UPDATE 2: The US is going to halt military drills with South Korea while negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang continue.

UPDATE: Trump says Kim has agreed to visit the White House.

“At a certain time I will [travel to Pyongyang]. That will be a day I very much look forward to. I also will be inviting chairman Kim at the appropriate time to the White House. He has accepted… we want to go a little bit further down the road,” he said.

Trump added that the North Korean leader has expressed “unwavering commitment” to complete denuclearization. However, the anti-North sanctions will “remain in effect” at least for now.

    • Promitheas Apollonious

      You think it will, that be bending over to the amerkans.

    • jako

      Why strange when it is only logical outcome?
      They had agreed framework for future discussions.
      Kim wants guarantees for him and N. Korea and Trump wants all nukes.
      Now they must start to see more into details. How, when,etc….
      If it works it is going to be a process that will take time…

      It is nothing, a lot of luke warm air and rhetoric, but it is a start I suppose.

      • Daniel Castro

        Yep, just smoke and mirrors.

        If Kim gives up his nuke I will send him a certificate of absolute retardation, muricans must leave ROK first, nukes go later. And all murican ships should keep a very safe distance.

        • You can call me Al

        • Wise Gandalf

      1. The United States and North Korea will be committed to establishing new relations

        sounds good, if is kept, not at the expense of NK.

    • Wise Gandalf

      The text is similar what Gorbachev signed.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        oh you seen it?

        • Wise Gandalf

          Yes. Both were published.

  • RichardD

    Great, I hope that it works.

  • Icarus Tanović

    Just don’t give up Nukes! Trump is openly bullying countries around the World. Remember what happened USSR, afterwards when Reagan said ‘Tear down this wall, Mr Gorbachev’. Remember Iraq, remember Libya, Syria, Yemen. Only Vietnam managed to defeat all American ‘maximum pressures’ and open War.
    Just days before this this walking mental disorder teared Iranian ‘Nuclera deal’ and impose more sanctions.
    What’s next? Open War against Iran?
    If so, it will be WWIII. Enough of you!
    Play with fire, and you’ll get burned.

    Isolated Trump leaves early as G7 summit fails to bridge divide | Al Jazeera English.
    Zionist Trump and Israel have made America Isolated by their wrong policies. American dollar is losing its value. Second many countries have already begun dedollarization in their trades.

    Its very good that Putin did not participate in G7 summit. Now G7 summit has no value. Its very good that nobody is agree with Trump.

    The 1992 statement:

    “Joint Declaration of the Denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula
    Bureau of Arms Control
    Washington, DC

    Signed January 20, 1992
    Entered into force February 19, 1992
    The South and the North,

    Desiring to eliminate the danger of nuclear war through denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, and thus to create an environment and conditions favorable for peace and peaceful unification of our country and contribute to peace and security in Asia and the world,

    Declare as follows;

    1. The South and the North shall not test, manufacture, produce, receive, possess, store, deploy or use nuclear weapons.

    2. The South and the North shall use nuclear energy solely for peaceful purposes.

    3. The South and the North shall not possess nuclear reprocessing and uranium enrichment facilities.

    4. The South and the North, in order to verify the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, shall conduct inspection of the objects selected by the other side and agreed upon between the two sides, in accordance with procedures and methods to be determined by the South-North Joint Nuclear Control Commission.

    5. The South and the North, in order to implement this joint declaration, shall establish and operate a South-North joint Nuclear Control Commission within one (1) month of the effectuation of this joint declaration.

    These types of denuclearization statements have been in effect for over 25 years. So far there hasn’t been any mutually agreed upon denuclearization, and I’m skeptical that we’ll see any in the near future. Hopefully the denuclearization issue will be sidelined and a peace agreement and normalization of relations between the north and south will be facilitated.

  • Alexis Goldwasser

    This idiot thinks that by giving up his nukes america will allow let him have his way.

    Its just the first step on the road to an american occupied north korea. Trump is playing the man for a fool

    • TrumanSparks

      Don’t be silly. There will never be an American invasion of N.Korea.

      This isn’t 1950. We no longer possess the military power to even attempt it. Both sides know it.

      And Donald J Trump does not possess the ability to play anyone for a fool. If anyone gets played for a fool, it won’t be Kim.

    ANY AGREEMENT made with ZIONIST Jewish -CONTROLLED America and Israel is NOT worth the paper it is printed on:

    From the TALMUD: Baba Kamma 113a.” Jews may use lies (“subterfuges”) to circumvent a
    Gentile.”

    Gentiles are anyone who is NOT a Jew
