Trump and Kim meet after months of threats and insults

Trump and Kim meet after months of threats and insults

"Unfortunately, we do not know if Kim has made a strategic decision to denuclearise and it is unclear if further negotiations will lead to the end goal of denuclearisation", said Anthony Ruggiero, senior fellow at Washington's Foundation for Defense of Democracies think tank.

"I think without the rhetoric we wouldn't have been here".

It was signed by Trump and Kim shortly after they met privately and with their respective administrations, with the paperwork stipulating that Kim has 'reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula'. North Korea first started operating a small reactor tailored for making weapons-grade plutonium in 1986.

Following the talks, Second Deputy Chief of the Presidential National Security Office Nam Gwan-pyo said it was "significant" that the two leaders had learned to trust each other as partners to resolve issues through dialogue.

He made the comments when asked if the absence of CVID (complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization) from a post-summit joint statement showed that the two sides had used Tuesday's meeting as a foundation to improve trust. The leaders also agreed for the U.S.to provide North Korea regime security. Trump described the destruction of the site as a "big thing".

"It's a process and it's really moving rapidly", he added.

Despite a year-long stand-off over Seoul's deployment of a USA anti-missile shield, China and the South found themselves on the same side last year after Trump threatened the North with "fire and fury" when it tested missiles that Pyongyang said could reach the United States mainland.

Geng said Beijing would continue to fulfil its worldwide obligations and play a constructive role on the Korean peninsula.

"I'm very optimistic that we will have a successful outcome from our meetings tomorrow", he said.

"I was a little concerned that the president would give away our issue with regard to military exercises without getting something in return".

The meeting on Tuesday between the U.S. president and North Korea's leader, unthinkable until recent months and uncertain until June 1, is a high-stakes and politically risky venture into summit diplomacy by two unpredictable personalities who have famously exchanged personal insults and threats of war.

"The U.N. Security Council resolutions that have been passed say that if North Korea respects and acts in accordance with the resolutions, then sanction measures can be adjusted, including to pause or remove the relevant sanctions", Geng told a daily news briefing.

So, this is just the beginning of what is going to be a long and complicated road with many detours and bumps, no doubt and we will see what happens as it is going forward.
