South Korea’s Foreign Minister has suggested that some credit ought to be given to US President Donald Trump or bringing North Korea’s supreme leader Kim Jong-un to the negotiation table as the two Koreas have held an historic summit in which a plan for ‘complete denuclearisation’ has been agreed.
Talking to CNN, Kang Kyung-wha (pictured below) said the following:
‘Clearly, credit goes to President Trump. He’s been determined to come to grips with this from day one.’
This follows the suggested by some, including broadcaster Piers Morgan, that President Trump should receive a Nobel Prize for helping to push for ‘(Korean) Peace in our time’.
Kim Jong-un became the first North Korean leader to cross the DMZ and step foot in South Korea since the end of the Korean War in 1953 early on Friday. Meeting, the two stepped over both sides of the border and later planted a tree alongside a monument engraved with the words ‘planting peace and prosperity’.
Commenting on the summit, President Trump said:
‘After a furious year of missile launches and Nuclear testing, a historic meeting between North and South Korea is now taking place. Good things are happening, but only time will tell!’
