ANKARA (AA) – North Korean leader will honor his pledge to denuclearize his country, reported Yonhap news agency Wednesday quoting South Korean president’s Fox news interview.

“Chairman Kim Jong-un is a young but very honest and frank person, and I am convinced he has a firm determination to denuclearize,” Moon Jae-in told Fox news channel in an interview late Tuesday.

According to Yonhap, Jae-in said: “I believe there are many people who do not believe North Korea will keep its promise because there have been many denuclearization agreements that failed, and therefore many people remain skeptical.”

“However, the latest denuclearization agreement is completely different from those of the past,” he added.

Recalling that the deal was reached between the U.S. president and the North Korean leader for the first time in history, Jae-in said the promise was made to the entire world, adding: “I believe the binding power [of such an agreement] is different.”
