Moon will not travel to Singapore during DPRK-U.S. summit: ROK official

ROK President visit before summit success is guaranteed would be presumptuous, official says

The South Korean President will not visit Singapore during a planned DPRK-U.S. summit, a senior official at the Presidential office said a briefing held in Singapore on Monday, amid reports that the three sides could use the historic meeting to declare an end to the Korean War.

The senior official at the Blue House — who wished to remain anonymous — said that doing so would suggest that a summit agreement between Pyongyang and Washington was a done deal.
