SEOUL, South Korea-South Korea's president says US President Donald J. Trump told him he has a "very friendly view" of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and wants to grant his wishes if he denuclearizes. Moon spoke to reporters on Saturday aboard his presidential plane en route to New Zealand from Argentina, where he met Trump on the sidelines of a Group of 20 Nations summit.
Mr Moon said that he would carry a warm message from Mr Trump to Mr Kim, who may visit Seoul as early as this month.
After deriding Kim past year as "little rocket man" and threatening his country with "fire and fury", Trump has bestowed Kim with praise.
"We share a commitment to maintaining peace, prosperity and stability in our region", Ardern said.
Moon has also facilitated a series of high-level talks between the United States and North Korea, including a summit between Trump and Kim in June. -North Korea summit and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's visit to South Korea.
President Moon Jae-in is calling on South Korea and Japan to cleverly handle their uncomfortable history, ... and secure future-oriented relations that are not affected by what happened in the past.
He said such a visit would "accelerate the denuclearisation in the Korean peninsula" and result in a "greater stride in relations improvement" between the North and the United States.
Trade is also likely to feature, following New Zealand and South Korea signing a free trade agreement in 2015.
"This will be the first time that the North Korean leader will visit Seoul since Korea was divided into two countries", he said. Both countries are non-permanent members of the UN Security Council, and the Netherlands also sits on the North Korea Sanctions committee.
After sharply raising tensions with nuclear and missile tests past year, Kim abruptly reached out to Moon and Trump with a vague nuclear disarmament pledge. -North Korea summit will be in January or February, and that "three sites are under consideration".
Moon's programme in Auckland includes a ceremony of welcome and a state lunch hosted by Governor-General Dame Patsy Reddy at Government House, a wreath laying ceremony and tour of Auckland War Memorial Museum, and an engagement with the Korean community in Auckland.
