Trump and Kim Shake Hands, Months After Trading Insults
A firm handshake, a gesture that would've probably been unthinkable a few months ago. And this handshake set the historic summit in Singapore in motion, a summit that the whole world has tuned in to watch.
And why won't they? This is the first time ever the leaders of North Korea and the US have met – US President Donald Trump held one-on-one talks and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un
Trump described his historic talk with Kim Jong Un as 'very very good', as the two leaders met for a summit at Singapore’s Sentosa island on Tuesday, 12 June, over the future of Pyongyang’s nuclear programme.
This comes months after they traded insults and threats of a nuclear war.
According to Reuters, the meeting would have been unthinkable last year when tensions spiralled in the region over North Korea’s nuclear and missile programmes as it raced toward the goal of developing a nuclear-tipped missile capable of hitting the United States.
Kim too had good things to say about their meet
