Though details on the denuclearisation of North Korea were in short supply, what emerged from the historic summit between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday (June 12) was a clear desire to end the Korean War, said analysts.
Said Dr Alan Chong of the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies: “This summit is a good start… but you must watch for deeds, not words, in the aftermath. The North Koreans have all been known to tear up agreement or go back on agreements.”
He added: “Yes, this is a day to be remembered positively, but let’s be cautious. I’ll say it’s one step forward for peace on the Korean Peninsula and one step forward for peace across Asia, insofar as it’s linked to the Korean stand-off.”
