But on Monday, Mr Trump said of the "rocket man" days: "It was a different world".

South Korea wasn't at the table when military commanders from the US -led United Nations Command and the joint Chinese-North Korean forces signed the 1953 armistice that ended the Korean War.

He said the new trade agreement, which still needs approval by South Korea's parliament, was a sign of the strong partnership between the US and South Korea.

"I think our farmers are going to be extremely happy, it was very limited as to what they could do and what they could send and now it's a open market and they're going to be sending a lot more farm products".

But South Korean lawmakers, who must sign off on the deal, have warned they will not approve it if the United States imposes tariffs on Korean cars as part of Trump's threat to protect domestic carmakers from global imports.

"It was long time in coming and it is a basic redoing of the agreement that was done before, which was a very unfair agreement for the United States".

South Korean President Moon Jae-in isn't letting that happen again.

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

Efforts to resume economic cooperation are limited by US -led sanctions linked to the North's banned nuclear weapons program.

Trump is set to address the U.N. General Assembly Tuesday morning and will chair a meeting of the Security Council Wednesday on counter-proliferation. "I think within a fairly short period of time we'll be announcing where it'll be, the location to be determined but we're both very much looking forward to having it". El-Sissi said it's an obligation Trump has made clear.

He said it would be hard for the U.S.to object to the measures, calling it "clever maneuvering on Moon's part".

The president also signed a new United States-Korea Free Trade Agreement in a signing ceremony with Moon. Moon is expected to convey to Trump a personal message from Kim delivered at their inter-Korean talks last week.

President Trump attends a meeting on the global drug problem at the United Nations, with U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, a day ahead of the official opening of the 73rd United Nations General Assembly, on Monday, in New York City.

He will also defend the Trump administration's use of sanctions to force change, which has seen Chinese and Russian companies punished for doing business in North Korea. The penalties are a result of Trump's decision to withdraw the US from the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

While meeting with Moon, the North Korean leader offered to dismantle his country's missile engine test facility and missile launch pads in Dongchang-ri, known to be the testbed for long-range ballistic missiles capable of reaching the continental US.
