Kirsters Baish| President Donald Trump met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un on Tuesday during the Singapore Summit, hoping to make a breakthrough. The left are going to be bitter about this one. Trump didn’t just make a breakthrough, he got Kim Jong Un to sign a document, agreeing to working on the “complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.” This concession is truly one for the history books.
It all came about after President Trump and Kim Jong Un spent the day in multiple meetings together. A reporter asked President Trump if the North Korean dictator had agreed to denuclearize. He answered, “We are starting that process very quickly.”
POTUS did not call the document a “treaty” or an “agreement,” as pointed out by Fox News.
During a press conference, President Trump explained that he will be putting a stop to United States/South Korea joint military exercises. He also explained that Kim Jong Un is going to be destroying a “major” missile testing site, however no further details were given.
The document says that the United States will be providing “security guarantees” to Pyongyang.
Fox News reports:
It’s unclear exactly what Trump has promised Kim in terms of security. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo declined to say Monday whether guarantees might include withdrawing U.S. troops from the Korean Peninsula.
Col. Chad G. Carroll, U.S. Forces Korea spokesman, said there has been no updated guidance on execution or “cessation of training exercises.”
“We will continue with our current military posture until we receive updated guidance from the Department of Defense and/or Indo-Pacific Command,” Carroll said.
President Trump seemed in high hopes during a press conference following the North Korean dictator’s departure from the island. He explained to the press that the remains of United States POWs, who during the Korean War were dubbed missing in action, will be returned to the U.S.
President Trump explained that he had requested Kim to return the remains. He explained to the press, “and we got it.”
President Trump stated that he has had “countless calls” from the families of these prisoners of war, who were never returned, asking for the remains after all these years.
One reporter questioned President Trump if he would consider inviting the North Korean dictator to Washington, to which President Trump stated “Absolutely I would.”
When reporters asked Trump if anything surprised him about Kim Jong Un during their meetings on Tuesday, he explained that he had a “great personality” and is “very smart. Good combination.”
Fox News reports that Kim Jong Un was sitting by President Trump during a prior press conference, and through a translator he explained, “We had a historic meeting and decided to leave the past behind and we are about to sign a historic document.”
Trump explained that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton would both be a part of talks in the future. He also stated that the signed document says that North Korea will be responsible for “follow-up negotiations.” These negotiations will be held by Pompeo and “a relevant high-level DPRK official” at the “earliest possible date.”
Mike Pompeo stated, “We are hopeful this summit will help set the conditions for future productive talks.”
