Trump, Kim sign denuclearization deal in ‘new chapter’

June 12, 2018

President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed an agreement Tuesday committing the United States to unspecified “security guarantees” in exchange for a denuclearized Korean Peninsula, as Trump said the two were ready “to write a new chapter” between the nations. The agreement, and a surprise decision by Trump to call off joint military exercises with South Korea, capped a historic summit that represented the first ever meeting between a sitting U.S. president and a North Korean leader.
