Media source 38 North, a U.S. agency that monitors North Korea, told CNN that only two small roof buildings were built for hospitality functions for senior officials or nuclear inspectors. Other improved infrastructure was developed before the Trump-Kim summit. [247] On June 30, NBC reported that, according to U.S. intelligence, North Korea could have increased nuclear fuel production in several secret locations after the summit, although the enrichment process, if it had taken place, had to begin before the summit. [249] [250] On 3 August, experts monitoring UN sanctions against North Korea sent a report to the UN Security Council stating that North Korea “has not stopped its nuclear and missile programmes” and that it is still violating sanctions by dumping coal at sea and failing to crack an arms embargo and financial sanctions. [251] [252] However, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri-Yong Ho said in a privileged speech at the ASEAN summit that “a good faith implementation of the joint declaration (between the United States and the DPRK) is necessary.” In reference to this speech, the North Korean monitoring group, 38 North, believes that an ALL TAKE-NO GIVE scheme will never work with the DPRK to achieve the goal of denuclearization. [253] [254] [255] [256] [256] [257] Both sides also agree to hold follow-up negotiations “as soon as possible to implement the outcome of the summit between the United States and the DPRK.” Q4: What were North Korea`s objectives at the summit and did they achieve them? After Mr. Trump`s renewed commitment to the June 1 summit, Singapore`s Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen welcomed the move and said Singapore would cover some of the costs of the summit. [137] Members of the U.S.

and North Korean delegations that met in Singapore in recent weeks reportedly visited Capella Singapore on Sentosa and the Fullerton Singapore Hotel in downtown Singapore. [138] The 2018 summit between North Korea and the United States in Singapore, known as the Singapore Summit, was a summit between North Korean President Kim Jong-un and U.S. President Donald Trump[4] held on June 12, 2018 at the Capella Hotel in Sentosa, Singapore. It was the first meeting between the heads of state and government of North Korea and the United States. They signed a joint declaration agreeing on security guarantees for North Korea, new peaceful relations, the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula, the restoration of the remains of soldiers and follow-up negotiations between senior officials. The two heads of state and government also met separately with Singapore`s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong. The four points on which Kim and Trump have agreed are not new. The assertion that the North “commits itself to the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula” is an ancient and familiar formulation introduced in 1992, when the joint declaration was signed by South Korea and North Korea. After the summit, North Korea managed to achieve a level of international legitimacy that it has long aspired to, without committing to full denuclearization, by giving a full explanation of its nuclear weapons program, or even any timetable. All the North had to do was approve a statement of principle that had good intentions on the edge of principle, and that was good enough for President Trump. On 5 March 2018, the South Korean special delegation decided to hold the third inter-Korean summit at the Inter-Korean House for Peace in Panmunjom on 27 April 2018.

[33] On 6 March, upon his return to South Korea, National Security Adviser Chung Eui-yong and National Information Director Suh Hoon visited the United States on March 8 to report to Mr. Trump on the upcoming inter-Korean summit and to convey North Korean President Kim Jong-un`s invitation to President Trump. [34] Trump supported the summit between North Korea and the United States about an hour after receiving the report.
