The South Korean leader also has diplomatic reasons to keep Trump aligned with his goals for peace on the peninsula: Moon told his Cabinet he'd like to see South Korea "actively operate the trilateral channel for dialogue between the North and the U.S.", signaling Seoul will continue to play a mediating role as Pyongyang and Washington make their way toward their bilateral summit. His widow, in a congratulatory message sent on Monday, told Mr Moon she hoped he could also win the prize, set to be announced in October. It will begin removing the speakers on Tuesday. Pyongyang also plans to shift its time zone 30 minutes earlier to align with South Korea.
The two Koreas had been engaged in Cold War-era psychological warfare since the North's fourth nuclear test in early 2016.
For example, he said his country is willing to give up its nuclear weapons if the U.S. pledges not to attack.
This picture taken on April 27, 2018 and released from North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on April 29, 2018 shows North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un (L) and South Korea's President Moon Jae-in (R) participating in a tree-planting ceremony next to the Military Demarcation Line that forms the border between the two Koreas at the truce village of Panmunjom. The most enduring effort negotiated by the Bill Clinton administration in 1994 halted the North's production of plutonium for nearly a decade.
In recent months, Trump has gone from engaging in a war of words with Kim to planning to hold a summit with the dictator - a meeting that is expected to take place within weeks.
"Maybe a lot of things change, but Kim Jong Un. has been very open and very straightforward so far", Trump said". Some experts say Kim may announce scraping North Korea's long-range missile program, which has posed a direct threat to the United States. This is - the North Korean propaganda playbook is an infinitely rich resource. "We're going to look for actions and deeds".
Friday's summit, where Kim and Moon were seen on live TV smiling and even hugging, gave many South Koreans their first extended chance to see Kim in person, and many were struck by a self-deprecating and witty side they had never seen. In March, he travelled to Beijing and met with Chinese President Xi Jinping. South Korean President Moon Jae-in got involved this year, helping bring America and North Korea together.
Mr Pompeo said at Mr Trump's direction, he spoke with Mr Kim about the release of three US citizens detained by North Korea.
Jay hopeful that now after more than 60 years, what's known as "the forgotten war", may soon be coming to an official end.
