North Korea Says It'll Give Up Nukes on One Condition

Moon made the comment Monday in response to a suggestion that he receive the award by the widow of late South Korean President Kim Dae-jung, who was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2000 after a summit with then North Korean leader Kim Jong Il.

To this end, the special summit preparation commission, currently headed by Cheong Wa Dae chief of staff Im Jong-seok, will be turned into a special committee on the implementation of the summit declaration, while the government will do its utmost to help ensure the success of the upcoming U.S. -North Korea summit, the president said.

They continued: "the NCCK hopes that the agreements are thoroughly enforced to ensure the end of the 70-year-old separation and conflict, and in their stead to bring long-lasting peace in the Korean peninsula".

But Patrick McEachern, a former State Department analyst now with the Washington-based Wilson Center, said it was still meaningful that Moon extracted a commitment from Kim to complete denuclearization, which marked a significant change from Kim's previous public demand to expand his arsenal of nuclear weapons in number and quality. "The only thing we need is peace", according to the South's presidential office. "Noting that it was a painful wrench to see two clocks indicating Pyongyang and Seoul times hanging on a wall of the summit venue, he proposed unifying the times of the north and the south before doing anything else", KCNA quoted Kim as saying.

Citing a diplomatic source, the Asahi Shimbun newspaper reported the intention is being conveyed to the North through the two countries, which have close diplomatic relations, adding hopes have emerged of a possible Japan-North Korea summit following the US-North Korea summit scheduled for May or early June.

The northern time zone was created in 2015 to mark the 70th anniversary of Korea's liberation from Japanese rule after World War Two. "I think he [Kim] didn't realize who Donald Trump was at that time until I guess he started reading the books and started to get an understanding", Rodman told TMZ.

Kim and Moon had pledged to work for "complete denuclearisation" of the Korean peninsula and agreed on a common goal of a "nuclear-free" peninsula.

"That's very nice, thank you", Trump replied.

Kim also told Moon during the summit he would soon invite experts and journalists from the United States and South Korea when the country dismantles its Punggye-ri nuclear testing site, the Blue House said on Sunday.

A national ecumenical body which includes the Anglican Church of Korea has welcomed Friday's historic agreement between the leaders of North and South Korea.

A survey taken on Friday, the day North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met South Korean President Moon Jae-in, showed 64.7 percent believe the North will denuclearise and keep peace. The U.S. superpower is particularly prone to read the decisions of others as products of its own. The Trump administration wants enormous concessions from North Korea-CVID (complete, verifiable, irreversible dismantlement) of the nuclear program.

The Trump administration has led a global effort to impose ever stricter sanctions on North Korea. But there is still deep skepticism over whether Kim is truly willing to negotiate away the nuclear weapons that his country has built after decades of struggle.

But Kim said there were two additional, larger tunnels that remain "in very good condition" beyond the existing one, which experts believe may have collapsed. He said that Kim believed Americans despised him but they would understand once they have a talk him. Also, Trump has threatened to walk out of his summit with Kim.

Much of this confusion stems from the debate over why the North Koreans have suddenly chosen this moment to deal. We have no data from inside North Korea to actually support either interpretation of course.
