Following the talks, they also agreed to work on the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. According to Reuters, back in January this year, Moon said Trump "deserves big credit for bringing about the inter-Korean talks".
It's certainly too early to nominate Trump for a Nobel Peace Prize.
South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Monday that he only wanted peace on the Korean Peninsula, while it is US President Donald Trump who should be given a Nobel Peace Prize for the settlement of situation around North Korea, local media reported, citing Seoul officials. This would make Trump the first sitting U.S. president to meet a North Korean leader. "I may go in, it may not work out, I leave". Those sanctions focused on blocking most of the north's conventional trade links, a move which had not previously been attempted in earnest. But the reality is that the Trump administration inherited a political situation that was, as renowned conflict professor I William Zartmann would say, "ripe".
Kim crossed the border surrounded by numerous bodyguards and handlers. This is what has happened on the Korean peninsula. For all the nuclear breakthroughs, the north's economy has very little room to breathe thanks to the sanctions.
Trump made the case for a meeting in the neutral territory between the two heavily fortified countries after White House officials had named a pair of neutral countries as a possible meeting place. He added that the Southeast Asian city state of Singapore was also in the running. As the BBC noted, Kim pledged "new history" with South Korea, and this was considered a significant event by many.
The date and venue of the meeting has not been officially announced. Instead, patience was needed. So what kind of talks will these be?
"We have an obligation to engage in diplomatic discourse to try and find a peaceful solution so that Americans aren't held at risk by Kim Jong Un and his nuclear arsenal", and there is a "real opportunity" for progress, Pompeo said.
China said Monday that its foreign minister, Wang Yi, will visit Pyongyang, North Korea's capital, on Wednesday and Thursday.
But a venue has yet to be confirmed.
A Trump-Kim meeting in the Peace House, which sits just south of the line of demarcation between North and South Korea, would be laden with symbolism.
"I think that has resonated until this whole point now".
The continued thawing of relations between the US, North, and South Korea continued Sunday, with the brutal despot agreeing to cede his weapons to external authorities if Trump agrees to halt any future attacks on the communist nation. It says Seoul expects Pyongyang to do the same.
The Panmunjom Declaration signed by Moon and Kim on April 27 is phrased in rather broad and general terms, but it has to be since it is a consensus document.
