Trump and Kim sign historic document in Singapore

US President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong-un signed a document in Singapore on June 12 at the end of their epic meeting. The contents are to be disclosed later at a news conference winding up this extraordinary occasion. US officials have meanwhile revealed a joint commitment was made by the two leaders to work together for the complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula and for the building a “lasting and stable regime in Pyongyang.

Trump said he was proud to sign “an important, comprehensive document. Our relations with the Korean peninsula will be very different from the past; we have developed a special bond and taken care of a very big and dangerous problem for the world.” Trump added: “It went far better than anyone could have predicted and it will lead to more and more.” Turning to the North Korean leader, Trump said: It is an honor to be with you.” He thanked Secretary State Mike Pompeo and his counterparts “who were absolutely fantastic” for all their hard work and preparations for the historic occasion. Kim Jong-un: “Today we have left the past behind and are signing a historic document, The world will see a major change. I express my gratitude to President Trump for making it happen.”

Kim earlier called the historic summit a “prelude to peace” and said: “We have overcome so many obstacles. ” He commented: “Many people in the world will think of this as a fantasy.”

A warm, smiling handshake followed in farewell.

President Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un shook hands  ahead of their summit in Singapore, the first time sitting leaders from both countries had ever met. The pair greeted each other at the luxury Capella hotel on Sentosa Island, just off the Singaporean coast, before heading in for talks about denuclearization. The two clasped hands for a long while as they posed for photos in front of a row of US and North Korean flags. Mr Trump then directed Mr Kim to walk down a hallway, where they briefly spoke.  In their first 41 minutes, Trump and Kim met one-on-one, joined only by interpreters.  Then aides came in for more discussions and a working lunch.

The signing ceremony, which was not announced in advance of the summit, confirmed DEBKAfile’s earlier report that the occasion and the two leaders were fully prepared down to the last detail.

    It is likely, that the 400 lb. porky-piglet Kim still entertains the notion, that he can bamboozle
    the President of the most powerful land and his ultra-right team ?! Do not try, or you will never loose weight…

      Very interesting ; They are so similar , that this one might actually work ; Both are eccentric, over the line , over the weight , stuck to their agenda , etc , etc . Actually they are the same dna , and if you did not look at them you could say , that they are copies of each other , brother Karamazov of kind or Father and son .
      Very nice to see it happen . Hopefully Israel will find also some partners for dialog and make peace that works for everyone.

        Liberals should try to remember the difference between Trump and Kim when they whine about the US President: Kim kills his family members with military grade nerve agents and anti-aircraft guns, Kim also runs concentration camps for those who even laugh at his haircut and is responsible for the death of hundreds of thousands of people. The worst thing Trump ever did was grab some pussy once and pay to play with big porn star boobies.

        US Troops should be pulled out of Germany until German Taxpayers starts paying for their Protection, that way Russia can invade and who would care if Germans live under Russians again! No one will miss them whining and crying again.

        That is an interesting scenario which has to be considered.

        Right now I don’t think that a North Korean invasion of South Korea would be successful or that the USA troops make a major difference to the balance of forces. The USA presence is mostly a tripwire which has kept China from pushing through/South. Seriously, right now I think NoKo could find that even if they did subjugate SoKo that they might have devastating logistical problems.

        After a deal and if NoKo becomes prosperous the military and logistical situation could change fairly dramatically and the invasion of SoKo just might become a winner for NoKo and their Chinese ownership.

      Look at it this way:
      1. Kim gives up his nukes: Trump Wins
      2. Kim tries making Trump look stupid. Trump bombs the crap out of his military: Trump Wins

      Lookout Kim you just got Trumped

      The thing I love most about Trump, is how he has pissed off every single left wing wannabe in the world and has them all running around like their heads are cut off saying really stupid stuff

        Just like Merkle and Trudeau Trumped at the G-7 on Trade, Tariffs, and Defense! The EU knows when to Fold Their Cards now and Trump knows when to Throw his own Winning Hand down upon them. They are learning how to follow and run as they did a long time ago.

    The deal has already been made – when Kim’s general and right hand man travelled to Washington to brief Trump on what the Chinese had instructed NK to do last month. Both parties want to limit Chinese influence in the region. Kim Jong Un would love nothing less than to come under Trumps protective wing – economically, politically and then later perhaps also militarily. Meanwhile the Chinese would rather NK people continue to suffer than see a unified Korean peninsular under the solid protection, blessing and influence of the USA. This is a strategic move by both parties to release NK from the evil bondage of communism.

      Have you any idea how much China will make building up NK? NK is one giant Trojan horse, the only strategy change is from hardened resistance to greed penetrating influence and distraction.

        Once North and South Koreans come together they will be bigger Trading Partners than Canada! China, Japan, and even Russia knows it. They all once thought they could conquer and control Korea but Koreans adopted the Will to Survive and this Will will prosper and and thrive!

    Very good success for Kim! His predecessors had tried hard to get to this level, with no luck.
    But Kim did it, Donald was conveniently maneuvered, and here we are!

    KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK KIM!

    Let us hope now that peace has a chance, God forbid the other guy sends a crazy tweet and retracts all promises. Justin Pierre James Trudeau of Canada would have presented a more trusty deal maker, but it was Kim ambition to bring to the table the POTUS.

      Justin Pierre Trudeau is a good reason for Canadians to shit their pants. Rabbi Nachman says a great descent leads to a great ascent. Things must get better for Canada, they don’t really deserve him?

      Ever hug a bear? That maple leaf wants to hug two!! His only hope is they will find him so attractive that they bang their heads together, fall in love and forget about him.

      Regretfully the top White House economic anticanadian adviser Larry Kudlow suffered yesterday a heart attack.

      This is most probably an evil eye curse occurrence derived from the G6+1 recent meeting, similar to the other recent occurrences, like for a sample the recent wave of “sonic attacks”.

      Mister Kudlow apparently did not carry a Hamsa talisman, yet Rabbi Eliezer clearly indicated an evil eye is worse than a bad friend. Unfortunately there is no known treatment for a curse.

        Yes, yes! It could be the evil eye, provided the meeting left many people teeth grinding, but who could surely know such a fact?
        Muslims take the evil eye very seriously!
        There is a common misunderstanding that saying “Masha’Allah” is sufficient but that is not the case, only “TabarakAllah” is the protection against such evil. I strongly recommend to mister Kudlow to whisper “TabarakAllah” three times after Fajr and after Maghrib just before a strong meeting or tweeting, but this will help only for the next occurrences.

    If Kim plays his cards right, . . . his tenure is assured for a long, long life, . . . by simply opening up on the capitalist idea that has catapulted Vietnam to preeminence in the South East Asia arena. The NVA old guard died off, . . . younger blood could not make communism work, . . . and if Kim allows the same to happen in KN, it is a win-win-win for everyone.

    Trump can easily make that happen for him, . . . and I certainly hope he does.
