In a historic summit in Singapore, North Korea’s Kim Jong Un met US President Donald Trump. This marked the first meeting between a US President and North Korean leader. Donald Trump earlier labeled the highly anticipated talks as a “one-time shot” at peace.
The meeting marks a dramatic shift in relations between the two nuclear-armed countries, who last year traded insults and threats of war.
Washington hopes the summit will pave way for denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. However, both nations have sought to lower expectations for an immediate breakthrough. Donald Trump has described the summit as the first step in what could be a lengthy process, dangling the possibility of inviting the North Korean leader to the United States for a second meeting.
