North Korea open to denuclearize if regime safety guaranteed.

In a major development, North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un may consider scrapping his country's nuclear program.

Main takeaway points from multiple reports:

  • This could be a breakthrough in the recent renewed tensions on the Korean peninsula
  • North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un, and South Korean President Moon Jae will meet for a summit along their shared border at the end of April
  • North Korea is ready to suspend weapons tests and hold candid talks with the U.S. to normalize relations. The announcement came after South Korean envoys returned to Seoul after meeting Kim in Pyongyang. They are expected to visit the U.S. soon.
  • Analysts caution that Kim may be seeking to buy time.
