By the end of the historic summit between the leaders of North and South Korea on Friday, aside from vague proclamations of peace and a nuclear-free peninsula, there was one other point the two sides could agree on, cold noodles from Pyongyang are delicious.
"Kim said 'the U.S. feels repelled by us, but once we talk, they will realize that I am not a person who will fire a nuclear weapon to the South or the U.S. or target the US'", according to Yoon.
North Korea's leader promised to invite international observers to monitor the shuttering of his country's nuclear testing facility next month and expressed optimism about his upcoming meeting with President Donald Trump, a spokesman said Sunday.
That's different. And so in each case, both countries will have to do more than words, will have to actually deliver an outcome that is the one that Kim Jong-un and I had the chance to talk about at the direction of the president.
Coral, one of the top British bookmakers, has Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un as favorites - at 2/1 odds - to win the Nobel Peace Prize this year.
Trump, meanwhile, addressed the topic of the planned summit at a campaign-style rally in the town of Washington, Michigan. After all, the only thing after a summit is a cliff. "And so China's preparedness to impose those sanctions has been the critical change that has put the economic pressure on North Korea". And he noted that previous North Korean promises "proved false or unworthy or they were incapable of keeping them".
There have been reports that the test site, buried under Mount Mantap, was suffering from "tired mountain syndrome" and was unusable after last September's huge test, which caused an earthquake so big that satellites caught images of the mountain above the site actually moving.
Yoon said Kim also revealed plans to sync its time zone with South Korea's.
Mattis and Defense Minister Song Young-moo said they were committed to "a diplomatic resolution that achieves complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization" of the North, said the Pentagon's chief spokeswoman, Dana W. White.
Similarly, one could argue that nothing that has happened since the millennium could match a potential Korean peace deal.
North Korea's nuclear tests are of special concern to Beijing, since the test site near the town of Kilju is less than 60 miles from the border with China.
"What we've now got to do is not relent on the economic pressure until that goal is achieved", he said.Australia will send a military aircraft to monitor North Korean vessels suspected of transferring illicit goods in defiance of UN sanctions, he said. South Korean President Moon had an opportunity to press Kim for a more specific statement of his willingness to denuclearize.
The mood in South Korea was overwhelmingly one of euphoria, with ordinary Koreans hailing the meeting as a success and praising Moon's policy of engagement.
North Korea is not the only country to have used a time zone to assert its national identity.
North Korean then explained the decision as an effort to remove a legacy of Japanese colonial rule.
The war is off and the peace has been toasted.
Kim, say skeptics, may well think he can fool Trump into bunches of goodies and a soft hand with a promise of years-long nuke reductions without enough inspectors around to discover the lie.
Yoon added that Seoul and Pyongyang will negotiate on when experts and media personnel will be invited to the North once preparations are made. Chinese geologists are now reporting that the North Korean mountain has collapsed.
The regime also vowed to not enforce military action against South Korea and brought up the idea of an "institutional mechanism" to deter unprecedented conflicts.
