President Trump addresses UN General Assembly in NYC

Adjust Comment Print

On Tuesday, Mr Trump praised Mr Kim for halting nuclear and missile tests, releasing Americans held prisoner and returning some remains of United States soldiers killed in the 1950s Korean War.

In the year since he made his United Nations debut, Trump has cut funding to the world organization, withdrawn from the Paris Climate Agreement and the Iran nuclear deal, and quit United Nations bodies, including the Human Rights Council.

A year after calling North Korean leader Kim Jong-un "little rocket man" from the United Nations podium, Trump thanked Kim for working with the return American hostages and the remains of soldiers killed in the Korean conflict. "We only ask that you honor our sovereignty in return".

"Additional sanctions will resume November 5th and more will follow, and we are working with countries that import Iranian crude oil to cut their purchases substantially", Mr Trump said.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that in private messages from Kim Jong Un to President Donald Trump, the North Korean dictator has been "very consistent" that he's "intent on denuclearizing" the Korean Peninsula.

Although the president's approach to North Korea has softened in the past year, his attitude toward Iran has not.

The US president claimed that Iran's leaders do not respect their neighbors and many countries support the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.

Experts warned of the possibility of war as Senate Democrats prepared to introduce legislation aimed at stopping the Trump administration from attacking Iran on Wednesday, following a belligerent speech by National Security Adviser John Bolton at a meeting of anti-Iran groups.

Trump urged worldwide pressure against Iran, after he annoyed European allies by withdrawing from an agreement on curbing Tehran's nuclear programme, and lashed out at the Opec cartel over oil prices and China over the imbalance in trade.

"Didn't expect that reaction, but that's OK", Trump responded, prompting the loudest response yet from the crowd.

Some in the audience also grumbled during Trump's remarks when he said "we reject the ideology" of globalism. "And we embrace the doctrine of patriotism".

He described the relocation of the USA embassy to Jerusalem as 'a historic step'.

"Ultimately, the only long-term solution to the migration crisis is to help people build more hopeful futures in their home countries", Trump said.

Besides re-imposing the anti-Iran sanctions it had lifted under the accord, the Trump administration has also been seeking to put even more economic pressure on the Islamic Republic by threatening the European firms doing business with Tehran with punitive measures.
