North, South Korean Leaders Vow To Meet ‘Frequently’

North, South Korean Leaders Vow To Meet ‘Frequently’

A previously planned trip by White House aides to Singapore this weekend to work on logistics for the trip remained on schedule, said two White House officials.

South Korea says it feels relieved about the revived talks for a summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un over the future of Kim's nuclear weapons program.

Moon has played a key role in arranging the proposed meeting between Trump and Kim, and he expressed relief after the US president suggested the June 12 summit - which he canceled in a letter to Kim on Thursday - could be back on.

After years of tension over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program, Kim and Trump agreed this month to hold what would be the first meeting between a serving U.S. president and a North Korean leader.

The meeting was the latest dramatic turn in a week of diplomatic ups and downs surrounding the prospects for an unprecedented summit between the USA and North Korea, and the strongest sign yet that the two Korean leaders are trying to keep the on-again off-again meeting on track.

Moon's role as a facilitator for the Kim-Trump summit meeting was thrown into doubt when Trump abruptly announced on Thursday that he was abandoning his plan to meet Kim, citing "tremendous anger and open hostility" from North Korea. The story also quotes an anonymous source claiming that it's now too late to hold the summit on June 12 as planned. A senior Blue House official played down concerns of cracks between Seoul and Washington that arose after Trump announced his personal letter to Kim on Thursday, cancelling the summit, which completely blind-sided Seoul.

The two-hour meeting was held in the Demilitarized Zone that separates the two countries.

On Friday, the Trump administration sent mixed signals about its next steps on North Korea.

Saturday's meeting at the DMZ follows a daylong summit last month in which Moon and Kim embraced, planted a tree and talked alone for more than 30 minutes.

On Saturday, President Moon Jae In and Chairman Kim Jong Un met to discuss carrying out peace agreements and resuming talks with the U.S.

A White House team is traveling to Singapore to prep for the June 12 meeting between Kim and Trump.

"Should the North Korea-U.S. summit succeed, I would like to see efforts to formally end the (Korean) war through a three-way summit of the South, the North and the U.S.", he said.

"They very much want to do it; we'd like to do it", he said.

Experts believe that economic pressure brought about by the sanctions has encouraged Kim Jong-un to seek talks. This comes after President Trump made a decision to scrap the summit, claiming North Korea was recently acting with anger and open hostility.

Kim has launched a diplomatic offensive since the beginning of the year, meeting not only with Moon but also Chinese President Xi Jinping in Beijing.

"We express our willingness to sit down face-to-face with the USA and resolve issues anytime and in any format", North Korea's vice foreign minister Kim Kye-gwan said in a statement.
