Another summit between leaders of United States and North Korea is foreseen in the future as President Donald Trump seeks to broker a deal with the Korean leader Kim Jong Un in which the North gives up its nuclear weapons, according to a White House announcement Friday.
This will be the second such meeting between the two countries and is expected to be held near the end of February at a place to be announced later, according to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “The United States is going to continue to keep pressure and sanctions on North Korea until we see fully and verified denuclearization,” Sanders added.
The first meeting between the two countries resulted in little tangible progress on the denuclearization agreement reached during their first meeting last June in Singapore. Trump had proposed a second summit earlier this past year.
During 2017, it seemed that the U. S. and North Korea were close to war. The North staged some weapons tests that brought it closer to its nuclear goal of some day being able to aim a target of weapons to anyplace in the U. S.
Hopefully, the bid for a second summit will go through and bring with it the peaceful understanding that the world needs in this day and age of terrorism arising across Mother Earth globally. We need a time of solidarity of all peoples in making our world a place that can live harmoniously with one another regardless of where it is located.
We need to solidify our existency and make it as permanent as possible and at least keep nuclear turmoils outside of the world’s problems.
