North and South Korea agree to get rid of nuclear weapons


North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, yesterday, made history by crossing the border into South Korea to meet President Moon Jae-in.

The two Koreas have agreed to get rid of their nuclear weapons in historic talks between Jong-un and Jae-in.

Jong-un made history by crossing the border into South Korea for talks on nuclear weapons, becoming the first North Korean leader to set foot in the south since the Korean War ended in 1953.


A joint statement issued by both leaders after the summit said they had confirmed their goal of achieving “a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula through complete denuclearisation.”

The statement did not provide any new specific measures on how to achieve the objective.

North Korea has placed its nuclear weapons up for negotiations and had previously used the term “denuclearisation” to say it could disarm only when the United States (US) withdraws its 28,500 troops in South Korea.
