The Democratic People's Republic of Korea(DPRK)'s leader Kim Jong Un means to abolish all nuclear weapons, materials and facilities to achieve “complete” denuclearization, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Friday.

Moon also said DPRK and the United States are in working-level discussions to arrange a second summit between Kim and U.S. President Donald Trump as soon as the U.S. midterm elections are over, according to a script of Moon’s interview with BBC shared by his office.

After his third summit in Pyongyang last month with Kim, Moon said DPRK was ready to invite international experts to watch the dismantling of a key missile site and would close the main Yongbyon nuclear complex if Washington took reciprocal actions.

In the BBC interview, Moon said the actions could include opening of a U.S. liaison office in DPRK, humanitarian aid and an exchange of economic experts.

Trump said on Tuesday his second summit with Kim would be held after U.S. congressional elections on Nov. 6.
