U.S. President Donald Trump on June 30 became the first sitting American leader to set foot on North Korean soil when he met dictator Kim Jong Un for the third time in just over a year.

Trump and Kim met at the heavily fortified truce village of Panmunjom in the Demilitarized Zone, where Trump shook hands with the young leader at the military demarcation line and stepped into the North in a display rich in symbolism.

U.S. talks with the North over its nuclear weapons program had been on ice since the last Kim-Trump summit, in February in Hanoi, with major differences over the scope of North Korea’s denuclearization and potential sanctions relief by the United States.

However, the historic meeting — which morphed from a mere handshake and greeting into a more-than-50-minute talk — appeared to inject some much-needed momentum into the stalled talks.

Speaking after the talks, the U.S. president, joined by South Korean leader Moon Jae-in, called the meeting “a great, historic day” and said both sides would designate working-level teams to seek a deal on denuclearization.

“Over the next two to three weeks the teams are going to start working to try to see if they can do something,” Trump said, referring to the denuclearization talks as “Very big stuff, very complicated, but not as complicated as people think.” (The Japan Times)
