"As soon as there is full clarity on the date and place of the meeting, we will inform you", he added.

"If the USA adopts a correct posture and comes forward for the third DPRK-U".

The speech marked Kim's first public comments on the diplomatic process with Washington since his second summit meeting with U.S. President Donald J. Trump at the end of February ended without agreement.

The North Korean leader left the door open for continued diplomacy with the United States and a possible third summit but only "if the US adopts a correct posture". "But U.S. -style dialogue of unilaterally pushing its demands doesn't fit us, and we have no interest in it".

The two Koreas have separately agreed to a series of economic initiatives and goodwill gestures, including plans to modernize the North's railways, but those efforts are unable to move forward without US agreement on lifting related sanctions. -North Korea nuclear negotiations. Some 28,500 USA troops are stationed in the South.

Ivanka Trump says she passed on World Bank job
Ms Trump was eventually involved in selecting the new World Bank president, United States economist David Malpass . Ivanka Trump is welcomed by singing and clapping at an Ivory Coast cocoa farm, Wednesday, April 17.

Washington wanted the North to dismantle its missiles and chemical and biological weapons (in addition to nuclear weapons) programs before granting concessions, while Pyongyang called for the lifting of much of the sanctions in exchange for dismantling its Yongbyon nuclear facility, which the U.S. considered insufficient. Moon's opening remarks made no mention of a special envoy.

North Korea in recent weeks has been registering displeasure with Seoul, withdrawing its entire staff from a front-line liaison office with South Korea before sending some of them back, and refusing to show up for a previously planned joint search for war remains at the countries' border.

North Korean charge d'affaires in Moscow, Jin Jong Hyuk, said Thursday that Pyongyang expects a number of mutual visits by high-level Russian and North Korean delegations in the future.

However, those efforts have largely stalled since the collapse of the Hanoi summit. After the meeting with Moon, Trump said that "smaller deals" could happen "step by step" between the north and the USA, though his country and South Korea were focusing on "the big deal".

Lü said that the key to building enough mutual trust between the two to make a third summit possible largely lies in whether the USA will send signals that show sufficient sincerity, including seriously considering a phased denuclearization approach, as opposed to its complete, verifiable and irreversible dismantlement policy, and partially lifting its unilateral economic sanctions imposed on North Korea. North Korea has also displayed its intention to continue dialogue.
