Chung and Suh Hoon, the director of South Korea's National Intelligence Service, traveled last week to Pyongyang to lay groundwork for the third meeting between Kim and South's President Moon Jae-in.
Just two weeks ago, Trump called off a planned trip by Pompeo to North Korea.
But Moon faces tougher challenges heading into his third meeting with Kim with the stalemate in nuclear negotiations between Pyongyang and Washington raising fundamental questions about Kim's supposed willingness to abandon his nuclear weapons.
Thursday, Chung told reporters about his talks with Kim.
"Chairman Kim Jong-un reiterated his firm commitment to the complete denuclearization of the peninsula, and expressed his intent to maintain close inter-Korean cooperation, and with the US", Chung said.
Kim also continues using the term "complete denuclearization" to suggest he expects American nuclear forces to be withdrawn from striking range of North Korea-a tall order given the very long range of USA nuclear forces.
Another professor, Kim Joon-hyung of Handong University, found it significant that Kim did not link his Korean War peace treaty proposal to the removal of USA troops from the Korean peninsula.
Oliver Hotham, managing editor of NK News managing editor and present at the hotel, tweeted that Mr Depardieu had "refused to allow photos and one of his dudes said "you'll have a bad time" if I persisted in trying to get a quote from him". The meeting later this month, Chung said, will "discuss practical ways to establish lasting peace and ensure joint prosperity on the Korean Peninsula, especially denuclearize the Korean Peninsula", Yonhap News Agency reported.More news: Kim Kardashian Meets Donald Trump On Prison Reform, Freeing Another Prisoner

-South Korean alliance or lead to the withdrawal of the 28,500 USA troops stationed in South Korea to prevent North Korean attack, according to Chung.
"Chairman Kim asked us to convey the message to the United States that the USA (should) help create situations where he would feel his decision to denuclearise was a right move", Chung said.
Though there was no substantive progress in reducing North Korea's nuclear stockpile, North Korea has not appeared to test any missiles or nuclear weapons since the summit.
North Korea said the request to circulate the document to the 193 United Nations member states "shows full determination of North and South Korea to keep advancing the North-South ties without deviation" and to demonstrate that they "have entered definitely the new orbit of peace, the orbit of reconciliation and co-operation".
This is the first time the North Korean leader laid out a potential deadline for dismantling nuclear weapons, the development of which pushed the region to the brink of military confrontation past year.
"Postponing a visit by Xi to Pyongyang is a prudent decision by the Chinese, given both the current political climate around negotiations on trade and with North Korea and Xi's busy schedule this week", Sun wrote in a recent article, noting that since July, the U.S.
"But the work of convincing Chairman Kim to make this strategic shift that we've talked about for a brighter future for the people of North Korea continues", Pompeo said. The sign read: "Peace on the Korea Peninsula".
He was expected to brief his American counterpart, National Security Adviser John Bolton, at 8 p.m. Seoul time, Moon's office said.
