Seoul, South Korea North Korea is willing to talk to the United States about giving up its nuclear weapons, South Korea said Tuesday.

South Korea reports that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has agreed to discuss denuclearization of nuclear weapons and missiles if it holds talks with the United States.

According to an official of South Korea’s presidential office on Tuesday, Kim suggested his meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s special envoys, who was in Pyongyang for a two-day visit starting Monday

“Chairman Kim said that even denuclearization could be among the agenda items for talks between North Korea and the U.S.,” the official told reporters on condition of anonymity. “What drew our attention, in particular, is that he made clear that achieving denuclearization is his father’s dying wish and that it has not changed at all.

The source added: “Kim also didn’t specify anything special from South Korea or other countries in return for the North coming to dialogue but expressed an intent to be treated seriously as a counterpart for talks.”

The U.S. has said that the North should show its seriousness in efforts on denuclearization before resuming talks. The North had claimed that denuclearization could not be discussed in any circumstances.
