But it was only in 2015 that the Koreas' clocks diverged, when Pyongyang put itself back 30 minutes to return to the time zone used in the peninsula before Japan colonised it in 1910.

Kim said he "would soon invite experts of South Korea and the USA as well as journalists to disclose the process to the global community with transparency", Yoon added. Trump this week expressed a preference for the DMZ but also said Singapore was possible.

Trump himself remarked that withdrawing United States forces from North Korea was "not on the table", AP reported.

"There's a vast difference between blowing up a cooling tower and dismantling your only and, if what Kim said was right, functioning nuclear test site", he said, adding Kim was "giving away in advance one of the major chips he could have saved for the actual meeting with Trump".

"I feel sad to see that there are two clocks hung on the wall in the Peace House, one for Seoul time and the other for Pyongyang time", Kim reportedly said at the talks, speaking of a "painful wrench".

Trump has been stressing since his presidential campaign that North Korea grew its nuclear weight despite the American forces' presence in South Korea and also that Washington was not getting adequate compensation for maintaining those troops stationed mainly to defend Japan, another of the US's close ally in the region. He has previously said that it would happen in May or June and still is not providing details but simply said that a time and date had been agreed upon and would be announced soon.
