If North Korean leader Kim Jong Un “keeps the promise of denuclearisation, he will be able to lead his country into prosperity”, Moon said during a visit to Singapore. “This path is never easy, but if the agreements at the summit are implemented with sincerity, the goal can be achieved”, he added, referring to Kim’s meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump in the wealthy city state last month.
At the landmark summit, the two leaders pledge to work toward a complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula and easing tensions between the countries. There has yet to be any sign of concrete action by Pyongyang since June 12.
Moon also said that South Korea is willing to build an economic community with the North once the effort to root out Pyongyang’s nuclear ambitions is complete.
