FOX NEWS - North Korea promised to not use nuclear or conventional weapons against South Korea and expressed willingness to hold talks with the United States on denuclearizing, Seoul said on Tuesday.
The regime said it wouldn’t need to keep its nuclear weapons if military threats against North Korea were resolved, South Korea’s presidential national security director said after meeting North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
The North added it was ready to have “heart-to-heart” talks with the U.S. about the regime’s potential denuclearization and normalization between the countries.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in sent a special envoy to meet with Kim on Monday. The two parties held talks during the two-day visit.
North Korea also agreed to hold summit talks in late April, South Korea said.
The comments mark a major change in tone after months of bombastic threats by the rogue regime to keep developing its nuclear and missile program.
