Chung said Moon is hoping for a "continued active role by China" in engaging North Korea and invited Xi to Seoul. -North Korea summit, Xi welcomed the US president's decision to meet with Kim and urged both sides to "start engagement and dialogue as quickly as possible and strive to obtain positive results".

"There are real difficulties ahead for these talks including whether this is just a diversion by North Korea, whether Trump will prove to be able to understand all the issues, and if any agreement will truly de-nuclearize the Koreas", Blaney, who served on the State Department Policy Planning Staff (PPS) in the 1970s under Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger and Cyrus Vance, said.

Tillerson says nothing has been agreed about the location for the meeting.

"It's very early stages".

"Places like Switzerland, Sweden or Jeju Island have been gaining a lot of attention (as possible venues for the meeting), but we also view the JSA as a serious option", an official from the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae told reporters.

South Korea's national security adviser announced Thursday night at the White House that Trump had agreed to meet with Kim Jong Un by May in an effort to see North Korea abandon its nuclear ambitions. "Through those talks, we need to get the North to take concrete action". The same officials then carried to Washington a verbal message of Kim's willingness to meet Trump, which he is said to have immediately accepted.

Mr Pompeo and Mr Mnuchin said the U.S. would make no concessions and would keep the pressure on North Korea by maintaining economic sanctions and a strong U.S. defense posture before the meeting. That's beyond the North's promise not to resume nuclear testing and missile flights or publicly criticize U.S.

The South Korean leader might offer to reopen the Kaesong industrial center, which was closed after a North Korean nuclear test in 2016.

Choi Kang, vice president of the Asan Institute for Policy Studies, floated the possibility of Sydney Seiler, a former USA special envoy for the six-party talks.

During the meeting with the ambassadors, McMaster pointed to three United Nations sanctions resolutions adopted by the council as key in the campaign to bring North Korea to the negotiating table, according to a council diplomat.

"But we are determined to keep up the campaign of maximum pressure until we see words match with deeds, and real progress toward denuclearisation".

South Korea's National Security Office chief, Chung Eui-yong, who led the delegation, will head to Russian Federation on Tuesday after meeting Chinese President Xi Jinping on Monday, the Blue House said.

In Beijing, Mr Xi told Mr Chung that the Korean peninsula faces an opportunity for talks to ease the situation.

China was the host and convener of the Six-Party Talks, a 2003-2007 process that saw North Korean representatives sit down with delegates from the United States and four other countries to discuss ending the North's nuclear program in exchange for incentives.
