No full clarity on date, place of Putin’s meeting with Kim Jong

The commemoration came a few days after Kim Jong Un, grandson of Kim Il Sung, was re-elected at the nation's top legislature as supreme leader and expressed eagerness to hold a third summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in his policy speech at the parliament.

A Blue House official, who asked not to be named, said President Moon will share with his senior aides, the outcome of his summit with President Trump last well as the details of possibly sending a special South Korean envoy to the North.

"The South should not act as an "overstepping mediator" or a "facilitator" and should rather get its mind straight as a member of the (Korean) nation and boldly speak up for the interest of the nation", Kim said.

Also, it appears that South Korean President Moon Jae-in has just departed Washington, having failed in his attempt to convince U.S. President Donald Trump to compromise on key sanctions that would have allowed Moon to reengage with Pyong-yang.

The remarks run counter to Seoul's plan to "facilitate" nuclear negotiations through inter-Korean dialogue and "bolster the virtuous cycle of improvement in inter-Korean relations and progress in denuclearization" laid out in the annual Work Plan of the Ministry of Unification (MOU).

"I have high regard for Chairman Kim's unwavering commitment and very much welcome that", he continued, stressing the two are agreed on the need to "move toward the future together by thoroughly implementing the Panmunjom Declaration and Pyongyang Joint Declarations of September". After the Hanoi summit, Moon vowed to help resume dialogue between the two countries.

Korean Peninsula denuclearization is a matter closely related to China's border security, he said.

According to the Yonhap news agency, citing sources familiar with the matter, a meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un could take place in the Russia's Far East on 24 April.

"We agreed that the top-down method based on will and trust among the leaders of the two Koreas and the United States are crucial in the peace process for the Korean Peninsula", Moon said.

But his role as middle man has been called into question as Trump and Kim have established what they both insist remains a "good relationship" and talks falter over nuclear issues that the South Korean president can do little to influence.

"We will wait for a bold decision from the USA, with patience till the end of this year", Kim said. "Chances are fairly high that a summit between Russian Federation and North Korea could take place around that time", the source said.
