North Korea said it is committed to a “complete denuclearisation” of the Korean peninsula.
Moon made a keynote speech at a lunch with chief executives of Korean media companies and said the North was expressing a will for a complete denuclearlisation.
He said the North has not attached any conditions that the U.S. cannot accept, such as the withdrawal of American troops from South Korea.
North Korea has defended its nuclear and missile programmes, which it pursues in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions, as a necessary deterrent against perceived U.S. hostility.
The United States stations 28,500 troops in South Korea, a legacy of the 1950-53 Korean War.
