South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Tuesday also released a statement on the DPRK-U.S. summit, describing the joint statement as "a historic event that has helped break down the last remaining Cold War legacy on earth".

"We would like to seek an understanding of this between Japan, the US and South Korea", Japan's defence minister, Itsunori Onodera, said.
