On Wednesday, President Moon clarified his statement with another release: "US Forces Korea (USFK) is a matter of the South Korea-US alliance".

There's a "strong possibility" the meeting will be held at the venue in Panmunjom, and some events could even be scheduled on the northern side of the border, CNN reported, citing a source with knowledge of North Korea's plans.

The result is that this third generation, now moving into the ranks of power in North Korea, has a greater understanding and interaction with the West compared to their parents, who came of age at the height of the Cold War.

The F-22 "Raptor" stealth fighters last came to the South in December when Seoul and Washington staged their largest-ever joint air exercise, days after North Korea test-fired a missile believed to be capable of hitting the U.S. mainland.

The development comes as Trump is preparing for a historic summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, following months of tense saber-rattling over the North's nuclear and missile programs.

North Korea has reportedly transferred three American prisoners out of labor camps into a hotel, ahead of the planned summit between Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump.

The Blue House has warned the adviser "not to cause any more confusion" with such comments, presidential spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said.

During a telephone call with U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Tuesday, Moon said he wants the U.N.to observe the closure of the Punggy-ri test site.

While Trump seemingly dismissed more neutral locations like Singapore, Switzerland, or Mongolia, to meet with Kim, his nod to the DMZ on Monday seemed to indicate his preference for the spot based on its history. Yoon quoted Kim as saying.

On whether Moon and Trump had talked about a declaration to end war on the Korean Peninsula, during their 75-minute phone call, the senior official said the issue hadn't been discussed but that the USA president had first mentioned "ending war".

President Trump confirmed last week that his administration was in high-level talks with North Korea to secure the release of the Americans. "We are working to see USA citizens who are detained in North Korea come home as soon as possible", she said.

The Koreas used the same time zone for decades before the North in 2015 created its own "Pyongyang Time" by setting the clock 30 minutes behind South Korea and Japan.

The meeting between the Korean leader on April 27 saw a marked change in Kim Jong-un who held discussions on denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula with his South Korean counterpart, thus easing military tensions.
