The president of the United States, Donald Trump, on Sunday made history by being the first US president to set foot in North Korea.
After crossing the line that divides South and North Korea (demilitarized zone), Trump shook hands with North Korea’s president Kim Jong-un.
“It’s a great day for the world and it’s an honour for me to be here,” Trump said.
After the handshake, the two crossed back into South Korea where they held talks for about 50 minutes. After which the two parties agreed to resume the stalled nuclear talks.
“A lot of really positive things are happening. Really positive. I’ll invite him to the White House right now, ” the US president said.
However, Trump said that the sanctions against North Korea will still remain in place but hinted things might change in future.
In a bold move on Saturday, Trump wrote to Kim on twitter asking that they meet at the border of South and North Korean border.
” If Chairman Kim of North Korea sees this, I would meet him at the Border/DMZ just to shake his hand and say Hello(?)!” Trump tweeted Kim while in Osaka, Japan where he was attending the G20 summit.
On behalf of the North Korean president, the Vice Foreign Minister Choe Son Hui termed the offer as “a very interesting suggestion”.
