Trump – Kim historic summit begins
Although Trump and Kim appeared warm and pleasant before and after the meeting there was a specific question that was refused to be answered by the North Korean dictator.
According to the White House Press pool, Kim was repeatedly asked about denuclearization to which he had smilingly said nothing.
When asked if the North Korean dictator would give up his nuclear weapons, he and Trump simply walked away from the premises ignoring all questions that were fired at them.
America’s main goal for this summit was denuclearization of the North Korean peninsula.
The White House press pool further stated that when Mr Trump was asked how the meeting went, he responded: “Very very good!”
The two leaders had a one-to-one meeting, with translators, which ran for 38 minutes before attending a working lunch. According to reports, Kim is due to leave Singapore at 2 p.m. local time (06.00 GMT).
Reports stated that it is unclear what could be expected out of the summit as it revealed that the negotiators were far from coming into an agreement that would mark a significant shift.
The historic meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un commenced in the grounds of a luxury hotel located in the Sentosa island; Singapore.
In a show of goodwill, the two leaders shook hands in an extraordinary display of diplomacy between the two nations that have been at enemies for an extended period of time.
Speaking to the media briefly before beginning their talks aimed at denuclearizing the Korean peninsula, Trump said, “I feel really great. We’re going to have a great discussion and will be tremendously successful,” the US president said.
The reclusive Noth Korean leader meanwhile said that “It was not easy to get here….There were obstacles but we overcame them to be here,”
