The historic summit between the President Donald Trump and North Korea leader Kim Jong-un will take place in Singapore tomorrow. The diplomats from the two sides are engaged in hectic parleys behind closed doors to narrow their differences. The two sides made progress in their talks ahead of a much-publicised summit. US President Trump has expressed hoped that a nice outcome could be reached from, what he said, a very interesting meeting with Kim tomorrow.
The US also offered a unique security guarantees to North Korea if it accepts a complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said that the preparatory talks were moving quite rapidly and he expected them to reach what he called a logical conclusion even earlier than the US anticipated. He said the US is willing to offer North Korea “unique” security guarantees that are fundamentally different from before to achieve denuclearisation. However, sanctions on North Korea will remain until that has been achieved.
Both Trump and Kim separately met Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and thanked him for hosting the summit as if it was their own family affair. Kim said if the summit produces positive outcomes, then the Singaporean government’s effort will be recorded in history forever.
