    TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - The high-level meeting of US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un on Tuesday, June 12, resulted in four agreements.

    The two leaders, who throughout 2017 mutually insulted and bullied each other over the denuclearization of North Korea, were satisfied with the meeting held in Singapore.

    The first point of the agreement is that the United States and North Korea are committed to build a new relationship that fits the public's wishes in both countries, namely peace and prosperity.

    Second, the United States and North Korea will work together to build a lasting relationship and realize the peace stability on the Korean Peninsula.

    Third, both parties affirmed the Panmunjom Declaration made on 27 April 2018. Through this declaration, North Korea is committed to complete the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.

    Fourth, the United States and North Korea commit to repatriate the prisoners of war and missing persons that are still in North Korea, including repatriating those who are already identified.

    On the agreements, the fate of economic sanctions that have been applied to North Korea by the United States and its allies was not mentioned.

    But the Chinese Foreign Ministry said the sanctions imposed on North Korea might be considered again after Kim Jong Un and Donald Trump signed comprehensive agreements on the denuclearization.
