US and North Korea to reopen nuclear talks after surprise Trump-Kim meeting
Trump and Kim met in the Joint Security Area, which is patrolled by soldiers from both Koreas
Panmunjom/Seoul — US President Donald Trump became the first sitting US president to set foot in North Korea on Sunday when he met its leader, Kim Jong-un, in the demilitarised zone (DMZ) between the two Koreas and agreed to resume stalled nuclear talks.
The meeting, initiated by a spur-of-the-moment tweet by Trump that Kim said took him by surprise, once again displayed the rapport between the two. But they are no closer to narrowing the gap between their positions since they walked away from their summit in Vietnam in February.
