Addressing a meeting with the country's top religious leaders, Moon said he hoped that great progress would be made in denuclearization and the normalization in relations between Pyongyang and Washington at the second DPRK-U.S. summit, according to the presidential Blue House.
Top DPRK leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump are scheduled to meet again in Hanoi, Vietnam From Feb. 27 to 28 after their first-ever summit in Singapore in June last year.
During the Singapore summit, Kim and Trump agreed to the Korean Peninsula's complete denuclearization and setting up of new bilateral relations while making joint efforts to build a lasting peace regime on the peninsula.
Regarding inter-Korean relations, Moon said great progress had been made in less than one year since the first summit between the current leaders of the two Koreas was held in April last year, expecting further progress to be made.
Regarding possible options for resuming inter-Korean economic cooperation, Moon said the suspended tour to the DPRK's scenic resort of Mount Kumgang could be resumed as the first inter-Korean cooperation project in the post-sanctions era.
The tour by South Koreans to the Mount Kumgang resort has been halted since 2008 when a South Korean female tourist was shot dead by a DPRK soldier after allegedly venturing into off-limit areas.
