US, N Korea pledge to move towards denuclearisation of Korean Peninsula


The United States today decided to provide security guarantees to North Korea, in exchange of Pyongyang's firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.

This is according to the joint document which was signed by US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un following their historic maiden talks at Singapore's Sentosa island.

The document also said, both nations commit to establishing new relations in accordance with the desire of the people of the two countries for peace and prosperity.

The statement said US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and North Korean officials would hold follow-up negotiations at the earliest.

The joint statement added the two sides had agreed to recover the remaining prisoners of war and of those missing in action and repatriating them.

Earlier, addressing a press conference after the talks, US president Donald Trump said, he and Kim have developed a very special bond. He said, the talks went better than anybody could have expected.

Kim said, they have decided to leave the past behind, and the world will see a major change.

Earlier, US President expressed hope that the summit would be tremendously successful. Kim said, there were a number of obstacles to the meeting and they overcame all of them.

Later, Donald Trump again addressed a press conference, in which he said, his talks with Kim were honest, direct and productive. The US President asserted that there will be a complete denuclearisation, and it will be verified.

On a question about troops in South Korea, Trump said, he is not reducing military capabilities, but will stop its military exercises with South Korea which routinely infuriate Pyonyang. He expressed hope that the Korean conflict will end soon.

The US President asserted that North Korea has already started destroying a missile engine testing site, and US is prepared to starting a new history with North Korea.
