"North Korea made several promises and we hope that they would stick to those promises and if so the meeting will go on as planned", she told a regular briefing. "I know those are all questions that people are anxious to have answers to". A South Korean spokesman said, "I feel they're approaching this matter with caution and they need time to organize their stance".
The United States and South Korea have said they oppose ending their long military alliance in exchange for the North's denuclearization.
It added: "The two leaders welcomed the prospect of dialog between the United States and North Korea, and committed to maintain pressure and sanctions until North Korea takes tangible steps toward complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearisation".
The U.S. and many other nations are pushing for North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program. "Most recently in January, the North suddenly canceled the visit of an arts troupe to South Korea", Lee Taek-su, head of Realmeter said.
Korea meeting, but will keep up pressure
This summit may save the world from a nuclear disaster. "Let's be very clear", she said in a statement. Trump and Kim have agreed to meet by the end of May, although they have yet to confirm a date or time.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in, who some believe has maneuvered the two leaders to this position, called it an "historical milestone" that will put the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula "really on track".
"I think North Korea is going to go very well, I think we will have tremendous success".
Last week, Donald Trump decided, on a whim, to accept Kim Jong-un's invitation to come by for some "nuclear talks and chill".
He said Japan, South Korea and the United States should discuss details of their strategy ahead of the planned talks between the US and North Korea "in order to make the dialogue a meaningful one". Senior administration officials had to dissuade Trump from meeting Kim in April and convince him to wait until May, after the leaders of North and South Korea hold their own summit.

"We are all agreed that we are optimistic about this opportunity", McMaster told reporters after the closed-door meeting at the USA mission to the United Nations.
Four days after the surprise announcement that President Trump has agreed to meet the North's Kim Jong Un by May, Washington has yet to hear directly from Pyongyang on the invitation extended by Kim via South Korean intermediaries. Since the USA government is unable to provide emergency services to its citizens in North Korea, as there is no diplomatic or consular relations between the two countries, only Sweden acts as the protecting power for American citizens in the DPRK, providing limited services. The allies had agreed to delay the drills until after the Winter Paralympics end later this month.
"It is up to the parties involved to decide if, when and where the talks will be held", the ministry said in a statement.
