"Our position on gradual and consistent implementation of the joint declaration reached at talks between the leaders of North Korea and the United States by building trust between the two countries remains unchanged," Kim Hyung Jun said at an event marking the 70th anniversary of Russian-North Korean diplomatic relations.
"They agreed to instruct working level groups led by [US Special Representative for North Korea] Steve Biegun… to start intensified discussions on some of those four pillars that were laid out in the Singapore summit," Nauert told reporters.
Upon the conclusion of the first US-North Korea summit on June 12 in Singapore, President Donald Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un agree to establish bilateral relations in accordance with the desires of both nations, join efforts to built lasting peace, work toward complete denuclearization, and commit to recovering POW/MIA remains.
The spokeswoman said the officials discussed plans for a second bilateral summit, but added that the preparations for it would take time. Nauert explained that the logistics for such a meeting of this magnitude are not easy, because the two sides should agree on the place, time, schedules of both leaders and participation of the media.
