Moon also told aides that U.S. President Donald Trump deserved the Nobel Peace Prize for helping to end the standoff with North Korea over its nuclear weapons programme, a South Korean official said.
Congratulated for an apparent breakthrough in relations between South Korea and North Korea, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said, "It's President Trump who should receive the Nobel Prize".
Kim could offer more disarmament concessions during his meeting with Trump, expected in May or June, but it's unclear what specific steps he would take.
Kim said the move to unify the time zone is "the first practical step for national reconciliation and unity", according to KCNA. Therefore, the NCCK welcomes the historical Declaration pronounced by the two Korean leaders at the Panmunjom Peace House on 27 April, and we show a great respect to the two leaders who eventually worked out the Declaration.
So in 1956, Nepal decided to peg its standard time at Mount Gaurishankar, a peak east of the capital Kathmandu, putting it 15 minutes ahead of India - a way to assert itself as a nation independent from its giant neighbour.
Abe is said to have "highly assessed", the two Korea's agreement to pursue a full denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, through their Panmunjom Declaration made Friday after Moon and Kim Jong Un's historic summit.
"We strongly support the agreement to ensure the participation of civilians in the reunification process as seen in the decision to establish a joint liaison office and to resume the reunion events of the separated families".
The village was also the site of discussions between North and South Korea as to whether North Korea would participate in the 2018 Winter Olympics. "What we need is only peace", Moon told a meeting of senior secretaries, according to a presidential Blue House official who briefed media.
"We had an extensive conversation on the hardest issues that face our two countries", Pompeo said. A week ago, Kim announced an end to all nuclear and long-range missile tests and the closing of the nuclear test site in mountainous Punggye-ri, in northeast North Korea. The South Korean military committed to removing loudspeakers that blare propaganda at the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) across the North Korean border. But it's not really because of the "maximum pressure" campaign.
"Still, it would not be desirable should the parliament's agreement become another source of political dispute", he said. If it goes badly-if the North Koreans say something like, "denuclearization will take eight years, cost the United States $20 billion, and will be overseen by China"-the Trump administration might easily conclude that Kim is not "honorable", but the "rocket man". Japan says at least several dozen of its nationals are being held in the country.
On Sunday, Moon also spoke with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe to relay Kim's willingness to open dialogue with Tokyo, which is threatened by the North's nuclear weapons and missile development.
Most time zones around the world are set on the hour, but some differ from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) by 30 or even 45 minutes - Myanmar's is half an hour behind its neighbour Thailand's, for example.
As a reciprocal gesture, South Korea has also promised to get rid of loudspeakers along the border which play propaganda hostile to the North. The problem is that we know so little about decisionmaking in North Korea, that we slide back toward looking at foreign influences.
A survey taken on Friday, the day North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met South Korean President Moon Jae-in, showed 64.7 percent believe the North will denuclearise and keep peace.
Republican and Democratic lawmakers credited Trump's strategy for Kim's readiness to negotiate.
