(LEAD) South Korea vows to faithfully implement summit agreement with NK

"We are having very productive talks about reinstating the Summit which, if it does happen, will likely remain in Singapore on the same date, Jun 12, and, if necessary, will be extended beyond that date", Trump said in a Twitter post. He said there is a "lot of good will" and denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula would be "a great thing".

"South Korea summit, President Trump clearly emphasised that we may see not only the end of hostile relations but also economic cooperation if North Korea denuclearises", Mr. Moon said.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Friday expressed his support for U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to cancel the planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un scheduled for June 12 in Singapore.

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

Moon said the Saturday's summit - just the fourth-ever inter-Korean leaders' meeting - had been requested by Kim. Korea summit an opportunity to make substantial progress on North Korea's nuclear, missile and abduction issues. They very much want to do it.

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 U.S. mainland.

Analysts have said remarks by White House national security adviser John Bolton and Vice President Mike Pence urging a "Libya-style" coerced denuclearization of the North had amplified lingering concerns by Kim about his regime's safety.

Moon said military generals and Red Cross officials from the Koreas will also meet separately to discuss how to ease military tensions and resume reunions of families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War.

The KCNA statement said Kim and Moon agreed to hold high-level talks between their two nations on June 1, and to take steps to quickly implement their efforts to denuclearize the peninsula.

The official says the North also reneged on a pledge to allow worldwide inspectors to monitor the supposed demolition of its nuclear test site Thursday.

"However, during the U.S".

Their talks at the Panmunjom border village, which South Korean officials said lasted two hours, came after their April 27 meeting, the first inter-Korean summit in more than a decade that was also held at the same venue. DPRK is the acronym for the North's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Europe, China and India must engage the Koreas and keep the temperature, already lowered by a meeting between the leaders of South and North Korea, down.
