Seoul's top security adviser Chung Eui-yong was reportedly due to hold a phone conversation with his USA counterpart John Bolton on Monday evening, Korea time.
Washington took an all-or-nothing approach or "big deal" approach toward North Korea's denuclearization when it began its negotiations previous year but gradually shifted to a phased, incremental approach, which is favored by Pyongyang, until the Hanoi summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Na Kyung-won, a veteran lawmaker and conservative, as well as one of the few women in South Korea's parliament, had said Moon was acting as if he was the chief spokesman for the North Korean dictator, Yonhap reported.
The North Korean leader's sibling, Kim Yo-jong, 30, has played an increasingly prominent role in state business over the past few years, including attending her brother's summit meetings with President Trump and other leaders. Many senior officials, such as North Korea's ceremonial head of state Kim Yong Nam, were re-elected.
In a new report, a panel of U.N. experts monitoring the implementation of the sanctions said the communist nation has continued illegal activities "enjoying ongoing access" to global financial firms and clandestine ship-to-ship transfers of petroleum products and coal.

However, Trump told reporters that like the Singapore summit, Kim had committed not conducting nuclear or ballistic missile tests. No official meeting between the countries has yet to be publicly scheduled.

Ken Gause, director of the International Affairs Group at the Center for Naval Analyses, said North Korea is most likely to turn to South Korea for concessions and look to resume inter-Korean projects, such as the Kaesong Industrial Complex and Mount Kumgang tourism, which South Korea has been planning to discuss with the USA prior to beginning preparatory work because of potential sanctions violations.

He said Mr Trump had proposed a "big deal" in the Hanoi summit under which North Korea would completely denuclearise and also give up its chemical and biological weapons. You were going to war, folks, whether you know it or not.
