North Korea Media Highlights Trump Concessions on War Games
North Korea’s state media lauded the summit between its leader, Kim Jong-un, and US President Donald Trump as a resounding success, highlighting concessions by the US president and the prospect of a new era of peace and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula.
The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported on Wednesday that Trump expressed his intention to halt US-South Korea joint military exercises, offer security guarantees to the North and lift sanctions against it as relations improve.
KCNA also reported that the two leaders have agreed during their breakthrough summit to visit each other’s country at an unspecified time.
The news agency said that Kim invited Trump to visit Pyongyang “at a convenient time” and that Trump also invited Kim to visit the US.
KCNA said the two leaders “gladly accepted each other’s invitation, convinced that it would serve as another important occasion for improved” relations between their countries.
Al Jazeera reported that no sitting US and North Korean leaders have visited each other’s countries since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War.
