WASHINGTON, June 30 (Yonhap) -- U.S. President Donald Trump said Friday the U.S. and South Korea are renegotiating the free trade deal with South Korea and are discussing many options with regard to North Korea.

"We had a great afternoon yesterday. We had a fantastic dinner at the White House, accomplished a lot having to do with our thoughts on North Korea and very much our thoughts on trade," Trump said at the start of his summit talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

"We are renegotiating a trade deal right now as we speak with the South Koreans and hopefully it will be an equitable deal, it will be a fair deal to both parties. It's been a rough deal for the United States, but I think that it will be much different and will be good for both parties," he said.

Trump said the two sides are also "in the process of discussing our, frankly, many options, we have many options with respect to North Korea."
