  • Both heads of North and South Korea Kim Jong Un and Moon Jae-In met in the demilitarized zone to discuss peace between the two

Presidential spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom told reporters Tuesday that the South Korean president held a 30 minute phone call with the U.N. Secretary General that day, during which the two officials agreed to work together in fulfilling the two Koreas' Panmunjom Declaration.

The North Korean diplomat promised to deliver Jokowi's offer to Kim Jong Un.

During a previous dinner, Kim reportedly received a light-hearted rebuke from his wife because of his smoking habits.

The dismantling is part of a string of symbolic gestures after the historic Korean summit last week.

Polls among South Koreans showed, ahead of the summit, only 14.7% thought denuclearization and peace would a real possibility. This is the most dramatic metric yet available on how impactful the summit really was. Kim smoked and drank when he was in his mid-teens, according to Kenji Fujimoto, the personal chef of the late North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il, who also claims to have smoked with Kim. Jokowi said if North Korea and South Korea needed a neutral place to follow up the peace deal, Indonesia was ready to host the two countries.

It was also good for President Moon.

He also promised to designate a United Nations disarmament official to work with the South Korean government, SBS reported.
