But North Korea has not received what it wants most from its summitry: relief from punitive sanctions imposed over its nuclear and missile programs.
North Korea welcomed a United States envoy's visit to Seoul by firing two missiles Thursday, the South's military said, in Pyongyang's second launch in less than a week as it seeks to up the ante in deadlocked nuclear negotiations with Washington.
A spokesman said the test was "nothing more than part of the regular military training, and it has neither targeted anyone nor led to an aggravation of [the] situation in the region".
The area where Thursday's projectile was launched is believed to be the site of a medium-range Rodong missile base on North Korea's west coast, a Washington-based think tank, the Center for Stratetic International Studies, said.
A summit earlier this year between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un ended in failure.
Meanwhile, U.S. special envoy for DPRK Stephen Biegun is in Seoul for talks with its Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha and his counterpart, nuclear envoy Lee Do-hoon.
The Kusong area has been used to launch multiple missile tests in the past, including North Korea's first successful intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) in 2017. "The red line would be a nuclear test", he said.
Over the weekend, the isolated, communist nation launched several missiles and rockets to show that it is still working on new weapons amid de-escalation talks between President Trump and North Korea's Kim Jong Un.
Moon said during his meeting with Li that he urged Beijing to act as a facilitator for the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, noting China is trusted by North Korea as well as South Korea and the U.S.

"The opportunity for a Task Force to execute multiple launches in a week doesn't happen very often, and this has been a tremendous experience for our team", said Maj.
Under the historic 2002 Pyongyang Declaration, Japan and North Korea agreed to make "every possible effort for an early normalization of the relations", and that Japan will extend economic cooperation to the North after ties are normalized.
Mr Trump and his administration have played down the North Korean weapons tests, which took place last Saturday, and which military analysts say could have involved short-range, ground-to-ground ballistic missiles.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un wants these penalties lifted or lessened and has met with USA officials, including President Donald Trump, to make his case.
It also appeared to hint at the possibility of more weapons tests, saying: "The south Korean military were astonished by the recent strike drill.
That's all there is to say", Peskov noted, commenting on US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo's statement linking North Korean leader's visit to Russian Federation to drills involving new tactical guided missiles, which took place in the country nine days later.
"If the North has something to say, then it has to clarify what it is dissatisfied with", he added, gently prodding the North Koreans to knock off their short-range missile tantrums.
"As long as there's no testing, we're happy", Trump said ahead of his February summit with Kim.
