A pos­i­tive step to­wards global peace

The Hitavada - - THE OPINION PAGE -

Sir,

The sum­mit that took place be­tween US Pres­i­dent Mr. Don­ald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong un is surely a firm step to en­sure global peace. In the re­cent past they were talk­ing of war, adamant at­ti­tude, in­sult­ing each other, and threat­en­ing to de­stroy each other’s coun­try. One is ma­tured and well es­tab­lished Democ­racy and the other one ruled by dy­nas­tic dic­ta­tor­ship aim­ing only at mak­ing de­struc­tive nu­clear weapons with China’s in­di­rect sup­port. South Korea and Ja­pan were also wor­ried as they were also the tar­get.Al­bert Ein­stein said “if mankind does not end war, it is war that will end mankind”. Peace is now as­sured. Bet­ter late than never.

Sir,

The meet­ing of the cen­tury ended with a good bon­homie be­tween the two lead­ers who were en­gaged in al­ter­ca­tion a few months be­fore. But we can­not ar­tic­u­late that the meet­ing was suc­cess­ful as ev­ery­thing de­pends on the mecu­rial Kim’s prom­ise of de­nu­cle­ri­sa­tion. Still we need to wait for cel­e­bra­tions as ear­lier also fickle North Korean leader did not walk on his talk.
