At a meeting with members of a special delegation of South Korean President Moon Jae-in Pyongyang on Wednesday, Kim said he strongly supports and is devoted to completely removing the danger of armed conflicts and the horror of war from the Korean Peninsula, and turning it into a cradle of peace, minus nuclear weapons, and free from nuclear threat.
