S.Korea halts nuclear tests with condition
9 March, 2018North Korea is willing to hold talks with the United States on denuclearisation and will suspend nuclear tests while those talks are under way, the South said on 6 March after a delegation returned from the North where it met leader Kim Jong Un. The two Koreas will hold their first summit in more than a decade in late April, the South's presidential office also said.“North Korea made clear its willingness to denuclearise the Korean peninsula and the fact there is no reason for it to have a nuclear programme if military threats against the North are resolved and its regime is secure,” the head of the South delegation, Chung Eui-yong, told a media briefing. North and South Korea, still technically at war but enjoying a sharp easing in tension since the Winter Olympics in the South last month. Washington and Pyongyang have been at loggerheads for months over the North's nuclear and missile programmes, with US President Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un trading insults and threatening war. The last inter-Korean summit was in 2007, when late former president Roh Moo-hyun was in office.
