Led command approves South Korean border crossings into North Korea

US-led command approves South Korean border crossings into North Korea

However, no details were agreed, and Washington and Pyongyang have sparred since over what that means and how it will be achieved.

But Kim has since sent Trump a letter seeking a second summit and held a military parade for his country's 70th birthday without showing off any intercontinental ballistic missiles, prompting warm tweets from the USA president and raising hopes of progress. But its operation was suspended in 2016 amid an escalating standoff over North Korea's long-range rocket launches.

At his meetings with Moon and Trump, Kim signed statements pledging the complete denuclearization of the peninsula.

"UNC has and continues to actively enable all of the engagements between North and South Korea that require crossing the military demarcation line and the demilitarized zone, which are under the authority of UN Command", Brooks said.

The report submitted to the Security Council's North Korea sanctions committee last month said Pyongyang had not stopped its nuclear and missile programs and was violating United Nations sanctions on exports. After an earlier Pompeo visit, Pyongyang accused Washington of making "unilateral and gangster-like" demands on denuclearization and bristled at the idea that it must take significant steps toward dismantling its nuclear program before a peace treaty is signed or worldwide sanctions are lifted.

The decisions came amid a flurry of activity as the two Koreas move to improve relations amid efforts to restart stalled nuclear talks between the North and the United States.

The Korean War ended in 1953 with an armistice, not a peace treaty, and both sides remain technically at war.

Poland to not support European Union sanctions against Hungary
The Czech government stands behind Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban , Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis said on Thursday. However, because this step has never been taken before, it is not clear what will happen next, or when.

South Korea has said it hopes the liaison office will help in those efforts.

This undated photo released on Sept, 12, 2018, from South Korea Unification Ministry via Newsis, shows a liaison office building between South and North Korea in Kaesong, North Korea.

Top US diplomat Pompeo on Friday said the United States is "as committed as ever to continuing to enforce those UN Security Council resolutions".

The resumptions of the Kaesong park and other dormant inter-Korean cooperation projects won't likely happen anytime soon because USA -led global sanctions on North Korea remain in place. The late North Korean leader Kim Jong Il invited South Korean president Kim Dae-jung to Pyongyang in 2000 and Roh Moo-hyun in 2007.

Chung conveyed similarly promising comments from Kim after a previous visit in March, when South Korean officials shuttled between Pyongyang and Washington to set up the Trump-Kim meeting. If Moon can't convince Kim to express a commitment to concrete denuclearization steps, he will at least have to get Kim to put the things Chung has said he was told in a written agreement, said Du Hyeogn Cha, a visiting scholar at Seoul's Asan Institute for Policy Studies.

The office is the first of its kind since the two countries were divided at the end of World War II in 1945.
