SEOUL - President of the Republic of Korea (ROk) Moon Jae-in and US President Donald Trump on Monday held a phone conversation ahead of the summit between the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and the United States.

Moon's spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom told a press briefing that Moon and Trump talked over the phone for about 40 minutes from 4:30 pm local time (0730 GMT).

Moon told Trump that the ROK leader and people would wholeheartedly pray for a successful DPRK-US summit.

Trump explained to Moon about what had been negotiated between Pyongyang and Washington until recently.

The two leaders made a detailed discussion on how to make the DPRK-US summit a success.

The summit is scheduled for 9:00 am Singapore time (0100 GMT) Tuesday at the Capella hotel on the resort island of Sentosa.

If Trump and Kim sit down face-to-face and frankly talk to find a common ground between the two sides, the two leaders could gain a big achievement, Moon and Trump agreed.

After the DPRK-US summit, Trump will send US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to the ROK and China to explain the result of the summit.

Trump said he would consult with Moon on ROK-US cooperation to concretely implement the outcome of the DPRK-US summit.
