EU’s Top Diplomat Hails Singapore Summit as Important Step in Peace Progress

BRUSSELS – The European Union’s top diplomat Federica Mogherini hailed on Tuesday a historic summit between United States President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore as a crucial step towards a diplomatic solution to deescalating tensions on the Korean peninsula.

Mogherini, the EU’s high representative for foreign affairs, said the meeting between Trump and Kim demonstrated that diplomacy paved the way forward to peace in the region.

“The ultimate goal, shared by the entire international community and as expressed by the United Nations Security Council, remains the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula,” read the press statement released by Mogherini’s office.

“The Joint Statement signed by the US and DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) leaders today gives a clear signal that this goal can be achieved,” it added, thanking South Korean President Moon Jae-in for his leadership laying the groundwork that led to the summit.

Following the landmark summit in Singapore, Trump announced that the US would end its practice of staging war games on the Korean Peninsula in exchange the complete denuclearization of North Korea, which Kim has said he would fulfill.

“Chairman Kim has before him an opportunity like no other to be remembered as the leader who ushered in a glorious new era of prosperity for his people,” Trump told reporters.

Tuesday’s summit in Singapore, aimed at addressing the possible denuclearization of North Korea, is the first between the two countries’ heads of state after nearly 70 years of confrontation in the wake of the Korean War (1950-1953), and 25 years of failed negotiations and tensions over the North Korea’s nuclear program.
