North Korea readjusted its time zone to match South Korea’s and described the change as an early step towards making the longtime rivals “become one” following a landmark summit.

At 23:30 local time (15:00 GMT) on Friday (May 4) the country’s clocks moved forward 30 minutes to midnight.

The adjustment comes hours after US President Donald Trump announced that he had set a date and time for a key meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, though he did not say when or where that encounter would take place.

Trump is expected to meet with Kim in late May or sometime in June. The talks will mark the first such meeting between a US president and a North Korean leader in history.
