To cap off their three-day summit, Kim met with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and other officials at the peak of Mount Paektu, along the North Korea-China border on Thursday, Sept. 20.

The volcano is the highest peak in the Korean peninsula and is considered to be the “spiritual birthplace” of the Korean people.

In a joint press conference with Moon, Kim announced that North Korea will close a key missile facility under the presence of “international experts.”

After a brief signing ceremony on Wednesday, Kim and Moon addressed the media and vowed to bring peace to the Korean Peninsula once and for all. /je
