South Korean President Moon Jae-in says he was told by North Korean leader Kim Jong-un that he wants a second summit with President Donald Trump as soon as possible.
The special gift arrived in South Korea earlier in the day, well before Moon returned from the North after his three-day trip there, according to Yoon Young-chan.
Kim Jong-un: "We adopted a military pact to end a history of brutal and tragic confrontation and hostility, and agreed to make efforts to turn the Korean Peninsula into a land of peace without nuclear weapons and nuclear threats."
The United States is ready to restart negotiations with North Korea "immediately", US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Wednesday (Sept 19), with the aim of completing North Korea's denuclearisation by January 2021.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday invited North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho for talks in NY next week, during the annual gathering of world leaders at the United Nations.
Kim asked Pyongyang residents to give Moon "enthusiastic applause", saying the South Korean President would deliver "meaningful remarks" to mark the ongoing inter-Korean summit in Pyongyang.
"Kim Jong-un has agreed to allow nuclear inspections, subject to final negotiations, and to permanently dismantle a test site and launch pad in the presence of worldwide experts", Trump claimed hyperbolically.
North Korea will allow experts from "concerned countries" to watch the closure of its missile engine testing site and launch pad at Tongchang-ri, Moon said at a joint news conference with Kim after their meeting in the North Korean capital.
Meanwhile, the South Korean presidential office on Wednesday announced Moon and Kim will visit Mount Paektu Thursday morning.
"The peace treaty will be fulfilled as the final step of complete denuclearization".
Mr Moon said: "Kim Jong-un expressed his wish that he wanted to complete denuclearisation quickly and focus on economic development". "The need for US forces in Korea is not affected at all". By the end of the day, both leaders had signed a joint agreement supporting the destruction of Kim's nuclear missile facilities, further actions towards officially ending the Korean War once and for all, as well as a plan to pursue a joint bid to host the 2032 Olympic Games.
And progress on freezing operations at Nyongbyon - which is probably not North Korea's only nuclear production site - remains contingent on the USA making concessions of its own, steps that could be politically unpalatable for many in Washington, including among hawks in Trump's own administration and in Congress.
Although Mount Paektu straddles the North Korea-China border and can be reached from China, where it is known as Changbai Mountain, Moon had never visited it before.
