It is to be noted here that US President Donald Trump had met Kim in Singapore in June for the first-ever summit between the countries.
Moon had his own third summit with Kim last month in Pyongyang, which was partly meant to help salvage the stumbling negotiations between Pyongyang and Washington, after Trump called off Pompeo's planned visit to the North in late August citing lack of progress.
In order to achieve concrete progress in the coming months, the USA will need to work around these Chinese counter-interests-primarily by engaging with Pyongyang directly and establishing trust. "We'll continue to make significant progress and we are further along in making that progress than any administration in an awfully long time".
According to the South Korean statement, Pompeo said "he agreed with Chairman Kim to hold the second US-North Korea summit at the earliest date possible".
Trump later posted on Twitter that Pompeo "had a good meeting with Chairman Kim today in Pyongyang".
During a closed meeting with Moon, Pompeo said he and Kim agreed to arrange the second U.S.
"As President Trump said, there are many steps along the way, and we took one of them today". "We are not quite there yet".
The last trip to North Korea for the secretary of state, in July, did not go so well. DPRK is the acronym for the country's official name: Democratic People's Republic of Korea. Pompeo has said the U.S.is "making the progress we need". "North Korea summit as soon as possible", Yoon said in a statement.
"Secretary Pompeo said he and Chairman Kim concurred that they will hold the second U.S".

Chinese Wary as Putin Visits India for Arms Deal
The two sides are expected to hold talks on setting up a new payment mechanism independent of the USA controlled dollar trade. Doval had a 90-minute intense discussion with Secretary Mattis on the need for India to acquire the S-400 missile system.
"It's a very nice day that promises a good future for both countries", Kim said, speaking through an interpreter, as he sat down at the lunch table with Pompeo.
Pompeo responded: "We had a great, great visit this morning".
United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo (L) shakes hands with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at Abe's office in Tokyo on Saturday. Japan has been wary of the initiative, but South Korea has embraced it. This is his fourth visit to North Korea.
Pompeo, however, played down the differences. "We will bring up the issue of the abductees as well and then we will share with you how we hope to proceed when we are in Pyongyang tomorrow". "And so there'll be tactical places where we'll have debates and disagreements, that is a necessary component of getting to the best deliverable".
That idea has the support of some analysts who think the USA needs to contain the North Korea nuclear threat and defuse tensions overall.
Since the denuclearization effort got underway with a secret visit to the North by then-CIA chief Pompeo in April, there has been only limited progress, even since the June 12 Trump-Kim summit that many had hoped would jump-start the effort.
In a statement, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Kim had invited inspectors to visit the Punggye-ri nuclear test site to confirm it had been irreversibly dismantled. The steps they've taken so far - beginning to dismantle a key missile engine test site and blowing up the tunnels to a nuclear site - have been without worldwide inspectors present to verify, and could be reversed. The US says it will not remove sanctions against North Korea until a complete denuclearization of the peninsula.
Nauert also could not name who Pompeo would be meeting with in Beijing - just that "there's the expectation that he meets with someone who's his appropriate counterpart". However, no specific time or location has yet been agreed.
At last month's inter-Korean summit, the North expressed its willingness to close the Yongbyon nuclear complex if Washington takes corresponding action, which Moon said would include a declaration of an end to the 1950-53 Korean War.
