North Korean leader Kim Jong Un restates vow to denuclearize, desire to meet Donald Trump: Moon

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has restated his pledge to denuclearize the Korean Peninsula and expressed his willingness to hold talks with U.S. President Donald Trump, South Korean President Moon Jae In said Sunday.

Moon made the comments during a press conference in Seoul, a day after he held a surprise meeting with Kim at the truce village of Panmunjeom.

Moon said the inter-Korean summit on Saturday was proposed by North Korea.

North Korea on Sunday separately announced some of the results of the meeting through its state-run media saying that Kim had expressed his “fixed will” to have talks with Trump.

The latest meeting between Moon and Kim, which lasted about two hours at Tongilgak, a building on the North Korean side of Panmunjeom, came a month after they held the first inter-Korean summit over a decade.
