South Korean competitors welcomed the prospect.

"There are sanctions, and if you want to do something, like delivering or selling products or goods that are subject to these sanctions, you need to go for an exemption of these sanctions", the source said.

While a second summit between Trump and North Korean leader Kim has been mooted, nothing has been announced.
