The South Korean daily Hankyoreh reported that Moon was angry about press reports claiming discord between the us and South Korea.
Former UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Monday to take concrete steps toward complete denuclearisation and gain the trust of the global community if he wants sanctions lifted.
President Trump is "very friendly" towards Kim Jong-un and wants to make his wishes come true in return for denuclearisation, President Moon of South Korea said on his return from the G20 summit.
Moon made the comment when asked by reporters during a state visit to New Zealand about the likely timing of a possible trip to Seoul by Kim, who held summits with Moon and US President Donald Trump this year.
"I think we're going to do one fairly (soon) - into January, February, I think", Trump said during a press session aboard Air Force One.
Instead, the second Trump-Kim meeting will be where a "verifiable plan" to disclose the sites and weapons must be reached, Pence said.
Asked if the meeting would take place in the U.S., Trump said that it may happen at "some point", although diplomats are now looking at three other locations for the next summit.
The two leaders signed a vaguely worded document on denuclearisation of the peninsula, but progress since has stalled as Washington and Pyongyang spar over the meaning of the document.
"Whether it's this year or not isn't that important, what's important is that the North Korea leader's visit to South Korea will definitely accelerate the denuclearisation process in the Korean peninsula". Also, working on his North Korea diplomacy, the president met with the leaders of the Netherlands and South Afirca.
North and South Korea have begun to remove landmines and destroy some military bunkers along their common border as part of the detente.
Differences also remain between Washington and Seoul on how to proceed with Mr Kim, as the dovish Mr Moon favours more robust engagement with the North.
While the announcement establishes a window for a summit between Trump and Kim, it now appears that the two leaders are more likely to meet toward the later end of early 2019.
Three sites are being considered, he added.
Ban said he hopes their second summit will occur at a time when the global community feels confident about North Korea's commitment to denuclearisation.
