There is renewed hope of a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula and a restart of discussions that have stalled over the last few weeks since June's landmark summit between US President Donald Trump and the North Korean leader.

Trump has welcomed remarks by Kim Jong-un saying his faith in the US president remains unchanged.

Kim is meeting South Korean President Moon Jae-in later this month for the third time this year to discuss measures towards denuclearisation.

What's been blocking progress in nuclear diplomacy? Is the North Korean leader's offer of peace for real?
