South Korean president to visit USA ahead of Trump's North Korea visit

North Korea on Friday at 2330 returned to Korean Standard Time (KST), bringing the two Koreas into the same time zone for the first time in close to three years. "We now have a date and we have a location", Trump told reporters prior to leaving for Dallas, where he was set to speak at the National Rifle Association annual convention.

South Korean police took action Saturday to prevent defectors from launching balloons filled with leaflets critical of the Kim regime into the North, an act Pyongyang has described as an "act of war".

"Then (they) went too far again to about 00:17 and eventually back again to the new correct time".

Trump disclosed Friday that the time and place for the meeting had been determined.

North Korean media report leader Kim Jong-un proposed the change after seeing clocks with two different times for North and South at the Peace House at the truce village of Panmunjeom, the venue of the landmark inter-Korean summit.

"We're doing very well with the hostages, we're in constant contact with the leadership, we're in constant contact with North Korea", the president said on the tarmac at Andrews Air Force Base.

Accordingly, the two Koreas removed their propaganda loudspeakers this week.

The report is also of significance at this time since Washington and Seoul are in the middle of negotiations of an agreement to share the costs of the deployed troops for Trump has always maintained his reservation over the United States paying for the umbrella covering its allies across the world.

In a joint statement, the two Korean leaders also pledged to seek a peace treaty this year to formally declare the Korean War over.

Before Trump meets Kim, Washington is looking for North Korea to address another persistent source of tension between the adversaries: the detention of three Korean-Americans accused of anti-state of activities in the North.

That event did not slow the North's nuclear drive, but the situation looks more upbeat this time, Hong Min, analyst at the Korea Institute for National Unification, told AFP. Moon's office said news that the White House was considering drawing down troops was "not true at all".

"... Pyongyang time shall be reset into GMT+09:00 (30 minutes earlier than the present time) with the 135th degree of east longitude as prime meridian", the decree read.
