WASHINGTON (AP) - A top U.S. national security official says President Donald Trump will work to build business ties between the U.S. and other nations during the United Nations General Assembly next week.

National Security Adviser H. R. McMaster tells reporters the president will stress his “ironclad commitment to free, fair and reciprocal trade” as the “bedrock” of his economic talks.

Also on the agenda: the Iran nuclear deal, Mideast peace, and U.N. reform efforts.
