Al Jazeera reported Saturday that the North Korean delegation, now attending the 2018 Winter Olympics being hosted by their southern neighbor, delivered the invitation letter to Moon "at a landmark high-level meeting at the presidential palace in Seoul".
Saturday's meeting, the most significant diplomatic encounter between the two sides in more than a decade, could now be surpassed should Moon accept Kim's invitation to visit Pyongyang later this year.
However, challenges loom large as the allies may clash over the approaches to achieving the goal of denuclearisation, analysts said, as Moon may face a tough choice between going along with Trump's "maximum pressure" campaign and engaging with the North to ease cross-border tensions after the Olympics.
The last summit between leaders of the two Koreas occurred in 2007 when South Korean President Roh Moo Hyun and Kim Jong-il met in Pyongyang, North Korea's capital.
Moon has been pushing both North Korean officials and a US-delegation, led by Vice President Mike Pence, during their visit to his country, to sit down for diplomatic talks at the earliest opportunity.
The invitation, delivered by Kim's visiting sister Kim Yo Jong, said Kim was willing to meet the South's leader "at the earliest date possible", said a spokesman for the presidential Blue House.
Moon is expected to study the North's call for a bilateral summit, while monitoring whether Pyongyang will move to have dialogue with the United States as requested by his government. At a reception Friday, Moon pointed to the joint Korean women's ice hockey team - an Olympic first - as a starting point.
The Prime Minister said Inter-Korean dialogues should continue after the Olympics.

Mattis said it's "too early to say" whether the situation will continue to remain cool after the Olympics. The visit included an invitation for South Korean President Moon Jae-in to travel to Pyongyang for talks.

Wary that the North is trying to drive a wedge between Washington and Seoul, he made a point of having no part of any of the North's brand of for-Koreans-by-Koreans detente.
Yong-nam is the President of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly of North Korea.
Moon has invited Kim and other senior North Korean officials to a luncheon at Seoul's presidential palace on Saturday.
Any meeting would represent a diplomatic coup for Moon, who swept to power previous year on a policy of engaging more with the reclusive North and has pushed for a diplomatic solution to the standoff over North Korea's nuclear and missile programme.
"I think it is different from the last 20 years", Pence said, according to the Post.
Yoon Young-seok, an opposition party member of parliament and chairman of the foreign affairs and unification committee, said he is skeptical of the initiative because it doesn't contain a specific plan toward getting North Korea to abandon its nuclear program.
