North Korea and America agree on comprehensive document after historic summit
Singapore, There is no doubt that the summit that brought together the President of the United States, Donald Trump, with his counterpart, North Korean President Kim Jong-un, in Singapore, is a historic summit whatever the outcome.
Despite the media hype about whether or not the Singapore Summit was held, it did not find its content when it held the same attention on its results as it found its details, location and date.
Signed a "comprehensive" joint document under which the United States pledged to provide North Korea with security guarantees and cooperation to bring peace and prosperity to the Korean Peninsula. While Kim Jong-un stressed his commitment to "the total elimination of nuclear weapons on the Korean Peninsula."
When asked about nuclear disarmament, Trump said: "We have started the process," adding that "it will start very quickly."
The document does not mention the US demand for "full, verifiable and irreversible nuclear disarmament" - a formula that means abandoning weapons and accepting inspections, but underscores a commitment to a vague language according to the text.
The Singapore summit, the first between a US president and a North Korean leader, saw a lengthy shake-up between officials in a scene that could not have been imagined a few months ago when they exchanged accusations and insults.
Kim said he had "folded the page of the past" after overcoming several "obstacles" ahead of the summit, which is a "good introduction to peace." Trump praised his "special relationship" with the North Korean leader, who rules his country with an iron fist like his father and grandfather.
Trump commented with a smile that the "wonderful meeting" was "better than was possible", which made "great progress" possible.
