No joint declaration or agreements were made after the US and North Korea heads' what they call historical meeting.


Iran Press/Asia: US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un agreed Sunday to resume denuclearization talks that have been stalled since the collapse of their second summit in Hanoi, Korea Times reported.

Trump, who had made the offer of a meeting with a tweet on Saturday, hasn’t met Kim Jong Un since February's nuclear summit when talks abruptly broke down. Pyongyang has expressed its frustration in recent months, though the two leaders have maintained their ties through letter exchanges and in public comments.

According to a Wall Street Journal report, the two sides are still deeply divided over how, and when, Pyongyang will give up its nuclear arsenal.

Talking to Kim, Trump claimed that he was unhappy to see continued economic sanctions on North Korea.

US special representative for North Korea Stephen Biegun had a five-minute talk with North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Choe Sun-hui while the Trump-Kim meeting was taking place.

At the demilitarised zone that divides the two Koreas (DMZ), President Moon Jae-in praised the US president's decision to meet with Kim saying, "Today's meeting will definitely accelerate efforts for peace on the Korean Peninsula as well as denuclearization," according to press pool reports. 

No joint declaration or agreements were made, but Trump and President Moon indicated that sanctions could be relaxed if the nuclear disarmament dialogue 'goes well.
