Donald Trump sees 'tremendous progress' in North Korea

Donald Trump sees 'tremendous progress' in North Korea”

North Korea says Kim's grandfather and father were born at Mount Paektu, a centrepiece of the North's idolization and propaganda campaign to highlight the ruling family's sacred bloodline.

North Korea pledged to shut down one of its nuclear test sites in a meeting yesterday between South Korean President Moon Jae-in and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un in Pyongyang.

"On the basis of these important commitments, the United States is prepared to engage immediately in negotiations to transform US-DPRK relations", he said in a statement.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was said to have climbed Mount Paektu in "smart shoes" a year ago.

Kim promised to accept worldwide inspectors to monitor the closing of a key missile test site and launch pad and to visit Seoul soon, and both leaders vowed to work together to try to host the Summer Olympics in 2032.

Trump says that he and Kim have a solid relationship, and both leaders have expressed interest in a follow-up summit to their meeting in June in Singapore.

The hope is that it will kickstart talks between the U.S. and North Korea which have stalled.

Kim say Mount Paektu has become a "subject of yearning" for South Koreans and Koreans living overseas. "They don't meaningfully constrain North Korea's nuclear programme".

"But it is no closer to North Korean disarmament", he said.

Many South Koreans also feel drawn to the volcano, which, according to Korean mythology, was the birthplace of Dangun, the founder of the first ancient Korean kingdom, and has always been considered one of the most lovely places on the peninsula.

That was followed by a historic speech by Moon to the North Korean people at a packed May Day Stadium in Pyongyang, where the South Korean leader announced the deal with Kim. "Prior to becoming president, it looked like we were going to war with North Korea, and now we have a lot of progress", Mr. Trump said.

On Thursday, Moon and Kim, accompanied by their wives, visited Mount Paektu on the Chinese border, Seoul said.

Washington and Pyongyang have subsequently sparred over what that means and how it will be achieved, with the Trump administration consistently referring to the denuclearization of North Korea specifically.

South Korean tourists flock to see the mountain via China but only a handful of Southerners have been granted access from the North Korean side, mostly for research purposes.
