North Korea decides to sync time zone with South Korea

Ammon News - AMMONNEWS - North Korean state television announced on Monday that the North's parliament has adopted a decree to sync its time zone with South Korea.

The change will be made on Saturday, it reported.

The North's state news agency said the parliamentary move was made at the proposal of Kim, who found it was "a painful wrench to see two clocks indicating Pyongyang and Seoul times hanging on a wall of the summit venue."

The office of South Korean President Moon Jae-In said on Sunday that Kim made similar remarks to Moon during the summit.

In 2015 the North set its clock by 30 minutes behind South Korea and Japan, saying the measure was aimed at rooting out the legacy of Tokyo's 1910-45 colonial rule of the Korean Peninsula.
