N. Korea to close nuclear test site next month, open its dismantling to outside: Cheong Wa Dae

SEOUL, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has promised to close down his country's nuclear test site next month and to invite outside experts and journalists to witness its dismantling, Seoul's presidential office said Sunday.

During his meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in on Friday, Kim also offered to move his country's clocks 30 minutes forward to unify time zones with the South.

Moon and Kim held the third-ever inter-Korean summit at the border truce village of Panmunjom. They reaffirmed their shared goal of complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. They also agreed to work toward a formal end of the Korean War within this year, to halt all hostile acts and to push for a series of inter-Korean cooperation projects.

During the summit, Kim told Moon that he will "carry out the closure of the northern nuclear test site in May," Moon's chief press secretary Yoon Young-chan told reporters.
