NKorea says summit a 'new milestone'

North Korea's state news agency says the inter-Korean summit will be a "new milestone" in bringing about joint prosperity and a turning point for the Korean peninsula.

The North's central news agency separately released the joint statement North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in announced on Friday after the first summit in more than a decade between the two Koreas.

Kim and Moon had pledged to work for "complete denuclearisation" of the Korean peninsula and agreed on a common goal of a "nuclear-free" peninsula.
