U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday following a historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, said that the Korean conflict “will soon end.”
At the end of their meeting, the ever first between sitting leaders of the two nations, Trump and Kim signed an agreement to work toward complete denuclearization and a lasting “peace regime” on the Korean Peninsula.
The document, which Trump deemed “very comprehensive,” says the two sides commit to hold follow-up negotiations and to cooperate to develop bilateral relations.
Asked about what the agreement meant for North Korea’s denuclearization, Trump said “we’re starting that process very quickly — very, very quickly.”
A photo of the document Trump signed revealed that the leaders agreed on these four points:
1. 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.
2. The United States and the DPRK will join their efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula.
3. Reaffirming the April 27, 2018 Panmunjom Declaration, the DPRK commits to work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
4. The United States and the DPRK commit to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.
