Trump says June 12th summit is on

Kim may see a meeting with Trump as necessary to easing pressure from crushing sanctions and to winning security assurances in a region surrounded by enemies

"During the South Korea-US summit, President Trump said the US is willing to clearly put an end to hostile relations (between the US and North Korea) and help (the North) achieve economic prosperity if North Korea conducts denuclearisation".

Moon said on Sunday: "Our journey to the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and a permanent peace agreement can not be stopped, and we have made a decision to cooperate closely".

South Korea's president says North Korean leader Kim Jong Un remains committed to holding a summit with President Donald Trump and to the "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

The Kim-Moon meeting followed a whirlwind 24 hours that saw Trump cancel the highly anticipated June 12 meeting before saying it's potentially back on.

Trump rattled the region on Thursday by cancelling his June 12 meeting with Kim, citing "open hostility" from Pyongyang.

Moon and Kim agreed at a surprise meeting on Saturday that the possible North Korea-U.S. summit must be held, Moon told a news conference in Seoul.

Mr. Moon said he held Saturday's impromptu meeting, the second summit between the two sides in a month, at Mr. Kim's request. There the North Korean leader described the Singapore summit as a landmark opportunity to end decades of confrontation.

Tensions were calmed after Kim extended an olive branch by offering to send a delegation to the Winter Olympics in South Korea, sparking a rapid detente that led to Trump agreeing to hold direct talks with Pyongyang.

"There are meetings going on as we speak", Trump said.

Analysts have said remarks by White House national security adviser John Bolton and Vice President Mike Pence urging a "Libya-style" coerced denuclearization of the North had amplified lingering concerns by Kim about his regime's safety.

In response, the North said Friday that it stays open to talks with the US anytime and in any format. "That hasn't changed", the USA leader said.

They agreed to have their top officials meet again on June 1.

"However, during the U.S".

South Korea was caught off guard by Trump's abrupt cancellation of his summit with Kim, with the US president citing hostility in recent North Korean comments.

Moon was accompanied to the meeting by Suh Hoon, the chief of South Korea's National Intelligence Service spy agency, while Kim was accompanied by Kim Yong Chol, a vice chairman of the central committee of the ruling Workers' Party and head of the United Front Department handling inter-Korean relations.
