate in a Global Call to Action on the World Drug Problem and then, in addition to Moon, meet with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and French President Emmanuel Macron.

Along with President Moon, other world leaders are starting to arrive in New York City for the UN General Assembly.

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

The US president will speak to the General Assembly on Tuesday and will chair the Security Council for the first time on Wednesday.

Rouhani, appearing on NBC on Monday, cited the threat of more US sanctions in stating, "There is no such program for a meeting".
