"We're doing very well in terms of the summit with North Korea", Trumpsaid at the White House. "We're looking at June 12 in Singapore".
Moon said on Sunday: "Our journey to the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and a permanent peace agreement can not be stopped, and we have chose to cooperate closely".
South Korean President Moon Jae-in said North Korean leader remains committed to denuclearization and an end to the Korean War after a surprise meeting between the two leaders Saturday.
U.S. President Donald Trump said on Saturday he was still looking at a June 12 summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, adding that talks were progressing very well.
Moon, who brokered the summit between Washington and Pyongyang, likely used Saturday's meeting to confirm Kim's willingness to enter nuclear negotiations with Trump and clarify what steps Kim has in mind in the process of denuclearization, said Hong Min, a senior analyst at Seoul's Korea Institute for National Unification.
Kim, in a telling line from a dispatch issued by the North's state-run news service earlier Sunday, "expressed his fixed will on the historic (North Korea)-U.S. summit talks".
Moon said he held Saturday's impromptu summit - the second summit between the two sides in a month - after Kim asked for a meeting "without any formality".
Despite the cancellation of the summit, the North Korean government responded with some restraint, saying: "The first meeting would not solve all, but solving even one at a time in a phased way would make the relations get better rather than making them get worse". He said he expects the talks to go smoothly because Pyongyang and Washington both know what they want from each other.
Trump signalled that preparations for the summit with Mr. Kim were going ahead.
Analysts have said remarks by White House national security adviser John Bolton and Vice President Mike Pence urging a "Libya-style" coerced denuclearization of the North had amplified lingering concerns by Kim about his regime's safety. It allowed Moon to push for a U.S.
In response, the North said Friday that it stays open to talks with the USA anytime and in any format.
They agreed to have their top officials meet again on June 1. KCNA said the leaders also agreed to meet frequently.
South Korea was caught off guard by Trump's abrupt cancellation of his summit with Kim, with the USA president citing hostility in recent North Korean comments.
Kim and Moon held a landmark summit at Panmunjom that saw the two agree in late April to work to remove all nuclear weapons from the Korean Peninsula and, within the year, pursue talks with the United States to declare an official end to the Korean conflict, which ended in an armistice.
