WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on the summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (all times local):

1:30 a.m.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in says South Koreans strongly support the outcome of the summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and that bad reviews of the meeting were from people "isolated" from public thinking.

South Korea's presidential spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom described Moon's comments from the president's meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday.

Pompeo said while in Seoul that Trump's tweet about North Korea no longer posing a nuclear threat was made "with eyes wide open."

Kim says Moon and Pompeo also agreed that Washington, Seoul and Pyongyang could collaborate on recovering the remains of soldiers missing and presumed dead from the 1950-53 Korean War.
