United States and North Korea Off to a Good Start

On Tuesday, June 12, 2018, the historic summit between President Trump and North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-Un concluded by signing a joint statement, in which the United States committed to providing guarantees of security to North Korea in exchange for denuclearization.

Trump said he was suspending military exercises on the Korean Peninsula and that he expected the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un, to move “very quickly” to dismantle his nuclear arsenal after. Trump said economic sanctions against North Korea would remain in place.

Mr. Kim stated, “We had a historic meeting and decided to leave the past behind. The world will see a major change.”

While there are still serious human rights issues that future conversations must include, the overall agenda remains complicated and sensitive – one whose outcome holds great importance for America, Israel, and the world. AFSI is hoping for continued positive and productive meetings between the two leaders.
