Before reporters were ushered from the room, Pompeo focused instead on what the two sides agreed on: the importance of denuclearizing of North Korea.

"I don't have much to add", Mr Pompeo replied.

"Chairman Kim said he's ready to allow them to come in", Pompeo said, adding that inspectors will be allowed in as soon as the U.S. and North Korea agree on "logistics".

Pompeo said he and Kim had gotten "pretty close" to fixing the logistics for the summit but stressed that "sometimes that last inch is hard to close".

"As President Trump said, there are many steps along the way and we took one of them today", Pompeo told Moon in Seoul, in remarks that offered only a broad assessment of his talks with Kim.

He earlier said "significant progress" was made during his visit toward an agreement for North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons.

During Mr Pompeo's last visit to Pyongyang in July, he was denounced for making "gangster-like demands".

In exchange, the United States would declare a formal end to the 1950-53 Korean War - which concluded with an armistice rather than a peace treaty - but North Korea would stop short of delivering an exhaustive list of its nuclear facilities, she said. Kim's regime has said it wants to focus on more than just its nuclear program, and that it expects the U.S.to show some flexibility with its demands.

The greenback also shot to its highest so far this year on the yen and an all-time high against the Indian rupee. He said: "You can not wish away the depreciation in the rupee if you are a current account deficit country".

Before visiting Pyongyang, Pompeo held talks in Tokyo with Japan's prime minister.

The dovish Moon, who held three summits with Kim this year and also brokered the Trump-Kim summit in Singapore, said Sunday the "whole world" was watching with keen interest the outcomes of Pompeo's trip.

Trump also called off a meeting with Pompeo in August, due to a lag in the negotiations.

"Most importantly, both the leaders believe there is real progress that can be made, substantive progress that can be made at the next summit and so we are going to get it at a time that works for each of the two leaders and at a place that works for both of them", he said. "After having a nice meeting we can enjoy a meal together", Kim told Pompeo as they walked down a hallway toward a guesthouse dining room.

"Yeah, so we had a great, great visit this morning", Pompeo replied.

Kim Song Hye, who had accompanied top North Korean official Kim Yong Chol on his June White House visit, described Trump as "generous" and "a leader" during staff-level discussions in Pyongyang.

Mr Pompeo described his fourth trip to the North Korean capital as "another step forward to denuclearisation".

"I know that during your visit, you also want to exchange views with the Chinese side on regional hotspot issues including the situation in the Korean Peninsula", Wang said, adding that this demonstrates as two major powers and permanent members of the UN Security Council, China and the United States should strengthen communication and cooperation, so as to live up to the responsibilities entrusted by the global community.
