The South Korean Presidential office Cheong Wa Dae said North Korea’s nuclear site will close in May.
The relations between the South and North have been warming up rapidly after the top leaders of South and North joined in a very successful summit which has been dubbed as a historic one.
South Korea’s Yonhap news agency reported that during a live broadcast delivered by President Moon Jae-in’s chief press secretary Yoon Young-chan quoted North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as saying: “Some say that we are terminating facilities that are not functioning, but you will see that we have two more tunnels that are bigger than the existing ones and that they are in good condition.”
Mr. Kim said he will prove that he is not a kind of person who fires nukes at South Korea, the Pacific or America.

Yoon Young-chan quoted Kim: “Although I am inherently resistant toward America, people will see that I am not the kind of person who fires nukes at South Korea, the Pacific or America.”
“Why would we keep nuclear weapons and live in a difficult condition if we often meet with Americans to build trust and they promise us to end the war and not to invade us?”
North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has promised not to repeat the mistake by repeating the “painful history of the Korean War.”
Kim Jong-un said, “concrete measures are necessary to stop any accidental military confrontation from happening.”
Yonhap reported that the North Korea’s leader has also agreed to unify the time zones used in South Korea and North Korea.

Yonhap quoted Kim: “I feel sad to see that there are two clocks hung on the wall of the Peace House, one for Seoul time and the other for Pyongyang time. Since it is us who changed the time standard, we will return to the original one. You can make it public.”
