North Korea Pledges To Close Nuclear Missile Site

The act of removing the dependents would nearly certainly be read in North Korea as a signal that the United States was seriously preparing for war.

North Korea said on Wednesday it would permanently abolish its key missile facilities in the presence of foreign experts, the latest gesture by leader Kim Jong Un to revive faltering talks with Washington over his country's nuclear program.

"On the basis of these important commitments, the United States is prepared to engage immediately in negotiations to transform US-DPRK relations", he said in a statement.

The United States has also invited North Korean representatives to meet with the U.S. special representative for North Korea, Stephen Biegun, in Vienna at the "earliest opportunity", Mr Pompeo said.

The South's presidential office announced Wednesday that the two leaders' visiting Mount Paektu represents the "80 million Korean people combined".

"I propose we move forward toward the big picture of peace in which the past 70-year-long hostility can be eradicated and we can become one again", he said, prompting rapturous applause.

"Kim Jong Un has agreed to allow Nuclear inspections, subject to final negotiations, and to permanently dismantle a test site and launch pad in the presence of worldwide experts", Trump wrote.

Kim Jong Un said he wanted to visit South Korea soon, which would be a first for any North Korean leader, and the North and South have said that they're going to make a joint bid for the summer 2032 Olympic Games.

Moon and Kim have sought to strengthen the North-South relationship at their Pyongyang summit, agreeing that the North Korean leader will visit Seoul "at an early date".

Pompeo also said Washington invited Pyongyang's representatives to meet the USA special representative for North Korea, Stephen Biegun, in Vienna. He didn't indicate in his brief remarks whether the USA would be willing to take further steps to encourage North Korean action on denuclearization.

As the highest mountain on the Korean peninsula, at about 2,750m above sea level, Mount Baekdu is the mythical origin of the Korean people, featuring in South Korea's national anthem and various North Korean propaganda.

According to Pyongyang's narrative, it is also said to be where Kim Il Sung, the country's founder and Kim Jong Un's grandfather, led his anti-Japanese guerilla campaign during the 1910-45 colonial rule. "North Korea has been clear that they will not give up their nuclear weapons - nothing has changed in this joint statement".

It would be the first such trip by a North Korean leader since the Korean War ended in a 1953 armistice, leaving the peninsula divided by the Demilitarized Zone and technically still in a state of war, and Moon said the historic journey could happen later this year.

North Korea markets the tickets mainly to Chinese tourists at an eye-watering price to bring in much-needed valuta. "September 18-21. South Korean President Moon Jae-in" temporarily confused journalists who wondered if Moon's visit had been extended a day.
