S.Korea's Moon says three-way summit with N.Korea, U.S. possible

SEOUL, March 21 (Reuters) - South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Wednesday a three-way summit with North Korea and the United States is possible and that talks should aim for an end to the nuclear threat on the Korean peninsula.

Amid a flurry of diplomacy in Asia, Europe and the United States, Moon is planning a meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un next month. U.S. President Donald Trump has also said he would meet Kim by the end of May.

“A North Korea-U.S. summit would be a historic event in itself following an inter-Korean summit”, Moon said at a preparatory meeting at the presidential Blue House for the inter-Korean summit.

The series of summits should aim for a “complete end” to the nuclear and peace issues on the Korean peninsula, Moon said.
