>> South Korea's new leader holding his first talks with Donald Trump on Wednesday. And there's no prize for guessing what they spent most of their time talking about. After a round of congratulations and an invite to Washington, it was all about the North Korean nuclear crisis. The two leaders agreed to closely cooperate in addressing the situation, though there's no doubt they have different views on how to handle it.
Moon is pushing for more engagement and dialogue with Pyongyang, which is working on a nuclear-tipped missile that could one day reach American shores. But in his words, Trump is all about maximum pressure and engagement. And US officials say they're concerned that Moon's stance could undercut efforts to pressure the North, with isolations and sanctions.
Another point of friction, Moon's called for a delay in starting up THAAD, the US missile system designed to shoot down possible North Korean rockets. He wants to put it up for parliamentary approval, even though his predecessor agreed to the installation last year. White House sources told Reuters they hope that's just been campaign blaster, and Moon will soften his sense on THAAD and North in general, as he settles into office
