The brazen killing of Kim Jong Nam with a toxic nerve agent at Kuala Lumpur's international airport in broad daylight shocked the world

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Monday that he will actively push for another meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to help resume dialogue between Pyongyang and Washington.

Moon urged his officials to begin preparations for a new summit, which would be the fourth meeting between the two leaders of North and South Korea in the past year.

But despite Moon's positive take on the speech, Friday's also saw Kim openly denounce the South Korean government for acting as a "meddlesome "mediator" and "facilitator" as they busy themselves with foreign trips".

President Moon Jae-in, center, moves into a reception room in the Blue House along with military leaders who attended a ceremony where they were promoted to higher ranks on Monday.

Moon, who visited Washington to meet Trump last week, said Kim's latest address "set the stage" for a fourth inter-Korean summit, which could be a "stepping stone for an even bigger opportunity and a more significant outcome". Kim held three summits a year ago with Moon, who lobbied hard to revive the nuclear talks between the United States and North Korea.

North Korea's state media on Saturday issued a commentary criticizing South Korea's purchase of fighter jets, including two recently delivered F-35A jets from the United States, calling it a "serious provocative act" that could intensify tension on the Korean peninsula.

"I have high regard for Chairman Kim's unwavering commitment". While praising Kim for his intentions to continue dialogue, Moon officially announced his plans to pursue another inter-Korean summit to revive the U.S.

The breakdown of the Trump-Kim meeting in Hanoi raised doubts about Moon's claim that Kim could be persuaded to deal away his nukes for economic and security benefits and also about Seoul's role as a diplomatic catalyst, which became less crucial once Washington and Pyongyang established direct talks.

Kim criticized Moon in his policy speech on Friday, calling him an "overstepping mediator" and demanding that he take the North's side and advance inter-Korean projects that have been limited by US -led sanctions.

Huong's lead counsel Hisyam Teh Poh Teik said at that time that she would be released by the first week of May, with the two years already served counting from her arrest on Feb 15, 2017, and the remaining one-third granted remission.

"We will wait for a bold decision from the USA, with patience till the end of this year", Kim said. South Korea: Why has the peninsula been divided? At the time, National Intelligence Service Chief Suh Hoon also visited the North.
