President Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in discussed a second U.S.-North Korea denuclearization summit Friday during a meeting in Argentina.

Conferring on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires, the two leaders “reaffirmed their commitment to achieve the final, verified denuclearization of” North Korea, the White House said.

“The two leaders agreed on the importance of maintaining vigorous enforcement of existing sanctions to ensure [North Korea] understands that denuclearization is the only path to economic prosperity and lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula,” the White House statement said.

They reiterated that they would “closely coordinate” on the next steps.

Mr. Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un first met in June in Singapore, with Mr. Kim pledging to denuclearize. Talks have stalled since then, although Mr. Trump said he expects to hold a second summit sometime early next year at a location yet to be announced.
