Moon, Kim hold second summit in Panmunjom
Moon will release the result of the summit at 10:00 a.m. local time on Sunday, the Blue House said, without elaborating further.
DPRK's First Vice Foreign Minister Kim Kye Gwan responded then that his country is ready to sit down with the United States anytime in any manner for talks to solve the problems existing between them.
According to the Blue House, at a National Security Council (NSC) meeting held on Friday, the NSC members shared a view that efforts to improve inter-Korean relations will contribute to enhance relations between Pyongyang and Washington and complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
SEOUL, May 26 (Xinhua) -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in and top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong Un held their second summit in Panmunjom Saturday afternoon.
China said Friday that it hoped the DPRK and the U.S. would cherish the recent progress and continue to address mutual concerns via dialogue and push for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
Trump on Thursday sent a letter to the DPRK leader, saying that their originally planned meeting in Singapore on June 12 will not happen.

South Korean presidential office said the two leaders met at the DPRK side of the border village of Panmunjom from local time 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Saturday.
The two leaders exchanged their opinions on implementing the April 27 Panmunjom Declaration, and on how to have a successful DPRK-U.S. summit, according to the Blue House.
Their second summit came after U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday that the United States will possibly reinstate the meeting with Kim.
The South Korean government also said Friday that Seoul planned to continue diplomatic efforts to maintain a dialogue momentum between the DPRK and the United States.
Moon and Kim met on the South Korean side of Panmunjom on April 27, agreeing to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and the change of the current armistice agreement into a peace treaty.
