N. Korean media say Kim and Trump to discuss peace

North Korea’s state media KCNA reported this morning that its leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump will discuss a “permanent and durable peace-keeping mechanism” on the Korean peninsula and denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula.

“Wide-ranging and profound views on the issue of establishing new DPRK-US relations, the issue of building a permanent and durable peace-keeping mechanism on the Korean peninsula, the issue of realising the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula and other issues of mutual concern, as required by the changed era, will be exchanged at the DPRK-US summit talks,” the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported.

The report in English also said Mr Kim is being accompanied by Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho, Defence Minister No Kwang Chol and his sister Ms Kim Yo Jong.

KCNA noted that the summit, the first between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader, will take place “under the great attention and expectation of the whole world”.
