North Korea has pledged to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula on Tuesday 12th during the meeting of its leader, Kim Jong-un, and US President Donald Trump.
The two countries “have decided to leave the past behind” and “the world will see a big change,” according to Kim, who signed a four-item statement alongside Trump.
In one of the four items in the document, the North Korean leader pledges to work for the complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, reaffirming what was determined by the Panmunjon Declaration, signed on April 27, 2018 by the two Koreas.
The content of the document was considered “quite complete” by Trump, who says countries have established a special link after signing. The US president said Kim had accepted his invitation to visit the White House and that he plans to visit Pyongyang “at a certain point.”
“I learned that he is a very talented man who loves his country very much. He is a negotiator of value, who negotiates for the benefit of his people, “he praised.
Though the two leaders hold positive views about the outcome of the meeting, there were still some itches as the time for the denuclearization and so on.
The North Korean president stressed that there has been such a meeting in the past but without commitments.

1. The United States and North Korea undertake to establish relations in accordance with their peoples’ desire for peace and prosperity.
2. The two countries will unite their efforts to build a stable and lasting peace regime in the Korean peninsula;
3. Reaffirming the Panmunjon Declaration of 27 April 2018, North Korea commits itself to work towards the complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
4. The US and North Korea are committed to recovering the remains of prisoners of war, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified
