Trump Optimistic That Summit Will Lead To Denuclearization
U-S President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have signed a joint document in which they commit to working toward the ``complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.''
The document signed at their historic summit in Singapore also includes a commitment to recovering the remains of U-S military personnel missing in action and presumed dead from the Korean War.
Nearly 7,800 U-S troops remain unaccounted for from the 1950-to-1953 war.
Trump also said he would like to eventually bring U.S. troops home from South Korea. There are more than 30,000 U.S. troops in South Korea.
North Korea has long been angry about the joint military operations between the U.S. and South Korea, viewing them as preparation for an invasion. In a news briefing, Trump said the joint exercises are very expensive and "provocative."
