US President Donald Trump Meets Kim Jong Un In North Korea
Panmumjom: US President Donald Trump stepped onto the North Korean soil in a historic first, as he met leader Kim Jong Un on Sunday.
Trump became the only sitting US president to set foot inside North Korea. He brought Kim back over the dividing line for a meeting where they agreed to start working-level talks on Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons.
Trump also said he had invited the young leader to the White House “anytime he wants to do it”.
“It’s a great day for the world and it’s an honor for me to be here,” Trump said. “A lot of great things are happening.”
As they sat down for discussions, Kim said their “handshake of peace” in a location that was “the symbol of the division of north and south” showed that “we are willing to put the past behind us.”
Their first summit took place in Singapore last year but produced a vaguely-worded pledge about denuclearisation. A second meeting in Vietnam in February intended to restart talks also broke up without an agreement.
