2018-09-06 08:44
North and South Korea agreed to hold a leaders summit in Pyongyang on September 18-20, and discuss "practical measures" to realise denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, a senior South Korean official said on September 6. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "reconfirmed his determination to completely denuclearise" the Korean peninsula, and expressed his willingness for close cooperation with South Korea and the United States in that regard, the South's national security adviser, Chung Eui-yong, told reporters a day after meeting Kim in Pyongyang. Kim told South Korean officials that his faith in U.S. President Donald Trump remains "unchanged" and he wanted to realise denuclearisation and end long-standing hostile relations between the two countries during Trump's first term, Chung said.
