Trump and Kim holding historic meeting


The US president Donald Trump is in a positive position after the landmark private meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Now the meeting is going on between top officials of the two countries.

The much anticipated top-level meeting of the two countries started today (Tuesday) at 9 am local time (7 am of Bangladesh time). They sit in the five-star Capella Hotel on the island of Sentosa, Singapore.

This meeting is expected to create opportunities for peace in the Korean Peninsula. The issues of discussion of two leaders are at the center of international interest. They are talking about important issues to normalize relations between the two countries starting with North Korea`s nuclear weapons.

This is the first meeting between North Korea and the US President. In addition to Kim, his top advisors including Pyongyang`s top diplomat Kim Wong Cole are present in the meeting. When it is expected that the meeting will come unstuck last month, he handed the personal letter of Kim to Trump in Washington.

On Tuesday, South Korean President Moon Jae-in said, “He hoped the talks between Trump and Kim will open a new era of complete denuclearization, peace and a new relationship between South Korea, North Korea and the United States.” It is to be noted that he has worked as a mediator to make this meeting successful.

Earlier the White House had said that if the meeting is successful then more meetings will be held after the first meeting. The meeting may also be held on June 13 if needed. The schedule is set in the same way. And if there is no good indication then the President`s visit to Singapore will end after the first meeting.

Even President Trump said on Saturday that I will understand whether the meeting will be successful in a minute. I understand this by touching and feeling.
