Trump suggests meeting Kim Jong Un in Truce Village at DMZ

South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un arrive at the Peace House in the truce village of Panmunjom inside the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas South Korea

"The core achievement of the South-North summit was that Chairman [of the Workers' Party of Korea] Kim Jong Un expressed an intention for 'complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, ' in his own words, and signed a document".

In a joint statement the two countries said that one of the purposes of strengthening cooperation between Pyongyang and Seoul is to work on meetings for Korean subjects involving the United States and China.

South Korean officials will continue to closely coordinate with the Americans, and Moon will provide details of his meeting with Kim, said Moon Chung-in, a special adviser to Moon for foreign affairs and national security.

But Peace House, on the border between the Koreas, would be a "Representative, Important and Lasting" venue, he mused.

Buoying prospects for the Trump-Kim summit was a North Korean announcement on Sunday that it would close its main nuclear test site next month. "Donald Trump at 2/1 to win 2018 Nobel Peace Prize", Trump Jr. tweeted on Friday.

During their summit at a truce village on the border, Moon and Kim promised to work toward the "complete denuclearization" of the Korean Peninsula but made no references to verification or timetables.

Trump said the Peace House carried symbolic value that having the summit in a third country would not have.

The move returns North Korea to Korea Standard Time, which runs 30 minutes ahead of Pyongyang Time. According to South Korean officials, he told Moon that he's going to shut down his country's only known nuclear testing site and allow experts and journalists to observe. But as usual, the president left open the possibility of pulling the plug on talks, saying: "If it's not a success, I will respectfully leave".

Want to warn others this story may be fake?

South Korea says it will remove propaganda-broadcasting loudspeakers from the border with North Korea.

"Moon will be collecting information for Trump when he visits Washington in mid-May", he said.

In response, Moon named Trump. The White House said they "agreed that the unprecedented pressure" put on North Korea by international sanctions "led to this significant moment".

Kim Dae-jung championed the so-called Sunshine policy of engagement with North Korea, and won the 2000 Nobel Peace Prize after engineering the first inter-Korean summit with former North Korean leader Kim Jong Il. At a rally Saturday in Michigan, Trump discussed Korea and was interrupted by a chant of "Nobel!"

The meeting was rightfully garnered global attention, and it was the first time a sitting North Korean leader had stepped foot in South Korean territory since the Korean War began.
