트럼프 "제재 풀려면 北이 뭔가해야…마지막 회담이라 생각안해"

U.S. President Donald Trump plans to hold more meetings with his North Korean counterpart... even after their Hanoi summit set for next week.
But when it comes to lifting sanctions... he is demanding Pyeongyang take "meaningful" steps.
Lee Ji-won has our top story.
U.S. President Donald Trump has again stressed that he and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un have a "very good relationship," but that sanctions will be in place until more is done.
"The sanctions are on in full. As you know, I haven't taken sanctions off. I'd love to be able to, but in order to do that, we have to do something that’s meaningful on the other side."
This comes as President Trump fielded questions from reporters at the White House prior to his bilateral talks with Austria's Chancellor on Wednesday.
And as if to further lure North Korea into taking that "meaningful" step, President Trump also reiterated the potential he sees in North Korea's economy.
While stressing that he'll be meeting with Kim Jong-un for two days this time, President Trump hinted on the likelihood of having more summits with Kim.
"But we've made a lot of progress. We've made a tremendous amount. That doesn't mean this is going to be the last meeting, because I don't believe it will. But we have subjects to discuss which will be very fruitful, I believe."
This comes in line with President Trump saying that he is in no rush over North Korea's denuclearization on Tuesday.
He said he doesn't have any pressing time schedule and that as long as there is no nuclear testing, he is in no hurry.
These remarks add to speculation that Trump is trying to lower expectations about the upcoming summit,... with no complete denuclearization deal reached this time as well.
Some observers suggest the meeting could first settle on a nuclear freeze for now.
