and now on monday decided to press pause. for more, let's turn to cnn's matt rivers live in seoul. matt, for anyone who checked out for the weekend and now checking back in, it looks like the summit is back on. the june 12th date circled on the calendar. >> reporter: absolutely. we spent the last four days listening that all sides are pushing forward. let's give you an an updaupdate. a team of americans went to the demilitarized zone yesterday to meet with their north korean counterparts to try to hammer out the details of the potential summit. we know they are not pemeeting today, but they could meet tomorrow. down in singapore, we know a north korean official, according to video we have seen, has gone
1:03 am
to singapore to meet with the american logistics team there. both sides are trying to work out what would happen and what would take place. it is worth noting the part of the summit being canceled is because of the last time the logistics team from the u.s. went there, the north koreans did not show up. and we see an official from north korea, the top negotiator from north korea, was spotted at the airport. all of these things together show these working level talks and working level diplomacy is ongoing. we could see more meetings with secretary of state mike pompeo and north korean officials before the summit takes place. one more thing, prime minister shinzo abe of japan, will be meeting with president trump before any summit. >> all of this is on hyper

1:06 am
>> it is not the official summer start of barbecues season. memorial day. a top official at health and human services claiming reports the agency lost track of nearly 1,500 children is misleading. a statement released saying the children are not lost. he insists it is a case of sponsors not responding to follow-up calls and the agency is not under obligation to make the calls. he says the calls are made voluntarily. >> he writes, many cannot be reached because they themselves are illegal aliens and do not want to be reached by federal authorities. this information came to light in the meeting in april which is triggering scrutiny that immigrant children are separated from parents at the u.s. border. the dhs secretary kirstjen nielsen says separations happen
