North Korea keeps rejecting U.S. proposals for ‘starting and proceeding to the end point of fully verified denuclearization,’ and calls them ‘gangster-like.’ Was the document signed during the summit useless? Scroll down to see the results.
The United States is trying to take the next step on denuclearization with North Korea, making “specific proposals for starting and proceeding to the end point of fully verified denuclearization.”
The Trump administration is under deep pressure to see North Korea take some tangible steps toward denuclearization. So far, they have done nothing but reject proposals made by the US, calling them “gangster-like,” a source revealed.
The promises made between President Trump and North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un at the June summit, appear to be dissolving as time pushes on. The brief document the two leaders produced during the summit did not indicate specific details on a time frame, milestones that were to be met, or any specific promises made. This allowed both sides to interpret the meet as they wished, and the public to not be clued in on the specifics.
The US is demanding full and verifiable denuclearization from North Korea. In the meantime, they are maintaining sanctions, which North Korea isn’t taking well. North Korea wants the sanctions pressure lifted and an agreed peace treaty, before they will take any further steps, according to CNN.
The US has been asking North Korea to offer up a big gesture, by giving up a portion of its nuclear weapons in the near term. Perhaps, Kim Jong Un may deliver another good gesture as he did with releasing three American captives.
Many hailed Trump for doing what no other president has ever been able to successfully do – meet with Kim Jong Un and agree on denuclearization. Furthermore, North Korea took positive steps forward by demolishing a nuclear testing site. However, since then, satellites have spotted nuclear sites, which has many questioning if it was all a show put on by Kim Jong Un.
Did Kim Jong Un play President Trump? We can only hope not and that these two will find a negotiation that works for them both. A lack of trust amongst both must be on the verge of all that decision making. Was the document signed during the summit by President Trump and Kim Jong Un useless? 19% of people find it useless, while 81% of people don’t, and think they are still negotiating.
