Trump: 'no rush' for North Korea's denuclearization

With just a week away to his meeting in Hanoi, President Trump has a new mantra for North Korea: No testing?

No rush.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP CONTINUING: "If there's testing, that's another deal." North Korea's put its nuclear and missile testing on ice - at least publicly - since 2017.

Speaking to reporters at the White House on Tuesday (February 19) the president said sanctions on Pyongyang will stay put but that he had no pressing time schedule for the country's denuclearization.

It's a different approach from the Singapore summit, where the President went in with high expectations for quick results.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, IN AN EXCHANGE WITH REPORTERS, SAYING: "Well, I just like to see, ultimately, denuclearization of North Korea.

I think we will see that ultimately." As Trump downplays expectations for this summit, it clashes with a message from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo just last week - who urged Kim Jong Un to make a move fast.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE MIKE POMPEO SAYING: "He's told us he will.

And now it's time to deliver." On Wednesday (February 13), Pompeo emphasized that the U.S. aimed to get 'as far down the road' as it can ahead of the summit - though overall, the Trump administration has moved away from demands that the North give up its weapons immediately.

Experts say its adopted a more gradual, reciprocal approach - the kind that Pyongyang has insisted on all along.

Earlier this month, U.S. special representative Stephen Biegun spent three days in North Korea, in a trip he said was aimed at agreeing on 'concrete deliverables' ahead of the summit.

He's hinted at compromise before too.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) U.S. SPECIAL REPRESENTATIVE FOR NORTH KOREA STEPHEN BIEGUN, SAYING: "Nothing in today's circumstances necessarily guarantees that we will be successful.

However, today we differ in terms of both situation, and approach from the past" Biegun now heads to Hanoi to make the final preparations for the big meeting.
