The united states of America and North Korea held a historic summit in Singapore yesterday. This is the first of its kind between these 2 countries and what makes it even more remarkable is that the two countries have no diplomatic relations and are officially still at war.
The summit held yesterday and is still trending on social media. You may have seen several photos of Kim Jong Un & Donald Trump shaking hands or other friendly photos, but I know the question looming on your mind is “What really happened at the summit? What was achieved?”
While nothing seems to have been solidified and political analysts seem to think Donald Trump gave more than he got, here is what the White house had to say in a statement released on her website said:
“Convinced that the establishment of new U.S.–DPRK relations will contribute to the peace and prosperity of the Korean Peninsula and of the world, and recognizing that mutual confidence building can promote the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, President Trump and Chairman Kim Jong Un state the following:
- The United States and the DPRK commit to establish new U.S.–DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.
- The United States and the DPRK will join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.
- Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
- The United States and the DPRK commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.”
