He saw denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula as the objective of a dialogue between the USA and North Korea, of which the summit between the two leaders would be the beginning.

"He. expressed his intention to put an end to the history of war and confrontation through the success of the North-US summit and to cooperate for peace and prosperity", Moon told reporters in Seoul on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Trump spoke to reporters about the potential summit from the Oval Office on Saturday night, where he had gathered with lawmakers to celebrate the return of Utah man Joshua Holt, who had been jailed in Venezuela for almost two years and finally freed.

On Friday, Trump indicated the summit could be salvaged after welcoming a conciliatory statement from North Korea saying it remained open to talks.

One day after the cancellation, Trump told reporters that he may still meet with Kim as previously scheduled on June 12 in Singapore.

Last year, Trump and Kim were trading war threats and insults after Pyongyang tested its most powerful nuclear weapon to date and missiles it said were capable of reaching the USA mainland. He said there is a "lot of good will" and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula would be "a great thing".

Trump added: "We'll see what happens".

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

"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.

"It's moving along very nicely", Trump said at the White House during a meeting with a USA prisoner freed by Venezuela.

"The White House pre-advance team for Singapore will leave as scheduled in order to prepare should the summit take place", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said.

Donald Trump has said negotiations over a potential summit with the leader of North Korea are "going along very well".

The Koreas' talks, which Moon said Kim requested, capped a whirlwind 24 hours of diplomatic back-and-forth. At that meeting, they declared they would work toward a nuclear-free Korean peninsula and a formal end to the 1950-53 Korean War.

"The thing he was uncertain about was not denuclearisation but concerns on whether he could trust that the U.S. would end its hostile policy and guarantee the security of his regime when the North denuclearises itself".

"However, during the U.S". KCNA said the leaders also agreed to meet frequently.

A senior South Korean official later said that the two Koreas are discussing a possible non-aggression pledge and the start of peace treaty talks as a way of addressing Pyongyang's security concerns ahead of U.S.

Video and a photo released by South Korea's presidential Blue House on Saturday showed Kim hugging Moon and kissing him on the cheek three times as he saw Moon off after their meeting at Tongilgak, the North's building in the truce village, which lies in the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) - the 2.5-mile (4 km) wide buffer that runs along the heavily armed military border.
