NEW YORK -- South Korean President Moon Jae-in urged the U.S. Tuesday to join with North Korea in an "end of war declaration," as Washington and Pyongyang prepare for a second summit between their leaders.

For the North to fulfill its promise to fully denuclearize, "the U.S. and the international community must end the hostile relations and also they need to provide security guarantees to the North Korean regime," Moon told an audience at the Council on Foreign Relations here. The president is in New York to deliver a speech at the United Nations General Assembly.
