Moon to visit New York for talks with Trump, U.N. General Assembly

남북정상회담 이후 문 대통령 유엔총회 준비 박차, 트럼프와 한미정상회담 예정

The Blue House announced this afternoon that President Moon will fly out to New York on Sunday to attend the UN General Assembly and hold a number of bilateral summits on the sidelines.
Our Blue House correspondent Hwang Hojun reports.
First, he briefed the South Korean people, immediately after his return from North Korea.
And now, President Moon Jae-in will have a chance to address a global audience on the results of his three-day summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

“President Moon Jae-in will embark on a 3-night, 5-day trip to New York from September 23rd to the 27th to attend the 73rd UN General Assembly.”

According to Nam, President Moon will arrive in New York on Sunday late afternoon, local time.
On Monday morning, he will attend an event to raise awareness of the global drug abuse issue, co-sponsored by 28 countries.
He is scheduled to hold a bilateral summit with U.S. President Donald Trump, which is when they are expected to sign their countries’ revised Free Trade Agreement.
Soon after, a separate meeting is scheduled with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, which will mark their fourth encounter since President Moon took office.
On Tuesday, President Moon will give a policy speech to about 250 U.S. experts and opinion leaders from thinktanks including the Council on Foreign Relations, the Korea Society, and the Asia Society, where he is expected to discuss the strides that have been made in inter-Korean relations over the past year,… and his vision for future steps that South Korea and the U.S. can take together to achieve irreversible peace on the Peninsula.
President Moon will deliver a keynote speech at the UN General Assembly, once again, on Wednesday afternoon; he will likely return back to Seoul on Thursday night Korea time.
While this will be the second time President Moon has appeared at the international forum since his inauguration, his presence in New York this time will likely draw a lot more international attention since the 2018 Inter-Korean Summit Pyeongyang is still fresh in people’s minds.

The spotlight will especially be on President Moon’s bilateral meeting with President Trump, where he’ll brief his U.S. counterpart on the results of the summit, and quite possibly relay a personal message from North Korean leader Kim Jong-un regarding the quote ‘corresponding measures’ mentioned in the Pyeongyang Joint Declaration.
Separate one-on-one meetings with other government leaders will also likely take place.
