The allies of both these nations had fought each other, way back in the 1950-53 Korean War.
"It's a great day for the world and it's an honour for me to be here,” Trump said. He also added that lots of great things are happening currently.
Further, he also said that this meeting comes after a long time as they both haven’t seen each other since Vietnam.
The latest meeting comes amid the talks over the issues of ‘Nuclear’ potential of North Korea.
The meeting also comes one year after the Summit in Singapore, and most of the times there was only a minimal amount of interaction between them, until now.
John Delury, an East Asia scholar, and currently from Yonsei University in Seoul, said that if both Trump and Kim can initiate for an interim agreement, then that it will be great.
"It's not just about denuclearisation and it's not all about a deal -- important as those are. If Trump and Kim meet & can announce some kind of interim agreement, that’s great. If they meet and don't, that's ok too. If in the end they don't meet, it's good that Trump offered to,” he said.
It will be interesting to see what kind of implications this meeting has in the future, for both the United States and North Korea.
Diplomacy can help in finding the solutions to most of the problems, but how it plays out in this context, will be really crucial for the entire world.Share on Twitter Share on Facebook
