President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un took steps toward decreasing tensions on the Korean peninsula, in a joint statement signed by the two leaders Tuesday.

The text of the agreement was seen by reporters before its official release by the White House after Trump held it up during a joint signing ceremony with Kim Jong Un. The text of the agreement notes first that “the United States and the DPRK commit to establish new US-DPRK relations in accordance with the desire of the peoples of the two countries for peace and prosperity.”

The text also indicates that Trump gave security guarantees to the North Korean regime in exchange for taking concrete steps towards denuclearization.

Most consequentially North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a pledge to “work toward complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”

Trump and Kim also committed to holding future meetings between their two countries “led by the US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, and a relevant high-level DPRK official, at the earliest possible date, to implement the outcomes of the US-DPRK summit.”

“Chairman Kim and I just signed a joint statement in which he reaffirmed his unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean peninsula. We also agreed to vigorous negotiations to implement the agreement as soon as possible and he wants to do that,” Trump said at a press conference, adding that North Korea will destroy a major missile-testing site as an outside gesture of good faith.

Trump expressed major optimism at the signing ceremony, saying, “We are very proud of what took place today. I think our whole relationship with North Korea and the Korean peninsula is going to be a very much different situation than it has in the past,” adding “people are going to be very impressed, people are going to be very happy, and we are going to take care of a very big and very dangerous problem for the world.”

The president also noted he would “absolutely” invite Kim Jong Un to the White House. Kim Jong Un also told reporters “today, we had a historic meeting and decided to leave the past behind and we are about to sign the historic document,” adding “The world will see a major change.”

    Amazing! Who else but Donald Trump could do this? He does deserve the Nobel Peace Prize for this historic effort. The best part is that it will stick in the craw of the Democratic party! This is the final straw that breaks the back of the Democrats and will prove once-and-for-all, that Donald Trump is a man of his word!

      The fact that Trump has alienated most of our traditional allies, in order to suck up to two ruthless dictators, isn’t likely to impress anyone other than the very foolish, the very gullible, and the very fascist. Least of all the Nobel committee.

        You knot head. Trump is not alienating our traditional allies. What you do not understand he has his ways of negotiating and he is always doing that no matter what it looks like. 2020 all the way

      If he is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize I should hope he would give it to Otto Warmbier’s parents in memory of Otto. We should never forget what Otto went through.

        Annabel, Yes we should never forget what Otto went through, it was Trump who got this summit to happen. 2020 all the way.

    God bless our president, Donald J. Trump , for bringing this about. It sounds like Kim has made a turnaround and will become our ally. What wonderful work the Donald has accomplished! We often pray for our enemies, but President Trump has helped the entire world by turning Kim around. Kim will have a better life from now on and, very hopefilly, so will his people and we Americans.

      Do you seriously think that Kim Jong Un has suddenly had a change of heart, and is now willing to become Trump’s loyal disciple, just because?

      That’s about as likely as it would be for you to convert to Islam, just because some head of state told you it would be best for you.

        Olivia, you are so correct and President Trump will keep an eagle eye on him. If Kimmie screws up, God help him. Trump is no fool. Kim will not get away with anything.

    Here’s what’s going to happen. IF this is successful, they’ll give the Nobel Peace Prize to Kim Jong Un. They’ll find any way they can NOT to give it to President Trump.

      Well…as Trump says, “It’s an honor meeting Kim, Mo-Ron” and Kim has a “great personality”–so why not? at least Kim’s weird hairdo is his own hair.

      Agree wholeheartedly! Both should get it, and have earned it even if this is as far as it gets for a while – we are talking and not firing missiles at each other. Peace, MAGA.

    God Bless America and our President. The more extreme of our media, politicians, and celebs – among others are now in over-load mode. They’ll now be churning out vicious webs of false claims and attacks; no matter how crazed or ridiculous they may sound, matters not. It’s getting fairly hard to keep denouncing the positive things President Trump does…….and they always find something to twist into a negative. I pray this agreement with NK strengthens and expands into all their nukes being dismantled, along with their test sites destroyed. I’m hoping this all can then morph into a ‘new’ NK that can feed it’s people, and build up into what is a country of wealth and prosperity. Keeping my fingers crossed……

    Every President since Truman has tried to get the Korean peninsula united and peaceful. Only ONE person has ever done anything of substance…..Trump. I know the haters will still hate but this is a job well done.

      So the Korean peninsula is now united and peaceful?

    They will NEVER give it to Trump, no matter what he accomplishes. The Nobel Committee gave it to Obama for “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples” and he was nominated just days after becoming President. He did nothing to earn it, it was merely a partisan political award given with hope that he’s accomplish something great. He didn’t. The Committee’s Secretary later said it was a mistake. But their group is dominated by socialists, so no great surprise that they would fawn over Obama. They may give it to Kim Jong Un, but never Trump.

      Trump said once that he did not care about the prize He just wants it to work out !!!!

    What do they mean by ” denuclearization of the Korean peninsula”? The Korean peninsula consists of both North and South Korea. Are they implying that the US remove any nuclear weapons from South Korea, if any are there? Or are they talking about removing nuclear weapons that North Korea is threatening South Korea with? Sorry if this sounds a bit “ignorant”, but to say ” denuclearization of the Korean peninsula” implies a lot more than just North Korea.

    And congratulations to BOTH leaders

    I am all for Trump getting the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts in North Korea….I think Dennis Rodman should get one too (I never cared for the man, BUT I give credit where credit is due}…he tried to strike up a meeting with Obozo when he was president but was ignored…I have to give some of the credit to him….It would seem that the liberals need their “boogie man” to advance their agendas….Saddam Hussain, Muammar Gaddafi, Kim Jong Un

    NO matter how much the democrats and socialists slam our president, He is doing more for this country, more towards peace and more towards securing our borders. More for the working man, no matter how Pelosi says it is crumbs. I stand with our president.

    Don’t hold your breath , the Democrats and Progressives will attack any agreement made and try to disrupt any progress because they Hate Trump and do not want him to succeed at anything.

    To hear the liberal media this was a total flop. No matter what President Trump does they will lie and/or make it out that President Trump doesn’t know what he’s doing. I will NEVER AGAIN vote for another democrat because now I don’t trust any of them and it’s a disgrace the way they treat the President. They don’t have to agree but this is way too much for me to ever again believe anything a Democratic politician or the liberal media has to say. I’m a senior citizen and in all my years of voting I’ve never seen anything so disrespectful or have I even see so much hatred for another human being. I don’t know how these people sleep at time. It seems their every waking moment is consumed with President Trump and Russia.

    Pardon my ignorance but I’m still trying to figure out how the hell Obama got the Nobel Prize, other then being our first Black President !

    • Kamkoz

      June 13, 2018 at 2:06 am

      IF Obama had been the first “black president” I may have acknowledged that fact, but he wasn’t. He is, and always will be half white. There was nothing special about Obama except for the “tan” he wore while trying to destroy anything white, including inside himself.

      When a true African American steps into the oval office as the President, then I will gladly affirm and support.

      Until then, Obama and the rest of his Muslim connections, that he himself has stated that he has, need to stop trying to be anything besides the nothing he was, and is still trying to be….

      • Eddie Fast

        Right on, Kamkoz. 2020 all the way.

    As far as President Trump and his meeting with Kim, I think that anytime a 70 year old wound has been given the bandage to heal, that is indeed a monumental time in the history of Americas Great Nation.

    All, as American Citizens, should be extremely Proud of what has transpired in the last couple of days.

      Keep in mind, Art, we had politicians running the swamp back then. The swamp is drying up and things are not as bogged down as the left would like us to believe.
