The Blue House spokesperson said the two leaders touched upon the progress that has been made so far, and discussed the ways in which their efforts will bear fruit in Tuesday's meeting.
Both Moon and Trump agreed that through frank talks with Kim, they'll be able to find common interests and ultimately reach a goal the entire world wants -- a Korean Peninsula free of nuclear weapons.
Trump also pledged to send his secretary of state Mike Pompeo to Seoul after the Singapore summit to discuss further details and ways that Seoul and Washington can work together.

And according to a high-level official, Moon and Trump also discussed the process of declaring an end to the Korean War, but there were no details officially released about that.
