The UN Secretary-General António Guterres has welcomed the outcome reached at the third Summit this year between the leaders of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (a.k.a. North Korea) and the Republic of Korea.

According to a UN statement released Wednesday, he commends the determination and diplomacy which led to the important agreements contained in Pyongyang Joint Declaration.

The commitments reflected in the joint statement include important military confidence‑building measures and a commitment by the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea to dismantle missile-engine testing infrastructure in the presence of experts from related countries. “Now it is time for concrete action,” Guterres suggested.

Earlier, the U.S. President Donald Trump claimed that the supreme leader of North Korea Kim Jong Un has agreed to allow inspections of nuclear sites in his country.

Trump also said there will be no rocket or nuclear testing by North Korea and North and South Korea will file a joint bid to host the 2032 Olympics.

The UN Secretary-General called for unity of the international community to support the parties in their endeavours towards sustainable peace, security and complete and verifiable denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula, in accordance with relevant Security Council resolutions.

He reiterated his commitment and the readiness of the United Nations system to further assist the parties in any way they deem appropriate.
