WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he expects to meet with North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un some time early next year and that an expected meeting between U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and officials from the reclusive Asian nation will be rescheduled.

“We’re very happy how it’s going with North Korea. We think it’s going fine. We’re in no rush,” he said at a press conference. “The sanctions are on. ... I’d love to take the sanctions off, but they (North Korea) have to be responsive, too.”
