US-DPRK Summit 2019: DPRK leader lauds conversation with US President

Democratic People’s Republic of Korea leader Kim Jong-un said he had an interesting conversation with US President Donald Trump which came before their dinner at Sofitel Legend Metropole Hanoi hotel on February 27.

Earlier, the leader lauded the US President for having a brave decision to initiate the US-DPRK summit, adding that he has striven and been patient more than ever to make the summit happen.

Kim expressed his wish for a declaration ending the Korean War to be issued and said that in exchange for this, he will shut down the Yongbyon nuclear complex.

According to experts, a declaration on ending the war will be the first significant step towards replacing the war-ending agreement with a peace agreement.

For his part, President Trump said a press conference will be held on February 28 following their summit, a day which he said will be very busy with discussions on a number of issues.

Following their first summit in June 2018 in Singapore, the second is expected to devise specific measures towards denuclearisation, thus maintaining everlasting peace on the Korean Peninsula and the region.
