They also agreed to establish a liaison office at the North Korean border town of Kaesong soon and hold talks on fielding combined teams in some sports at the Asian Games in August.
Lavrov´s visit came as US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and a top North Korean official held talks on planning a historic summit between Kim and President Donald Trump in Singapore.
Trump says after an Oval Office meeting Friday with North Korea'sKim Yong Chol that he'd be making a mistake not to go forward with the on-again, off-again nuclear summit in Singapore.
He and Pompeo shook hands shortly after 9:00 am (1300 GMT) and began their talks over breakfast, with four people on each side. They continued to speak and posed for photos before Kim got into a black SUV and departed.
Mr Trump last week called off the summit after North Korea expressed anger at comments by senior US officials, but Mr Trump later said he was reconsidering his position and US, North Korean and South Korean officials have gone ahead with summit preparations.
Trump later told the Reuters news agency it may take more than one meeting with Kim Jong Un to seal a denuclearization deal with North Korea and that he would like Pyongyang to dismantle its nuclear weapons program as quickly as possible under any agreement.
North Korea's flurry of diplomatic activity following a torrid run in nuclear weapons and missile tests in 2017 suggests that Kim is eager for sanctions relief to build his economy and the worldwide legitimacy the summit with Trump would provide.

USA teams also met with North Korean delegations in Singapore and the Korean demilitarized zone.

The sports court decided a ban through January 2019 was an "appropriate sanction.in light of Mr Guerrero's degree of fault".
Since Trump's abrupt cancellation last week of the historic meeting with Kim, there's been an global scramble to salvage the event - with rapid-fire diplomacy efforts in the US, on the Korean Peninsula and in Singapore, the Southeast Asian city-state hosting the summit.
If the North Korean delegation goes to the White House, it would be the first visit there by high-level officials from there since 2000 when Jo Myong Rok, a marshal, met President Bill Clinton.
His travel restrictions were lifted this week so he could fly to NY and Washington, DC to meet U.S. officials, the Department of State said.
The White House said talks of the "total denuclearization of the peninsula" do not extend to US weapons systems - a defense umbrella covering South Korea that includes nuclear-armed submarines and strategic bombers capable of carrying nuclear bombs not based on the peninsula. That was the last time the two sides, which are technically at war, attempted to arrange a leadership summit.
Nevertheless, the U.S. president had warm words for Pyongyang, saying the long discussions had touched on North Korea's denuclearisation and economic development.
Then Trump pivoted sharply back to the Mueller investigation , which he has elevated in status to "Rigged Witch Hunt". That's according to a financial report released Thursday by the Justice Department.
