SEOUL—North Korean leader Kim Jong Un told a visiting South Korean delegation that he was willing to hold talks with the U.S. about giving up nuclear weapons and normalizing relations with Washington, officials in Seoul said Tuesday.

During meetings in Pyongyang, Mr. Kim, who has conducted a series of missile launches over the past year, signaled a “clear intent to pursue denuclearization” if the security of North Korea and his regime are guaranteed, said Chung Eui-yong, South Korea’s national security adviser. He said the North pledged to halt weapons tests during any negotiations.
