The president added that he plans at some point to invite Kim to the United States.

"We're getting along very well".

The president tells reporters that there are three sites under consideration, but he's not identifying them.

Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping have agreed to suspend any new tariffs in the trade war between the world's two largest economies following their meeting during the G20 summit.

In that historic summit, Trump and Kim opened up dialogue on the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula after trading military threats for months.

The statement said Xi and Trump "agreed that great progress has been made with respect to North Korea".

"I think we're going to do one fairly (soon) - into January, February, I think", Trump said in remarks carried by the AFP news agency.

"The crisis is still continuing because of North Korea's development of nuclear, missile and weapons program and materials", Ban said.

The primary goal of discussions between the USA and North Korea remains the creation of "a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula", said a White House statement issued Saturday following Trump's meeting in Argentina with Chinese Present Xi Jinping.

The North Korean soldier who defected to the South across the heavily armed border on Saturday is in his late teens or early 20s. "We have a good relationship", Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One on his return from the G20 summit.

Despite the warming ties, it remains unclear whether the North's leader Kim Jong Un will make his first-ever visit to the South this year, as Seoul is hoping.

Former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has urged North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to take concrete steps toward complete denuclearization and gain the trust of the worldwide community if he wants sanctions lifted.

Last November, a North Korean soldier was critically wounded in a jointly controlled area after he fled to the South amid a hail of bullets fired by his former comrades.
