Kim Committed to Denuclearize North Korea, Trump Says

WASHINGTON – United States President Donald Trump said on Thursday that North Korean leader Kim Jong-un expressed his willingness to denuclearize the Korean peninsula during the president’s first term.

“Just moments ago they put on that he said very strongly that we want to denuclearize North Korea during President Trump’s tenure,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Billings, Montana.

“I was just told Kim Jong-un said terrific things about me,” Trump said just before going on to the stage.

“I respect him, and he respects me. I think something is going to happen,” added the president, who highlighted his successful attempt in negotiating the release of three US citizens imprisoned in North Korea in May.

Earlier on Thursday, Trump also posted a message on his Twitter account about the praise he received from the North Korean leader.

“Kim Jong Un of North Korea proclaims ‘unwavering faith in President Trump’. Thank you to Chairman Kim. We will get it done together!” Trump tweeted.

Kim and Trump agreed at their historic summit in June to work towards the denuclearization of the peninsula, but their dialog has faltered in recent weeks due to their different stances on how to carry out the process.

Pyongyang has demanded progress in the signing of a peace treaty to definitively end the inter-Korean conflict in exchange for concrete nuclear-dismantling measures.
