Trump, Kim ink document on denuclearisation, security

(China Daily) -- US President Donald Trump and Democratic People’s Republic of Korea leader Kim Jong-un signed a document after their historic summit covering both the complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula and US security guarantees to the DPRK.
“President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK and Chairman Kim Jong-un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula,” read a joint statement issued after the summit held in the Capella hotel in Singapore.

US President Donald Trump and DPRK leader Kim Jong-un sign documents that acknowledge the progress of the talks and pledge to keep momentum going, after their summit at the Capella Hotel on Sentosa island in Singapore.

The document stated the US and DPRK have committed to establishing new relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.
The US and the DPRK will join efforts to build a lasting and stable peace regime on the Korean Peninsula, according to the document.
The two sides also reaffirmed the Panmunjom Declaration on April 27, where the DPRK committed to work toward complete denuclearisation of the peninsula.
According to the document, the two sides have also committed to recovering POW/MIA remains, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified.
Trump told the press that the summit went better than anybody had predicted, adding that the US relations with DPRK will be very different and the situation on the Korean Peninsula will be very different.
“Both sides will be very impressed with the results,” Trump said.
Kim, speaking Korean, said that “we have a historic meeting, and decide to leave the past behind,” adding “the world will see a major change”.
Asked if the denuclearisation will start, Trump said “we will start that process very, quickly, very very quickly.”
The two leaders started their historic summit on Tuesday morning at the Capella hotel in Sentosa on an optimistic note.
China hopes the meeting between Washington and Pyongyang will result in substantive steps toward denuclearisation and the establishment of a peace mechanism on the Korean Peninsula, State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Tuesday.
It is important and positive for the top leaders of the two countries to sit down and conduct equal talks , which is creating a new history, Wang said. China welcomes and supports the meeting and hopes the two leaders will avoid disruptions, build mutual trust and overcome difficulties, he said.
China is willing to see all relevant parties make efforts toward denuclearisation and the establishment of a peace mechanism on the peninsula, he said, adding that China will continue to play a constructive role in this regard.
Right after they sat down in the Capella hotel for the one-on-one session, Trump said the summit will be a tremendous success, adding “we will have a terrific relationship, no doubt”.
“The way to come to here was not easy,” Kim said. “The old prejudices and practices worked as obstacles on our way forward but we overcame all of them and we are here today.”
Trump replied, “That’s great.”
