Donald Trump, Kin Jong un in Singapore for ‘historic summit’

(Sarzameen News)- In a rare development in world’s politics, US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have reached Singapore to sit together for the first time in a bid to establish a new relationship that could have positive global ramifications.

The two leaders touched down the venue for the much-anticipated summit on Sunday within hours of each other. They will meet at 9am in Sentosa on Tuesday to discuss the issues and find a mutually acceptable way out.

The two leaders are expected to address the complete denuclearisation of the peninsula and possibly made an announcement ending the nearly seven-decade-long Korean War, international media reported.

Trump, on his trip to the island country, expressed positive feeling in a tweet. He wrote, Great to be in Singapore, excitement in the air!

Expressing views of the unlikely geopolitical role, Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said, From our point of view, it’s important that the meeting takes place, and that the meeting sets developments on a new trajectory – one that will be conducive to the security and stability of the region.

North Korea’s state media said on Monday that the two leaders will discuss a permanent and durable peace-keeping mechanism on the Korean peninsula, denuclearisation and other issues.

The editorial in Rodong Sinmun confirmed that Kim had travelled to Singapore to meet Trump, saying, we will establish a new relationship to meet the changing demands of the new era.

Even if a country had a hostile relationship with us in the past, our attitude is that if this nation respects our autonomy… we shall seek normalisation through dialogue, it reads.
