Joint State­ment of Pres­i­dent Don­ald J. Trump of the United States of Amer­ica and Chair­man Kim Jong-un of the Demo­cratic Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of Korea at the Sin­ga­pore Sum­mit

Pres­i­dent Don­ald J. Trump of the United States of Amer­ica and Chair­man Kim Jong-un of the State Af­fairs Com­mis­sion of the Demo­cratic Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of Korea (DPRK) held a first, his­toric sum­mit in Sin­ga­pore on June 12, 2018.

Pres­i­dent Trump and Chair­man Kim Jong-un con­ducted a com­pre­hen­sive, in-depth, and sin­cere ex­change of opin­ions on the is­sues re­lated to the es­tab­lish­ment of new US-DPRK re­la­tions and the build­ing of a last­ing and ro­bust peace regime on the Korean Penin­sula. Pres­i­dent Trump com­mit­ted to pro­vide se­cu­rity guar­an­tees to the DPRK and Chair­man Kim Jong-un reaf­firmed his firm and un­wa­ver­ing com­mit­ment to com­plete de­nu­cle­ariza­tion of the Korean Penin­sula.

Con­vinced that the es­tab­lish­ment of new US-DPRK re­la­tions will con­trib­ute to the peace and pros­per­ity of the Korean Penin­sula and of the world, and rec­og­niz­ing that mu­tual con­fi­dence build­ing can pro­mote the de­nu­cle­ariza­tion of the Korean Penin­sula, Pres­i­dent Trump and Chair­man Kim Jong-un state the fol­low­ing:

1. The United States and the DPRK com­mit to es­tab­lish new US-DPRK re­la­tions in ac­cor­dance with the de­sire of the peo­ples of the two coun­tries for peace and pros­per­ity.

2. The United States and the DPRK will join their ef­forts to build a last­ing and sta­ble peace regime on the Korean Penin­sula.

3. Reaf­firm­ing the April 27, 2018 Pan­munjom Dec­la­ra­tion, the DPRK com­mits to work to­ward com­plete de­nu­cle­ariza­tion of the Korean Penin­sula.

4. The United States and the DPRK com­mit to re­cov­er­ing POW/MIA re­mains, in­clud­ing the im­me­di­ate repa­tri­a­tion of those al­ready iden­ti­fied.

Hav­ing ac­knowl­edged that the US-DPRK sum­mit — the first in his­tory — was an epochal event of great sig­nif­i­cance in over­com­ing decades of ten­sions and hos­til­i­ties be­tween the two coun­tries and for the open­ing up of a new fu­ture, Pres­i­dent Trump and Chair­man Kim Jong-un com­mit to im­ple­ment the stip­u­la­tions in this joint state­ment fully and ex­pe­di­tiously. The United States and the DPRK com­mit to hold fol­low-on ne­go­ti­a­tions, led by the US Sec­re­tary of State Mike Pom­peo, and a rel­e­vant high-level DPRK of­fi­cial, at the ear­li­est pos­si­ble date, to im­ple­ment the out­comes of the US-DPRK sum­mit.

Pres­i­dent Don­ald J. Trump of the United States and Chair­man Kim Jong-un of the State Af­fairs Com­mis­sion of the Demo­cratic Peo­ple’s Repub­lic of Korea have com­mit­ted to co­op­er­ate for the de­vel­op­ment of new US-DPRK re­la­tions and for the pro­mo­tion of peace, pros­per­ity, and se­cu­rity of the Korean Penin­sula and of the world.
