On Sunday, Donald Trump became the first US president to step on the territory of North Korea. He shook hands with the Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, during his meeting in the demilitarized zone of the inter-Korean border.
Trump stressed that the symbolic crossing of the border with North Korea is a great honor for him. For his part, Kim Jong-un said that Trump’s visit to North Korean territory reflects his willingness to work for a better future.
Also, Trump said he wanted to take advantage of his stay in South Korea, where he arrived after participating in the G20 summit in Japan. His goal was to shake hands and greet Kim Jong-un.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in has appreciated the bravery of both leaders for organizing a meeting. He also expressed the hope that Trump will enter history “as the president who achieves peace on the Korean peninsula.”
At the same time, Moon Jae-in said that, beyond the meeting in the demilitarized zone, there will not be an inter-Korean meeting.
