North Korea agrees to freeze missile tests

SEOUL: The leaders of North and South Korea will hold a historic summit in the Demilitarized Zone next month after Pyongyang expressed willingness to give up its nuclear weapons in exchange for security guarantees, Seoul said on Tuesday.
The North is open to “frank” talks with the United States on denuclearisation and would suspend missile and nuclear tests while dialogue was under way, the South’s national security adviser Chung Eui-Yong said after returning from a meeting in Pyongyang with leader Kim Jong-Un. US President Donald Trump gave a cautious welcome to the announcement.
“Possible progress being made in talks with North Korea,” Trump tweeted. “For the first time in many years, a serious effort is being made by all parties concerned.”
“The World is watching and waiting! May be false hope, but the US is ready to go hard in either direction!”
