SHOW TRANSCRIPT

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said the Olympics have helped ease tensions on the Korean Peninsula. But it's probably still too early to host a summit with its northern neighbor.

Kim Yo Jong, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's sister, invited Moon to Pyongyang for talks with her brother.

When asked by reporters on Saturday whether he would hold a summit, Moon suggested he didn't want to rush it.

Moon said he hopes the current state of affairs between North Korea and South Korea will lead to better relations on the peninsula. He also said he hopes it will lead to a dialogue between the U.S. and North Korea.
