Kim Jong Un, chairman of the Workers’ Party of Korea and chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, proposed resetting the standard time of the DPRK.
During his visit to the south side area for the historic Third North-South Summit Meeting and Talks, Kim Jong Un, Supreme Leader of the party, the state and the army of the DPRK, discussed with south Korean President Moon Jae In the matter of unifying the standard times of the north and the south.
Noting that it was a painful wrench to see two clocks indicating Pyongyang and Seoul times hanging on a wall of the summit venue, he proposed unifying the times of the north and the south before doing anything else.
It is not an abstract meaning that the north and the south become one but it is just a process in which the north and the south turn their different and separated things into the same and single ones, he said, expressing his resolution to unify the two times now existing on the Korean peninsula as the first practical step for national reconciliation and unity.
True to his suggestion that a relevant field of the DPRK should examine and approve this proposal, the Presidium of the DPRK Supreme People’s Assembly adopted a decree “On Resetting Pyongyang Time”.
