MAJOR steps towards peace in the Korean peninsula were taken today as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un promised to dismantle the country’s main nuclear complex to “eliminate the danger of war.”
The declaration was made during the third summit between Mr Kim and his South Korean counterpart President Moon Jae In in Pyongyang.
Mr Kim said: “We have agreed to make the Korean Peninsula a land of peace that is free from nuclear weapons and nuclear threat,” pledging that international inspectors would be allowed to witness the dismantling of the complex at Nyongbyon.
The two leaders agreed to remove landmines and 11 military posts from the demilitarised area separating the countries, with a no fly-zone established above the 30-mile border.
“The road to our future will not always be smooth and we may face challenges and trials we can’t anticipate,” said Mr Kim.
“But we aren’t afraid of headwinds because our strength will grow as we overcome each trial based on the strength of our nation.”
