"The relationship of deep-rooted hostility and the North Korean nuclear issue cannot be resolved in one single action through a meeting between leaders", said a statement by Moon, who predicted a "long process that could take one year, two years or even longer" to resolve disputes with Kim's regime.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that American college student Otto Warmbier "did not die in vain" because the fallout from his case spurred U.S.

"I think that without Otto this would not have happened".
