Moon asks UN verify Kim promise

South Korean President Moon Jae-in has asked the United Nations to help verify the planned shutdown of North Korea’s nuclear test site.

South Korea’s presidential office says Moon made the request by phone to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Tuesday.

Moon explained that the North’s leader Kim Jong Un promised at the recent inter-Korean summit to invite experts from the South and the United States, as well as journalists, to verify the closure.

Moon asked that the UN play a role in confirming the North’s commitment to denuclearization.
