The historic meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un yielded a peace document that included the denuclearization of North Korea. While on the surface, the broad strokes of the document sound appealing, skepticism still remains as to the lack of details on how the denuclearization process will occur.
Nonetheless, President Trump is quick to praise the results of the meeting.
“I think he liked me and I like him,” Trump told Voice of America’s Greta Van Susteren in an interview. “And I understand the past and, you know, nobody has to tell me, he’s a rough guy. He has to be a rough guy or he has been a rough person. But we got along very well. He’s smart, loves his people, he loves his country. He wants a lot of good things and that’s why he’s doing this.”
Four Points of Peace Document
The peace document itself reveals an agreement established between the United States and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea that revolves around 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.
