Kim Commits to Denuclearization at Summit with Trump

June 12th 2018

Kim Jong-un affirmed an 'unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula' in a signed document on Tuesday, President Donald Trump says.

'We're prepared to start a new history, and we're ready to write a new chapter between our two nations,' Trump said at a news conference.

The president promised 'security guarantees' for North Korea, as the two leaders met for the first time during a high-stakes Singapore summit.

The U.S. president hailed a newly forged 'special bond' with Kim following a day of historic talks, praised the dictator as a 'skilled' negotiator and said he would 'absolutely' invite him to the White House in the future. Kim said it was time to 'leave the past behind' and embark on a new era of relations with America while promising that the world will see a 'major change.'

The two men signed a joint statement at the Capella resort. The U.S. did not immediately release the document, but news photographers caught sight of the text when Trump flashed a copy to the press.

The agreement reaffirms an earlier declaration signed between North and South Korea, and commits the North to 'work towards the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.'

Another point commits the U.S. and North Korea 'to establish new U.S.-DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.'

An additional point committed the nations to 'join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.'

The U.S. president also affirmed he would 'absolutely' be willing to host Kim at the White House after today's conversations. telling a room full of journalists representing American and North Korean outlets: 'This is going to lead to more and more and more and it’s an honor to be with you a very great honor.'

'We'll meet again. We'll meet many times,' he stated.

Trump earlier said as the summit commenced that it was 'an honor' to be with Kim and open a direct line of communication that he expects to blossom into 'a terrific relationship' with the longtime U.S. antagonist.

He told journalists later, after a working lunch, that he had a 'really fantastic meeting' with Kim that he believes was 'really, very positive.'

'I think, better than anybody could have expected, top of the line, really good. We're going right now for a signing,' he said.

Talks were apparently going so well Tuesday afternoon that Trump showed Kim his limo, opening a door so he could inspect the car that travels everywhere with the U.S. president and flies in the belly of Air Force One when he's abroad.
