North Korean leader Kim Jong Un promised to sync his country's time zone with the South's during his April 27 talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

Following his meeting with the North Korean leader, Moon Jae-In reported that Kim would be willing to give up their nuclear weapons and program if the Donald Trump would agree that the United States would bring a formal end to the Korean War and promise not to attack North Korea.

North and South are now vastly different societies, one a democratic member of the OECD club of developed countries, and the other an impoverished, hereditary one-party state left isolated by its pursuit of nuclear weapons.

President Donald Trump is offering his latest teaser for a historic US summit with North Korea: The time and place have been set, but he's not saying when and where.

Trump told the National Rifle Association's annual convention in Dallas on Friday that he had toned down his rhetoric in anticipation of the talks after labelling Kim "Little Rocket Man" past year and threatening him with 'fire and fury'.

The Saturday change saw North Korea set its clocks 30 minutes ahead, doing away with "Pyongyang Time", which was created in 2015. He has previously said that it would happen in May or June and still is not providing details but simply said that a time and date had been agreed upon and would be announced soon. Nonetheless, while Trump is certainly the most unpredictable president ever, it seems unlikely he will cancel. Trump's base is presently enamoured with the idea of him winning a Nobel Peace Prize.

According to the Yonhap news agency, the incident occurred in the town of Paju near the border with North Korea.

The North once invited foreign observers and journalists to its main Yongbyon atomic complex in 2008 when it destroyed an aged cooling tower - with the dramatic explosion televised globally within hours. In contrast, I predict, the North will suggest a slower approach and extend the discussion to American weapons.

They further discussed the denuclearisation of North Korea as both the sides called for the resolution of the problem through dialogue and consultation.

The North and the South have recently stated that US military bases can remain in South Korea - an unprecedented Northern concession.

At the same meeting last week, Kim also vowed to begin shutting down North Korea's nuclear test site in Punggye-ri this month. "The last administration had a policy of silence".

While Trump's National Security Adviser John Bolton rubbished the report a few times, the Blue House or the official residence of the South Korean president also said the report did not say it right.
