The six nations were working to implement a framework deal they reached in September 2005 under which Pyongyang was to give up its nuclear programme in return for massive economic and energy aid and an end to its diplomatic isolation.
"What can not be overlooked is that Moon did not directly demand North Korea to abandon its nuclear development, Moon should be aware that he has to urge denuclearisation to North Korea by himself, not depending on dialogue between the USA and North Korea", an editorial in the Yomiuri Newspaper read.
Earlier in the day, Moon hosted a meeting with North Korea's high-level delegation to the Olympic Games at the presidential palace in Seoul.
During previous attempts at ending the crisis the United States and its allies have provided financial incentives to North Korea or agreed to suspend military exercises with South Korea. Instead, they said, Kim simply wasn't seated in the area where Pence was receiving well-wishers.
Vice President Mike Pence is facing backlash for his staunch efforts to ignore North Korean officials at the Winter Olympic Games, even as the two Koreas continued their temporary truce, marching and competing as one team.
As for sharing Moon's box with the North Koreans, the officials said they knew in advance who was going to be in Moon's box to watch the opening ceremony.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in said South Korea is viewing hosting the Olympics as a way to improve diplomatic relations with North Korea.

As the opening ceremony began, she and South Korean President Moon Jae-in exchanged a historic handshake and spoke briefly.

Also the first in the history was the visit of a member of the DPRK leader's family to South Korea. The two sides held frequent ministerial-level talks for a few years after the summit.
The spokesman said Moon and the high-ranking DPRK delegation made a broad range of discussions on inter-Korean relations and issues on the Korean Peninsula "under a friendly atmosphere".
In an Instagram post, Morffi said , "In their eyes I'm not the right kind of Catholic for my choice in partner". The school informed parents of their decision in a letter but did not cite a reason for letting Morffi go.
Athletes from the two countries marched side by side during the opening ceremony and have formed a joint women's hockey team. In short, the winter Olympics at Pyeongchang is fast turning into a metaphorical wedge to split an uneasy alliance.
In the longer term, Kim appears to hope that he can convince the global community that it can co-exist with a nuclear North Korea. They then posed for a team photo with the players sitting or kneeling on the ice and the dignitaries behind them on the bench.
