"It is our firm, unwavering position to open a new future for world peace and security," said Uriminzokkiri, a North Korean website.
"By faithfully implementing the joint statement that North Korea and the U.S. have announced, we will conscientiously fulfil our responsibility to address decades-long tensions and hostile relations, and open a new era of the North-U.S. cooperation," it added.
Another media outlet noted that North Korea-United States joint statement is the path to secure common interests of the peoples of the two countries, and peace, security and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula and in the world.
