Jon, who spoke through Mr. Kim Chin Il, First Secretary of the Embassy, an interpreter, said although DPRK had established relationship with Nigeria, much could be done to deepen it.

The two presidents did not hold a joint press conference after the summit and opted for separate statements, probably because of differences over their approach to North Korea.

Moreover, the White House said, Moon and Trump affirmed the importance of continuing close coordination and cooperation on issues related to North Korea and discussed the "enduring strength" of the South Korea-U.S. alliance, "which remains the linchpin of peace and security on the Korean Peninsula and in the region".

The second summit between Trump and Kim over Pyongyang's denuclearization collapsed in late February.

US President Donald Trump (left) and South Korean Moon Jae-in meet on Thursday (local time) in Washington DC.

But Moon's plan to unveil details of such projects on March 1, right after the Hanoi summit, was scrapped and he is under pressure from opponents on the right.

According to analysts at NK News, a website that monitors North Korea, Mr Pak helped oversee a process of "radical reform" in the economy that helped it survive sanctions.

"There are many areas that we can still work together; it must not be limited to just economy and culture".

Noerpe added that there are good reasons for both Trump and Kim to offer Moon some movement, given the domestic challenges he faces. Moon is a proponent of a "good enough deal" that would agree to a small step in the denuclearization process, such as North Korea dismantling Yongbyon in exchange for the USA declaring the end of the Korean War or opening a liaison office in Pyongyang. 'The unravelling would have a serious impact on Moon, who has seen his poll numbers drop and fierce political schisms at home... so it is imperative that Washington [and Pyongyang] afford Moon victories soon to allow necessary political space'.

The two presidents' seventh meeting since Moon took office came a month and a half after the U.S.

"Kim Jong-un, North Korean leader" North Korean leader, has been re-elected as chairman of the State Affairs Commission, the communist state's highest decision-making body, reported Yonhap News Agency.

The 35-year-old Kim holds many government, military and ruling party leadership titles, but he technically rules the country in his capacity as commission chairman.

Mr Choe, born in 1950, was one of the most powerful officials in North Korea as head of the Workers' Party of Korea Organisation and Guidance Department, and had been director of cultural exchange programmes and vice-chairman at the Kim Il Sung Youth League in the 1980s, leading youth delegations on goodwill visits to China, Russia, Japan, Libya and Greece, according to database North Korea Leadership Watch.

While the media also referred to other high-level personnel changes in the SPA, there was no information on policy direction.

When asked if a three-way summit with Kim and Moon is also possible, Trump said "that could happen also".
