US President Donald Trump and North Korean top leader Kim Jong ended the historic summit on June 12, 2018. There was talk for about 50 minutes between the two leaders. Trump and Kim smiled looking at the end of the talks. During this, Donald Trump said that the meeting was very good.
For the first time, no executive president of America has met a North Korean leader. At the same time, 7 years after assuming power, Kim Jong came on the first visit to the country for the first time. The talks were held on the island of Sentosa, Singapore. After the meeting ended, Kim said in Trump, in English, "Nice to meet you, Mr. President."
Why is the historical?
Since the Korean War in the year 1950-53, the leaders of America and North Korea have never met or spoke on the phone. In the year 1952, there was a cease-fire between the two Koreas, but the peace agreement was not reached. After this, the two Korean countries were split into two tones, in which South Korea's tilt was considered towards the United States. On the other hand, North Korea and the United States were considered rivals. The Kim and Trump meeting in the present scenario is historically because both countries are meeting after such a long interval and are meaningful discussions to solve various issues.
