North Korea ready to denuclearize

Amman, North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Un, on Thursday said his country is willing to denuclearize, otherwise he would not be in Vietnam holding a second summit with US President Donald Trump.

The two leaders began a second day of talks earlier on Thursday in the Vietnamese capital, Hanoi, with both expressing hope for progress on improving relations and the key issue of denuclearization.

Kim did not elaborate on what denuclearization would entail, but when asked if he was ready to take concrete steps, he said they had just been talking about that. "Hope you give us more time to talk. Even a minute is precious," he told reporters.

He also said he would welcome the US opening a liaison office in Pyongyang, which is a key initial step in normalizing relations between the former wartime foes.
