North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has agreed to shut one of the country’s main missile testing and launch sites.

He signed a pledge to permanently close the Tongchang-ri facility, after talks in Pyongyang with his South Korean counterpart Moon Jae-in.

Both leaders also “agreed on a way to achieve denuclearisation” on the Korean peninsula, Mr. Moon said.

Mr. Kim said he hoped to “visit Seoul in the near future” – he would be the first North Korean leader to do so.

China has welcomed the outcome of the inter-Korean summit, saying both sides had found “new and important common ground”.-BBC
