"North Korea has clearly expressed its intention for denuclearization on the Korean peninsula, and if there is no military threat, and North Korea's regime security is promised, they have clarified that there is no reason to hold nuclear weapons", Moon's office said.
This handout from the presidential Blue House taken on March 5, 2018 shows North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (R) shaking hands with South Korean chief delegator Chung Eui-yong (L), who travelled as envoys of the South's President Moon Jae-in, during their meeting in Pyongyang.
First and foremost, said Mr Chung, Mr Kim agreed "the denuclearisation issue may be discussed as an agenda for the North-US dialogue" - an understanding that marked a clear departure from North Korea's previous refusal to discuss the nuclear issue at all.
He also said Kim and liberal South Korean President Moon Jae-in will establish a "hotline" communication channel between them to lower military tensions, and would speak together before the planned summit.
Washington and Pyongyang have been at loggerheads for months over the North's nuclear and missile programs, with US President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un trading insults and threatening war. And achieving its nuclear aims rests on the North resuming tests of missiles and bombs that set the region on edge.
If Moon accepts Kim's invitation to visit Pyongyang it would be the third inter-Korean summit talk.
However, the state-run media did not mention the issue of denuclearization or dialogue between the United States and North Korea.
North Korea later sent athletes to the Olympics, as well as a high-ranking delegation that included Kim's sister, Kim Yo Jong.
"What Moon is trying to do is interpose himself between North Korea and the United States so that there is a kind of defusing role that the South Koreans play, naively or not, in trying to at least sort of forestall any ramping up of tensions", Graham said.

There is speculation that better inter-Korean ties could pave the way for Washington and Pyongyang to talk about the North's nuclear weapons.
North Korea has regularly vowed never to give up its nuclear programme, which it sees as an essential deterrent against U.S. plans for invasion. Hopes are high that the Koreas can extend the good feelings created by North Korea's participation in the Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
Later this week, the delegation is scheduled to travel to the U.S.to brief officials on the outcome of the North-South talks.
North Korea is willing to talk to the United States about giving up its nuclear weapons, South Korea said Tuesday, in a remarkable development that followed unprecedented talks in Pyongyang.
However, Seoul said no agreement had yet been reached on a meeting between Kim and Moon, which would be the first such summit since 2007.
However, analysts cautioned that North Korea has a history of using negotiations to buy time for its weapons program.
"President Moon is falling for Kim Jong-un's double talk", said a middle-aged man.
The agency did not provide details on what that agreement was but an official from the presidential Blue House in Seoul said it partially addressed the summit offer made by the North.
A US official said Trump was in fact, referring to a March 1 phone call to President Moon Jae-in of South Korea - which is a USA ally. However, none of the parties commented on how it responded to Kim Jong-UN.
