North Korea is reportedly committed to completely dismantle nuclear test site. It was announced at a joint press conference of both Koreas’ leaders. In exchange the US would need to commit to “corresponding measures” towards North Korea.

After years of being on a brink of a new war Korean Peninsula is finally close to achieving peace. The two leaders agree to take steps to lower the tension between the countries. It is said that North Korea has agreed to allow international Nuclear inspections. Kim Jong Un has also agreed to completely dismantle a nuclear test site and launch pad.

Among other important statements was a pledge to file a joint bid to host the 2032 olympics. “We have agreed to make the Korean Peninsula a land of peace that is free from nuclear weapons and nuclear threat,” Kim said. His South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in also addressed the 150 000 at the performance of “mass games”, a synchronized gymnastics show. “We must live together as one people”, Moon said to the North Koreans.

Korean leaders also agreed to set up a buffer zone near their borders and one in The Yellow Sea. Some economic measures were also agreed upon which should be implemented if the US removed the sanctions imposed on North Korea.

The US president Donald Trump commented on the matter in his usual manner on Twitter.
