North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un and the President of the United States signed a historic treaty where Kim Jong-Un promised to the complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula in return for security guarantees from the US President. A statement read, “President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea), and Chairman Kim Jong-un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.” After months of diplomatic tension on both sides, they finally signed the document after having a one-on-one meeting, with translators only.
We’re signing a very comprehensive document, and we’ve had a really great time together, a great relationship. while signing the document along with Kim in the presence of media at the end of the summit. We are starting the denuclearization process very quickly. – Donald Trump, president of the united States
Kim Jong-Un has said through a translator that the world will see a major change very quickly and that he is willing to leave the past behind. Both the leaders have promised to take care of a very dangerous problem which is threatening the world as of this moment. Trump has mentioned that he has developed a very special bond with the North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un and he admitted that the summit worked out far better than he had actually expected.
It should be mentioned that both Kim Jong-Un and Donald Trump are the first leaders of their respective countries to meet. The previous meetings were not possible because a lot of tension was going on on both sides. Both the sides obviously had to overcome a lot of obstacles but Kim Jong-un told the reporters through the translator, “We overcame all of them and we are here today.” Later, they held delegation-level talks. When asked to give up his nuclear weapons, Kim Jong-Un just smiled in response.
There will be challenges ahead but we will work with Trump. We overcame all kinds of skepticism and speculation about this summit and I believe that this is good for the peace. – Kim Jong-Un, North Korean leader
After the meeting, Trump joined Kim for a working lunch. The United States and North Korea characterized the summit as “an epochal event of great significance in overcoming decades of tensions and hostilities between the two countries and for the opening up of a new future.” A statement said that the two countries will hold follow-on negotiations which will be lead by the U.S Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and an unspecified high ranking North Korean official soon in the future. The U.S will ask nothing less than the complete denuclearization of the North Korean peninsula.
