Trump to grant Kim's wishes after denuclearisation: S. Korea President

North Korea has sought security guarantees from the USA and relief from worldwide sanctions.

"We share a commitment to maintaining peace, prosperity and stability in our region", Ardern said.

Moon made the comment when asked by reporters during a state visit to New Zealand about the likely timing of a possible trip to Seoul by Kim, who held summits with Moon and US President Donald Trump this year.

US President Donald Trump and South Korean President Moon Jae-in say tensions have eased significantly since then, but Ban, who is in Tokyo for a World Bank event, said the crisis is not over and that North Korea should fully disclose its nuclear weapons inventory to a trusted worldwide organisation such as the global Atomic Energy Agency.

The president - who was returning from the G-20 summit in Argentina - told reporters aboard Air Force One that a second summit may happen in "January or February".

"This will be the first time that a North Korean leader will visit South Korea so, although there is no time frame set for that, still that's very meaningful", Moon said.

Tackling climate change could save millions of lives, report says
The only holdout was the United States, which announced under President Donald Trump that it is withdrawing from the climate pact. At the COP24 climate talks, nations must agree to a rulebook palatable to all 183 states who have ratified the Paris deal.

Asked if the meeting would take place in the U.S., Trump said that it may happen at "some point", although diplomats are now looking at three other locations for the next summit. After their third meeting in Pyongyang, North Korea's capital, in September, Moon said Kim agreed to make a reciprocal visit to Seoul this year.

Speaking in Buenos Aires, where he discussed the situation on the Korean Peninsula with Mr Moon, Mr Trump said he hoped to organise a follow-up meeting with Mr Kim for early next year.

However, Washington is taking a more cautious approach towards Pyongyang amid sparring over interpretation of a vaguely worded denuclearisation document signed at the Singapore summit. Subsequent nuclear diplomacy hasn't made headway since the US-North Korea summit in June.

North and South Korea have begun to remove landmines and destroy military bunkers along parts of their common border amid efforts to improve long-strained ties.

Differences also remain between Washington and Seoul on how to proceed with Mr Kim, as the dovish Mr Moon favours more robust engagement with the North.

"I think it will be absolutely imperative in this next summit that we come away with a plan for identifying all of the weapons in question, identifying all the development sites, allowing for inspections of the sites and the plan for dismantling nuclear weapons", Pence said.
