Denuclearization of North Korea; A Vague Promise with No Agreement



Donald Trump, US President has announced that North Korea is blowing its nuclear and missile test sites and its total denuclearization has occurred.

He said: “They’ve stopped the sending of missiles, including ballistic missiles. They’re destroying their engine site. They’re blowing it up. They’ve already blown up one of their big test sites, in fact it’s actually four of their big test sites.”

In Their first meeting, the leaders of the US and North Korea, Trump and Kim undertook a joint statement to work on the Korea’s denuclearization to establish peace and prosperity in the countries.

Although Trump had an elated tone from the Singapore summit, the critics have implied the vague phrases of the non-binding document, a “deal”.

The US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has warned about the risks that the peace efforts would face. He emphasized the US’s commitment toward North Korea’s complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization in his regional tour to South Korea, Japan and China.

Moreover, he mentioned this path a step toward peace after so many years, and added that Kim Jong-un would understand the urgency of our rush to do this.

So, Trump acknowledged: “Personalities can change. Maybe you end up with conflict. Maybe you don’t.” He believed that the strong relationship between him and Kim Jong-un could lead to a “tremendous success”.

For a long time, North Korea has asked US troops to leave the Korean peninsula as part of a nuclear deal, while the US has insisted that it’s not a bargaining chip issue as it has stationed about 28500 service members in South Korea.
