Trump and Kim signed the agreement

What is it about?

President of the United States Donald Trump and leader of the DPRK Kim Jong-un following the historic summit in Singapore signed a declaration – and demonstrated the text of the agreement to journalists.
The Declaration has four main points:
The United States and the DPRK are committed to establishing relations between countries in accordance with the desire of the peoples of these states to achieve peace and prosperity.
The United States and the DPRK will jointly make efforts to establish a stable and lasting state of peace in the Korean peninsula.
The DPRK reaffirms the commitment of the Panmunjom Declaration signed on April 27, 2018 and the complete liberation of the Korean peninsula from nuclear weapons.
The United States and the DPRK are committed to returning the remains of prisoners of war and missing persons, including the return of already identified remains.
Also, the United States, in response to Pyongyang’s agreement to give up its nuclear program, promises personal security guarantees to Kim Jong-un.
“President Trump promised to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong-un confirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula,” the joint statement said after the meeting of the two leaders.
The document does not contain specific details of how North Korea will get rid of nuclear weapons. The statement also does not mention the sanctions imposed on the DPRK.
There are no promises in it about the signing of a peace treaty between North and South Korea. The countries participating in the Korean War of 1950-53, in which millions of people died, are formally still in a state of truce.
Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un are pleased with the meeting.
President of the United States said that the meeting was extremely important and quite rich. Trump said that he was going to invite Kim to the White House soon.
Kim Jong-un, during the signing of the joint declaration, said that the meeting with Trump was historical, and also noted that he wanted to leave the past behind. Kim thanked Trump for the meeting.
The Chinese Foreign Ministry issued a statement following the meeting, in which the meeting is called an event that creates a new history.
A representative of the Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday that in connection with the signing of the agreement, the issue of easing sanctions against North Korea could be considered.
North Korea’s television covered Kim Jong-un’s visit to Singapore, but so far it has not reported on the outcome of the talks with Trump.
“The summit is a victory for the political prisoners of the DPRK”.
After the meeting with Kim Jong Un, the US president gave a press conference, in which he answered the journalists’ questions in detail and shared his opinion on the talks with the leader of the DPRK.
According to Trump, he did not have time to delve into the details and draw up a more detailed declaration on the outcome of the talks. That is why it does not contain details on how the nuclear disarmament of the DPRK will pass.
That the agreement signed in Singapore will not remain empty word.
The US president confirmed that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor John Bolton will continue work on specifying the signed agreement, and then it becomes clear how Kim Jong-un is really committed to these promises.
According to Trump, he hopes that the liberation of the Korean peninsula from nuclear weapons will happen as quickly as possible “scientifically and technically”.
Nevertheless, Trump did not name any deadlines and refused to give any assurances that the agreement would certainly be implemented. He, however, noticed that as a person with extensive experience of making deals, he felt that Kim Jong-un really wants to make a deal with the United States.
Trump said that the US are going to abandon the “war games”, that is, joint large-scale exercises with South Korea, but will not reduce the military contingent in the region.
Responding to a question about political prisoners in North Korea prisons, Trump named them one of the winners after the talks.
He noted that there is still no question of lifting sanctions against the DPRK – this will be done only after North Korea presents evidence of nuclear disarmament.
Also, the US president said that he advised Kim Jong Un to develop a tourist business in the DPRK. “I saw great beaches [on rollers with military exercises of North Korea], I told them that it is possible to build the best hotels in the world,” Trump said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin highly appreciated the meeting between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and US President Donald Trump. This is reported by RIA Novosti on Thursday, June 14.
“Thanks to the meeting between Trump and Kim Jong-un, there were prospects for a peaceful settlement of the situation with the DPRK through political and diplomatic means. The meeting between Kim Jong Un and Trump reduces the general level of tension around the Korean peninsula, “the Russian leader said at a meeting with the chairman of the presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly of the DPRK.
June 12, the US president and leader North Korea held the first bilateral summit and signed a document on its results. The American leader called him “important, comprehensive and detailed,” and also able to solve “a big and dangerous problem”. In turn, Kim Jong-un thanked Trump for the historic meeting and said that the parties decided to “leave the past behind”. According to him, now “the world will see great changes.” Later, the American president wrote on his page in the social network that North Korea no longer remains a nuclear threat. The first US summit in North Korea was held at the Capella hotel on the resort island of former pirate island Sentosa in Singapore. Dialogue began with the handshake of the leaders of countries formally at war since 1953.
