Iran has welcomed Friday's historic pledge by the leaders of the two Koreas to work to denuclearize the Korean peninsula but said foreign powers should not be allowed to throw the rapprochement process off track with their intervention.  At the first summit between the Koreas in more than a decade, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in pledged to work for the "complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula," Reuters reported.
