S.Korea leader presses Trump, Kim for breakthrough in nuke talks

South Korea's Moon says North Korea-U.S. talks 'on track',...

"No one can be optimistic about the results, but my cautious outlook is that the negotiations would be able to succeed if the North carries out a complete denuclearisation, and the global community gathers efforts to provide security guarantees to the North", Moon said.

Moon's state visit to Singapore was the first by a South Korean leader in 15 years.

Moon was later quoted by South Korea's Yonhap News Agency as saying there was a "better chance than ever" that North Korea would push forward with denuclearization, citing the fact that the North has invited journalists into the country and dismantled one of their nuclear sites.

Moon has more to lose than most if U.S. -Korea talks break down.

"Building on complete denuclearization and peace on the Korean peninsula, South Korea will draw up a new economic map", Moon said.

Matters between the two countries were further complicated on Thursday, when North Korean officials did not turn up to a meeting at the demilitarized zone at the border where US military figures had been expecting to discuss the repatriation of troop remains from the Korean War.

Moon visited India shortly after his triumph in opening up ties with North Korea through a successful summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Panmunjom.

"The normalization of inter-Korean relations will eventually normalize North Korea-U.S. relations and, then, North Korea-Japan relations", the ROK President said. But North Korea contradicted his account, accusing the US of employing "gangster-like" tactics by demanding unilateral denuclearization at the talks in Pyongyang.

Mr. Pompeo said the talks with Pyongyang last week had resulted in progress.

During his lecture, Moon said South Korea and ASEAN can advance each others' needs and interests, as ASEAN is not only a trading partner and investment destination for South Korea, but also a partner to create "a community of peace".

Turning to Korea's neighbours, Mr Moon said that the normalisation of inter-Korea relations will eventually normalise North Korea's relations with the U.S. and then with Japan.

Singapore is a lucrative construction market for South Korean companies, second only to the Middle East. -North Korea nuclear negotiations.

Mr Moon cited several Asean efforts so far which have kept North Korea in the fold of the worldwide community. A breakdown in talks risks a resumption of hostile rhetoric between Washington and Pyongyang and would fuel worries about North Korea's weapons of mass destruction, which include biochemical arms. Beijing had taken umbrage at the deployment of the American THAAD anti-missile system and had retaliated with restricting imports from South Korea. "But coming up with a specific plan that leads to denuclearization will not be smooth, and will take time", he said.
