  • North Korea pledges to close down key missile test site

Mr. Trump noted other gains, including North Korea releasing American prisoners, returning remains of USA soldiers from the Korean War and stopping its nuclear and missile tests. "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. They said the North was also willing to close its main nuclear complex if the United States took unspecified "reciprocal action".

On the second day of his summit meeting with President Moon Jae-in of South Korea, Mr. Kim signed a series of agreements aimed at easing tensions between the two countries, like stopping military exercises and creating no-fly zones near their shared border.

The North's offer to close the Yongbyong facility was coupled with a pledge to permanently shut down its missile engine testing facility and launch pad under the watchful eye of worldwide experts.

President Trump said Wednesday that "tremendous progress" was being made toward North Korea giving up nuclear weapons.

The two leaders also agreed to pursue a bid to co-host the 2032 Olympic Games, and Moon said he expects Kim Jong-un to soon become the first North Korean leader to ever visit Seoul.

Moon traveled to Pyongyang Tuesday with the goal of breaking an impasse between North Korea and the USA over the pace of Pyongyang's intentions in ending its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

In his statement on Wednesday, Pompeo said commitments made at a summit between the leaders of North and South Korea were positive enough that the U.S. Trump canceled Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's trip to Pyongyang last month over the impasse.
