North Korea resets clocks to match the time in South Korea



North Korea will move its clocks half an hour forward to match the time in South Korea.
 
Kim Jong Un proposed the change during his historic visit across the border last week, the North's state news agency has said.


It is a symbolic step on the road to peace between the two nations, which have been on different times since 2015, when the North's regime was changed to "Pyongyang Time" in what was touted as a break from imperialism.


Kim told South Korean President Moon Jae-in that "it was a painful wrench to see two clocks indicating Pyongyang and Seoul times hanging on a wall" during their summit in the border village of Panmunjom, according to the KCNA agency.


He then added the move is part of a "process" in which they will "turn their different and separate things into the same and single ones".
