Agency News

Seoul, Sep 19: Leaders of North and South Korea plan to sign a joint statement on inter-Korean relations after their summit on Wednesday in the North's capital Pyongyang, Seoul officials said.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in will hold a joint news conference after the signing ceremony, and after the two Korea's defence chiefs adopt a separate military pact, Moon's press secretary Yoon Young-chan told reporters.

The content of the agreements was immediately not known. It is said that Kim has offered to Moon Jae-in that North Korea is ready to permanently dismantle the North's main nuclear complex if the United States takes corresponding measures.

Both the leaders have also agreed to the acceptance of international inspectors to monitor the closing of a key missile test site and launch pad and a vow to work together to host the summer Olympics in 2032. (PenNews with input from UNI)
