Korean news is reporting about the summit between President Trump and Kim Jong Un. Up until right before the summit took place, North Korean citizens weren't even aware the meeting was taking place beyond rumors.
Now the Korean Central News Agency is reporting about the agreement the two leaders made in regard to denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. So far the United States has not confirmed the reports, but certain individuals are already speculating against the terms North Korea is reporting.
As being reported by apnews.com
North Korea says President Donald Trump has agreed on a step-by-step denuclearization process by North Korea in return for reciprocal concessions from the United States during a summit with its leader Kim Jong Un.
The Korean Central News Agency said Wednesday the two leaders “shared recognition to the effect that it is important to abide by the principle of step-by-step and simultaneous action in achieving peace, stability and denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”
The reported agreement, if confirmed by the United States, could be considered as a concession by Trump because U.S. officials had called for the North to take swift disarmament measures before getting major outside concessions and benefits.
Some experts say a step-by-step denuclearization process is a ploy to win concessions while delaying disarmament.
Trump and Kim met in Singapore on Tuesday for their countries’ first-ever summit talks.
Critics of Trump before the summit took place, are critics of Trump afterwards as well. With few exceptions, those who were critical of Trump going into the meeting, are looking for ways to criticize the historic meeting that took place. If North Korea agrees to conditions to get rid of any nuclear weapons they possess, or the ability to manufacture those weapons, that should be considered a huge success. The fact that the meeting even took place is a success. This is probably the start of a long, drawn out process, that will take several negotiations.
What do you think? Was the meeting successful? Let us know in the comments.
