    Francis told faithful in St. Peter's Square today that he is accompanying "with prayer the positive result" of Friday's summit and praised the leaders' aim to "achieve a path of sincere dialogue for a Korean Peninsula free of nuclear arms."

    He prayed that hopes for a peaceful future "won't be disappointed" and that the collaboration can continue for the benefit "of the beloved Korean people and for the entire world."

    Today, South Korea's presidential office said North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has vowed to shut down the country's nuclear test site in May. But there has been widespread scepticism about whether the North will fully surrender its nuclear weapons.
