Thailand on Friday welcomed the North-South summit of the Korean leaders and said it hoped for the end of nuclear weapons on the peninsula.
The country welcomed the historic meeting and was ready to contribute efforts to help the Koreans realise their goals, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement released after the meeting.
"Thailand hopes that the outcomes of this summit and further efforts, particularly the planned meeting between the president of the United States and the leader of the DPRK (North Korea) in the near future, will pave the way for the eventual realisation of the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula," it said.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in and his northern counterpart, Kim Jong-un, agreed to work for the "complete denuclearisation" of the penninsula during their talks in Panmumjom on the border of the two countries on Friday.
It was the first meeting of the two leaders of the two countries in 11 years. Mr Kim was the first North Korean leader ever to set foot on South Korean soil.
