South Korean president met North Korea's Kim Jong Un Saturday: Seoul

A United States delegation traveled to North Korea on Sunday for preparatory talks ahead of a potential meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, three senior USA officials with knowledge of the situation tell CNN.

Kim also said he was committed to meeting Trump, according to Moon.

Moon said both he and Kim had "agreed the June 12 North Korea-U.S. summit must be successfully held".

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

During Saturday's inter-Korean summit, the Korean leaders agreed to "positively cooperate with each other as ever to improve (North Korea)-US relations and establish (a) mechanism for permanent and durable peace".

The meeting came hours after South Korea expressed relief over revived talks for a summit between Trump and Kim following a whirlwind 24 hours that saw the US president cancel the meeting. "We're looking at June 12 in Singapore".

"We're doing very well in terms of the summit with North Korea", Trump said Saturday at the White House. "It's moving along very nicely", he said. So we're looking at June 12th in Singapore.

A White House team will leave as scheduled for Singapore this weekend to prepare for the possible summit, a White House spokeswoman said on Saturday. But he repeatedly refused to answer questions on the specifics of how North Korea would relinquish its nuclear weapons or if they would allow global experts to inspect nuclear facilities.

"We hope very much that dialogue will be revitalized, renewed, because without that we can't hope for any kind of significant progress in solving this extraordinarily important issue", Putin said. The move ends months of diplomatic advances that had been heralded by Trump as the likely precursor to a historic peace deal and the denuclearization of North Korea.

Marco Rubio talks about bipartisan legislation to create "red flag" gun law during a news conference at the U.S. Capitol, March 22, 2018, in Washington, D.C.

The group included US Ambassador to the Philippines, Sung Kim, and is a clear sign the summit is back on track. "I urge North Korea and the U.S.to confirm each other's will by sharing their problems with each other and communicating directly".

A senior US official says the North Koreans stood up an American delegation last week seeking to make arrangements for the summit and did not return messages from the USA seeking to discuss the meeting.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the official said Seoul's intelligence chief Suh Hoon and his North Korean counterpart, Kim Yong-chol have been in close communication since the April 27th summit. At that meeting, they declared they would work toward a nuclear-free Korean peninsula and a formal end to the 1950-53 Korean War.

"Kim stressed again that he had a firm determination towards complete denuclearisation", Moon told reporters on Sunday.

Moon said the results of Saturday's summit had been communicated to the United States.
