'(Trump) wishes Chairman Kim would implement the rest of their agreement and that he would make what Chairman Kim wants come true, ' Moon said Saturday.

"President Trump asked me to forward to (Kim) these messages; he has a very friendly view of Chairman Kim Jong Un and likes him".

At the most recent summit between Moon and Kim in September, the two leaders committed to reviving economic cooperation when possible, voicing optimism that worldwide sanctions could end and allow such activity. "We have a good relationship with Kim".

North Korea was angered by Washington's refusal to ease sanctions and warned it could resume its nuclear programme.

Speaking to reporters aboard his plane en route to New Zealand, Moon said, "Although we can not be certain, the issue is up to Chairman Kim".

Moon has facilitated a series of high-level talks between the US and North Korea, including a summit between Trump and Kim in June, and has met Kim three times this year. He said, "We are getting along very well".

According to reports citing unnamed goverment sources, President Moon Jae-in may raise the issue with US President Donald Trump during their meeting in Buenos Aires, on the sidelines of the G20 Summit.

Trump and Kim held a historic summit in Singapore earlier this year, signing a vaguely worded deal on denuclearisation. Subsequent nuclear diplomacy hasn't made headway since the U.S.

The White House said in a statement on Saturday following Trump's meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping that the USA and North Korea would strive "to see a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula".

In the Argentine capital, Mr Trump held separate bilateral talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Saturday that primarily focused on trade, but the USA leader said Xi he had agreed to work with him "100 per cent" on North Korea. Pence told NBC News the United States would not require Pyongyang to provide a complete list of nuclear weapons and locations before the second summit, but that the meeting must produce a concrete plan.

Trump's spokesperson Sarah Sanders said both the countries has "reaffirmed their commitment to achieve the final, fully verified denuclearization" of the North Korea.
