The full text of the joint agreement was released by South Korean Yonhap news agency. The document includes four points: the establishment of “new” US-North Korea relations, peace on the Korean peninsula, its “complete denuclearization,” and a commitment regarding the recovery of prisoners of war remains by both sides.
Kim Jong-un confirmed his commitment to the “complete denuclearization of Korean Peninsula,” in a joint document signed with President Trump in Singapore on Tuesday. According to the press, the text does not mention “complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearization,” however, it does reaffirm the Panmunjom Declaration, signed by Kim on April 27, 2018.
The US also vowed to provide security guarantees to North Korea, which had been sought by Pyongyang due to its concerns about American military drills in the region. However, it is still unclear what type of guarantees were discussed.
The two sides are going to hold further negotiations involving US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, aimed at implementing the results of the summit.
