South Korean President Moon Jae-in and President Donald Trump spoke by phone on Sunday and exchanged views on making the upcoming U.S.-North Korea summit a success, the presidential office said.
The two leaders talked from 11:30 a.m. to 11:55 a.m. and agreed to closely work together on the historic meeting, Cheong Wa Dae said. Moon is scheduled to hold talks with the U.S. chief executive on Tuesday in Washington.
He will return home early Thursday after his two-day trip.
The Seoul-Washington meeting is scheduled three weeks before Trump is due to meet North Korean leader Kim Jong-il in Singapore.
The latter will be a first for the leaders of the two countries, which have maintained a confrontational stance toward each other since the1950-53 Korean War. (Yonhap)
