The European Union on Saturday hailed North Korea's decision to halt nuclear tests and intercontinental missile launches as "a positive, long sought-after step".

The announcement by Pyongyang's leader Kim Jong Un shows "full respect for its international obligations and all relevant UN Security Council resolutions," EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said in a statement.

Kim's declaration comes less than a week before he meets South Korean President Moon Jae-in for a summit in the Demilitarised Zone that divides the peninsula, ahead of an eagerly-awaited encounter with US President Donald Trump.

"The European Union looks forward to the upcoming Summit meetings between the President of the Republic of Korea, Moon Jae-in and the leader of the DPRK; and the President of the United States, Donald Trump, and the leader of the DPRK. We hope that these high-level initiatives can continue to build confidence and bring about additional, concrete and positive outcomes," Mogherini said.

"The EU will continue its work to support a negotiated solution in all possible ways," she said.
