US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has agreed to hold a second summit by the end of February. The possible summit between the two countries was announced after a 90-minute meeting between Trump and Kim Yong Chol, who is one of top Jong Un’s advisor, at the white house.
Sarah Sanders, White House spokesperson in a meeting to press said that Trump and Jong Un’s aide discussed about denuclearization and a second summit. Robert Palladino, US state department spokesman, also said the meeting of Kim Jong Un aide with Secretary of State Michael Pompeo went well.
However, no one from either the Trump administration or Kim Jong Un representatives declared the objective behind the possible summit. Trump-Kim had held their first summit in Singapore in June 2018, in which the North Korea agreed to halt their nuclear program and ultimately to denuclearise.
Both countries pledged to further their corporation towards world peace and signed an agreement. But according to many reports, only little progress has been made in that direction. Thus this meeting could be essential and will be looked closely to observe further developments.
