South Korea is reviewing ways to address North Korea's security concerns, including converting the current armistice into a peace agreement, a senior Moon administration official said on Sunday. The President has publicly discarded those worries and sent signals he is intent on carrying out the talks he himself canceled only four days ago. Since taking power past year, Moon has sought to facilitate dialogue between Trump and Kim to avoid the possibility of a devastating military conflict on the Korean Peninsula.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in may possibly be joining the two leaders at the summit.
After some back-and-forth, June 12 in Singapore was fixed on, but as May ticked over both sides began casting doubt on the meeting. Those meetings are expected to continue into Tuesday.
While both President Trump and Kim have expressed their desire to hold a bilateral summit, the two nations have remained at odds over the key issue of denuclearisation.
"It's fantastic. I feel great being in Singapore", said Howard X.

The Brazil global is linked with a move to United, with champions Manchester City having nearly landed the 25-year-old in January. Brazilian midfielder Fred looks to be on his way to Manchester United for a fee believed to be around £50million.
North Korea defends its nuclear and missile programs as a deterrent against perceived aggression by the United States, which keeps 28,500 troops in South Korea, a legacy of the 1950-53 Korean War, which ended in a truce, not a peace treaty.
The U.S. team was being led by former United States Special Representative for North Korea Policy Sung Kim, the Post reported, while the DPRK team was led by Vice Foreign-Minister Choe Son Hui.
American officials are skeptical that Kim will ever fully abandon his nuclear arsenal.
Following an unusually provocative 2017 in which Kim's engineers tested a purported thermonuclear warhead and three long-range missiles theoretically capable of striking mainland United States cities, the North Korean leader has engaged in a flurry of diplomatic activity in recent months. Analysts said the pressure from the top makes a meeting more likely.
Despite Kim's apparent eagerness for a summit with Trump, there are lingering doubts about whether he will fully relinquish his nuclear weapons, which he may see as his only guarantee of survival.

The Royal Navy of Oman will also be sending a number of its ships to the governorate in order to transport the needed supplies. The airport, closed since Thursday, will reopen early Sunday, Oman's Public Authority for Civil Aviation said.
A White House statement said that in their call, Trump and Abe "affirmed the shared imperative of achieving the complete and permanent dismantlement of North Korea's nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons and ballistic missile programs".
"Let's be realistic. These summits take months not weeks to prepare", he said. A similar, painstaking process yielded the Iran nuclear deal which Trump derided and withdrew from last month. I think people want to see if we can get the meeting and get something done. "And we'll be here satirizing the whole situation", said Howard. "They are going to be best friends right after this meeting".
At the same time, a "pre-advance" team was travelling to Singapore to meet with North Koreans, the White House said. He then suggested a day later that the meeting was still possibly in the cards.
Experts say that after those working-level talks, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo could meet with Kim Yong-chol, a vice central committee chairman of the North's ruling Workers' Party, for final preparations.
Chief among his concerns, according to U.S. officials familiar with the discussions, are Kim's security needs in Singapore, including the number of bodyguards he'll be allowed to bring to the meeting with Trump.
