Donald Trump has ‘saluted’ North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un for not displaying its nuclear weapons during a military parade commemorating 70th anniversary of the country, The New Indian Express has reported.
In a series of two tweets, the US president said, “North Korea has just staged their parade, celebrating 70th anniversary of founding, without the customary display of nuclear missiles. Theme was peace and economic development. Experts believe that North Korea cut out the nuclear missiles to show President Trump its commitment to denuclearize,’ Fox News. This is a big and very positive statement from North Korea. Thank you To Chairman Kim. We will both prove everyone wrong! There is nothing like good dialogue from two people that like each other! Much better than before I took office.”
Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un had met in Singapore to discuss de-nuclearisation in Korean peninsula. The North Korean leader had pledged to give up nuclear weapons as per the demand on the United States of America. In August, International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) had said that North Korea was still developing nuclear weapons, according to reports by The Guardian.
