Kang said "a review is under way" when asked about the measures that prohibit nearly all inter-Korean exchanges outside of humanitarian assistance.
You, who said he has entered North Korea on humanitarian visits, said there were no priests there and the country needed religious freedom.
US President Donald Trump said he didn't expect to meet Kim Jong Un until after US elections in November, as the administration struggles to secure denuclearization commitments from North Korea.
Kim Jong-un has invited the Pope to visit North Korea in what appears to be a conciliatory gesture to the outside world. These sanctions, dubbed the May 24 measures, had been put in place after an attack on a South Korean warship in 2010 that killed 46.
Trump said at the White House that the meeting would "probably" not be in Singapore, where their historic first talks took place in June.
A move by South Korea to lift some of its sanctions would have little immediate effect since USA -led global sanctions remain in place. "As there are many (bilateral) sanctions overlapping the United Nations ones, it won't necessarily mean the substantive lifting (of sanctions on the North)".
Cho refused to comment on Trump's remarks, but said Washington was not opposed to inter-Korean dialogue and exchanges, and the allies are in close consultation.
Sanctions relief is thought to be among the corresponding measures North Korea has asked for from the United States in return for its dismantling of a major nuclear compound in Yongbyon.
While Washington holds a veto on the UN Security Council - meaning it can prevent motions to alter worldwide sanctions - it has no power over Seoul's policies, which include a range of bilateral sanctions against North Korea. "In this current state, North Korea's plan to bring revolution to the South has not been suspended", Jeon said Wednesday. Kang did not specify what Pompeo was unhappy about, but said he asked "multiple questions" about the agreement's content. Kang's comments are likely to fuel speculation that Washington wasn't fully on board before Seoul signed the agreement.
While some in the United States administration have indicated that denuclearization could be completed within the lifespan of the Trump administration, some experts say it could take more than a decade - assuming it is faithfully implemented, which many doubt.
"Still, the government is maintaining a flexible stance (in enforcing the measures) under the circumstances we conduct inter-Korean projects amid improving relations between South Korea and North Korea", he said, adding the previous conservative governments also did so.
Moon has mostly stayed firm on sanctions despite actively engaging with North Korea and floating the possibility of huge investments and joint economic projects in return for the North's relinquishment of its nuclear weapons.
The closure of the factory park had deprived Kaesong residents of what had been a steady supply of water and electricity. The Koreas have also resumed temporary reunions between war-separated relatives and reached military agreements to reduce tensions across the border.
