Huge breakthrough in Korea crisis
THE KOREAN leaders have agreed on a process to completely denuclearise the Korean peninsula.
South Korean president Moon Jae-in says the two leaders have reached a conclusion on a range of measures designed to bring an end to simmering tensions.
He said North Korea will close its Tongchang-ri missile testing site following the ongoing three-day summit in Pyongyang.
"The North agreed to permanently close the Tongchang-ri missile engine test site and missile launch facility in the presence of experts from relevant nations," Mr Moon told reporters.
He also said the North had agreed to permanently dismantle its main Nyongban nuclear complex if the United States takes corresponding measures.
The two countries have also reportedly agreed to jointly host the 2032 Summer Olympics.
The pair spoke at a new conference after signing a joint statement.
The defense chiefs of the two Koreas also signed their agreements that Seoul says are about reducing military tensions along the border.
Today marked the leaders' second day of summit talks in the North Korean capital.
They were accompanied by their wives and top government officials, including Moon's national security adviser Chung Eui-yong and Kim's sister, Kim Yo Jong, who is seen as one of the hermit nation's most popular figures in the regime.
Before their meeting, Mr Moon attended a performance of North Korea's iconicm ass games.
South Korean media pool reports said Mr Kim thanked Mr Moon for brokering his Singapore summit with US president Donald Trump in June, which he credited with bringing stability to the region.
Mr Moon is expected to depart back to Seoul tomorrow.
