Will the talks between the two leaders take place or not? There is still uncertainty surrounding the meeting
US President Donald Trump's cancellation of the planned summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reportedly caught South Korea's president by surprise, and he's called an emergency meeting at midnight, local time.
"It's moving along very nicely", Trump told reporters late Saturday when asked for an update.
In a tweet, Trump the summit was "likely" to happen as scheduled June 12.
It allowed Mr Moon to push for a US-North Korean summit that he sees as the best way to ease animosity that had some fearing a war past year.

Mr Moon told reporters on Sunday that Mr Kim "again made clear his commitment to a complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula", and told the South Korean leader that he is willing to cooperate to end confrontation and work toward peace for the sake of the successful North Korea-US summit.
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".
During his two-hour meeting with Mr Kim, Mr Moon said he urged both Washington and Pyongyang "to remove misunderstandings through direct communication and to have sufficient dialogue in advance through working-level negotiations on the agendas to be agreed upon at the summit". -North Korea summit on track, said he delivered Trump's "firm will" to end the hostile relationship with North Korea and pursue bilateral economic cooperation.
American officials are skeptical that Kim will ever fully abandon his nuclear arsenal, and Moon said North Korea is not yet convinced it can trust security guarantees from the United States. He placed enormous stock in the showy demolition at the Punggye-ri nuclear test site, an operation viewed by nuclear experts as a theatrical production with limited relevance to permanently ending North Korea's nuclear weapons program, if not a scurrilous exercise in destroying criminal evidence. They very much want to do it.
Moon says his meeting with Kim was arranged at Kim's request.
Mr Moon said military generals and Red Cross officials from the Koreas will also meet separately to discuss how to ease military tensions and resume reunions of families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War. Worldwide journalists were present, but the USA government can't verify the site's destruction. The US has banned its citizens from entering North Korea, which has a history of detaining US citizens. "That hasn't changed", the USA leader said.
The agency said the two leaders had reached a "satisfactory consensus" and expressed "their stand to make joint efforts for the decentralization of the Korean peninsula".
Ireland Eurovision entry one of two censored in China
TV host Graham Norton will be the commentator for BBC One's coverage of the final, which begins at 8pm on Saturday evening. Though no official date has been set, reports suggest the Eurovision Asia Song Contest could launch as early as October.
Trump announced Thursday that he would scrap plans for an unprecedented meeting with North Korea in response to what he called "tremendous anger and open hostility" by the other country.
Mr. Moon is the only South Korean leader to have met a North Korean leader twice, both times in the DMZ, which is a symbol of the unending hostilities between the nations after the Korean War ended in 1953 in a truce, not a peace treaty.
