Trump, Kim Hold Historic Meeting In Singapore
Trump, Kim Hold Historic Meeting In Singapore: Donald Trump and Kim Jong left a mark on the world, turning into the principal sitting US and North Korean pioneers to meet, shake hands and go ahead arranging table to end a decades-old atomic remain off.
After reaching the venue of their historic summit in Singapore, both the leaders Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump briefly appeared before the world media, shaking hands for giving the message to narrow differences.
It is a historic meeting perhaps comparable to president Richard Nixon´s 1972 visit to China, or Ronald Reagan´s summit 1986 with Mikhail Gorbachev in Reykjavik.
It is potentially legacy-defining as long as they can disprove critics´ fears that the meeting will be more about drama than detail.
The North has promised to give up its weapons in the past, while a long history of previous agreements have ultimately foundered. “If there is no statement of intentions to move toward a peace treaty, if there´s no statement from the North Korean side on denuclearization, we´re going to find ourselves very quickly in a very hollow summit,” said Ryan Hass of the Brookings Institution.
And the totalitarian regime has made rapid progress towards marrying nuclear and missile technology that would put Los Angeles, New York and Washington within striking distance of a nuclear holocaust.
The United States says that is unacceptable and will be dealt with, one way or another. But for North Korea the mere fact of the talks is a hugely symbolic advance.
The comprehensive talks sought ways to end a nuclear standoff. While the officials of the two sides held last-minute talks to lay the groundwork for the summit of the old foes, an event almost unthinkable just months ago, when they were exchanging insults and threats that raised fears of war.
In a series of tweets early Tuesday morning Singapore time, Trump indicated that “We will all know soon whether or not a real deal, unlike those of the past, can happen,” he tweeted — before hitting out in a subsequent post at “haters & losers” who see the summit itself as a risky up-front concession to Kim.
Washington and Pyongyang are still technically at war, even if the mortars, carbines and gunships of the bloody 1950s conflict have long since fallen silent.
