"This is good news. But it has to be ensured that the principle of denuclearization, announced after this summit, is really irreversible and can be verified," Le Drian said.
The French foreign minister added that the agreement was a clear sign of progress, but noted that Pyongyang had expressed willingness to denuclearize in the past, but there were no results.
On Tuesday, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met US President Donald Trump. In the resulting agreement, North Korea confirmed its commitment to the denuclearization of the peninsula, while the United States promised to provide security guarantees.
