South Korean President Moon Jae-in had a rather successful summit, the third one this year, with North Korean Leader Kim Jong-Un. Speaking at a joint news conference in Pyongyang after the meeting, hey pledged to turn Korean peninsula into “land of peace without nuclear weapons and nuclear threats” and take “prompt steps” toward the goal.
Kim added that “the world is going to see how this divided nation is going to bring about a new future on its own”. Meanwhile, Moon said “the era of no war has started,” and “today the North and South decided to remove all threats that can cause war from the entire Korean peninsula.”
According to Moon, Kim also “expressed its readiness” on permanent dismantlement of its main nuclear facilities in Yongbyon. However, correspondingly measures have to be taken by the US.
Trump, as cheerleader on the sideline, tweeted “Kim Jong Un has agreed to allow Nuclear inspections, subject to final negotiations, and to permanently dismantle a test site and launch pad in the presence of international experts. In the meantime there will be no Rocket or Nuclear testing.” But again, there was no well deserved credit given to Moon.
