Two Koreas, U.N. Command to hold first meeting on demilitarizing border

The Latest: Koreas to break ground on inter-Korean railroad

At a summit with US President Donald Trump in Singapore Kim declared his backing for denuclearisation of the peninsula, but no details were agreed and Washington and Pyongyang have subsequently sparred over what that means and how it will be achieved.

He also noted that the United States and North Korea should build up trust before denuclearization. "If it breaks the agreement, it will not be able to afford the retribution from the US and the global community". Even if the sanctions are imposed for a decade or a century, North Korea will overcome them "to emerge as the world's strongest power and socialist paradise", it wrote. The Korea-France Friendship Concert is the latest in a series of cultural events the two countries have held since the 2015-2016 "France-Korea year", which marked the 130th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between them.

After his third summit in Pyongyang, Moon said the North was ready to invite worldwide experts to watch the dismantling of a key missile site and would close the main Yongbyon nuclear complex if Washington took reciprocal actions.

"We are waiting for precise commitments from Pyongyang to demonstrate its real desire to engage in a dismantlement of its nuclear and ballistic programmes", Macron told a news conference alongside his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in.

Kim's grandfather, North Korea's founder Kim Il Sung, visited Mongolia when it was still a Soviet state in 1988. Burke Hamilton, the secretary of the U.N. Command's military armistice committee, reviewed the ongoing demining operations at the Joint Security Area and further plans to demilitarize the zone.

Former public prosecutor and conservative activist Koh Young-Ju had accused Moon of planning to turn South Korea into "a red communist country" if he became president during a public forum in January 2013.

"Venom" Continues To Dominate Box Office At No. 1
Beyond new story missions, there's a whole new faction of enemies, new crimes, new challenges, new trophies, and three new suits. It's even possible that Tom Holland's Spider-Man could crossover with the symbiotes in a future movie.

At last week's summit with South Korea's President Moon Jae-in, Kim promised to allow outside inspections on key missile facilities, and expressed a willingness, for the first time, to "permanently" scrap North Korea's main nuclear complex.

The two Koreas are aiming to dismantle 11 posts within a 1 km radius of the Military Demarcation Line by the end of the year, with more guard posts and landmines to be gradually removed later.

Moon's government last week walked back a proposal to lift some of its unilateral sanctions against North Korea following Trump's blunt retort that Seoul could "do nothing" without Washington's approval.

We will remind, South Korean engineers began to mine two plots of land border with North Korea (DPRK).

Moon has advocated engagement with the isolated North to nudge it toward denuclearization. Kim is a reporter for the conservative Chosun Ilbo, South Korea's biggest newspaper, which has been largely critical of Moon's policies.
