The leaders of the rival Koreas took to the road for the final day of their summit Thursday, standing on the peak of a beautiful volcano considered sacred in the North and a centrepiece of propaganda used to legitimize the Kim family’s rule, their hands clasped and raised in a pose of triumph.

Their trip to the mountain on the North Korean-Chinese border and the striking photo-op that will resonate in both Koreas followed a day of wide-ranging agreements they trumpeted as a major step toward peace.

However, their premier accord on the issue that most worries the world — the North’s pursuit of nuclear-tipped missiles that can accurately strike the U.S. mainland — contained a big condition: Kim Jong-un stated that he would permanently dismantle North Korea’s main nuclear facility only if the United States takes unspecified corresponding measures.
