🇰🇵 Is North Korea changing priorities? | Al Jazeera English


Leader Kim Jong-un has promised to shut down North Korea’s nuclear test site next month.

He reiterated the pledge during his summit with South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in on Friday.

But there’s no word on the future of his ballistic missiles programme, nor whether he’ll bow to demands from the US President to get rid of nuclear weapons altogether.

North Korea’s state media said before the historic summit Pyongyang wants to focus on economic growth.

A marked departure from hostile rhetoric.

How will this play out inside North Korea?
