It looks like Trump didn't tell anyone before he chose to pull out of the summit. "That hasn't changed. So, we'll see what happens".

So with the summit in Singapore possibly back on, President Moon pledged to call or meet with his North Korean counterpart whenever necessary.

"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. Moon said he told Kim that Trump has a "firm resolve" to end hostile relations with North Korea and initiate economic co-operation if Kim implements "complete denuclearization".

From the peak in 2013, the state's population has dropped 0.4 percent, while the rest of the nation grew by 3.0 percent. Nationally, eight of the 15 cities with the largest gains were in the South, and three of the top five were in Texas.

"I stressed that the two leaders need to settle misunderstandings through direct communication and have sufficient communication through working-level talks on the agenda to be agreed on at the summit", Moon said, adding that Kim agreed.

"What Kim is unclear about is that he has concerns about whether his country can surely trust the United States over its promise to end hostile relations (with North Korea) and provide a security guarantee if they do denuclearization", Moon said. He placed enormous stock in the showy demolition at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site, an operation viewed by nuclear experts as a theatrical production with limited relevance to permanently ending North Korea's nuclear weapons program, if not a scurrilous exercise in destroying criminal evidence.

The prime minister said he plans to hold talks with Trump over the telephone soon after returning to Japan. It allowed Moon to push for a U.S. At that meeting, they declared they would work toward a nuclear-free Korean peninsula and a formal end to the 1950-53 Korean War. "I urge North Korea and the confirm each other's will by sharing their problems with each other and communicating directly". "That hasn't changed", the USA leader said.

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

Mr. Moon is the only South Korean leader to have met a North Korean leader twice, both times in the DMZ, which is a symbol of the unending hostilities between the nations after the Korean War ended in 1953 in a truce, not a peace treaty.
