US President Donald Trump and South Korea's Moon Jae-in are holding talks in Washington



US President Donald Trump and South Korea's Moon Jae-in are holding talks in Washington, amid uncertainty over a planned US-North Korea summit.

 
Last week the North said it might cancel if the US insisted on it giving up nuclear weapons unilaterally.


Mr Moon will try to calm US nerves to get talks back on track, observers say.


One of his officials said he would "likely tell President Trump what to expect and what not to expect from Kim", Yonhap news agency reports.


US Vice President Mike Pence told US media he hoped the summit would go ahead but he stressed that American policy had not changed.
The historic 12 June summit is due to take place in Singapore. It follows a summit between Mr Kim and Mr Moon in April.


North Korea is expected to dismantle a nuclear test site this week as a good will gesture but the demolition may be delayed by bad weather.
