Pushing for Peace   

U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un concluded an extraordinary summit in Singapore on June 12, signing a document in which Trump pledged "security guarantees" to the North, and Kim repeated his commitment to "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula."

The meeting was the first between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader. Throughout the summit, which could chart the course for peace or build the nuclear threat, both leaders expressed optimism. Kim called the summit a "good prelude for peace," and Trump said, "We will get it taken care of."

At the signing ceremony, Trump said he expected to "meet many times" with Kim in the future. Responding to questions, he said that he would "absolutely" invite Kim to the White House.

The joint statement, however, did not include an agreement to take steps toward ending the nuclear and missile programs and the technical state of war between the U.S. and North Korea.

Trump said after the summit that there was no time to secure a concrete timetable and measures toward denuclearization of the North, but explained that Kim had promised to destroy a major missile engine-testing site.

The North has faced severe diplomatic and economic sanctions as it has advanced development of its nuclear and missile programs. Trump said that the U.S. will stop joint military exercises with South Korea, but that sanctions will remain in place until North Korea denuclearizes.

Trump mentioned that he raised the issue of abducted Japanese citizens during the summit, and Kim did not say the matter was resolved. Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzo said he is "determined to deal with North Korea face-to-face and resolve the abduction issue." (Compiled from AP and Mainichi reports)
