U.S. mulling issuing joint document on DPRK denuclearization at Singapore summit

Saturday morning’s Nikkei claimed in its lead story that the Trump administration is considering issuing a joint document on denuclearization and a mechanism for peace on the Korean Peninsula when President Trump meets with DPRK leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore in mid-June. In the envisaged document, Washington is reportedly hoping to specify a timeframe for denuclearization and a roadmap to a guarantee for the Kim regime. Washington may also explore the possibility of issuing a statement declaring a formal end to the Korean War. Nikkei insisted on Sunday that the President’s diplomacy toward the DPRK would be regarded as a failure if the envisioned joint document did not specify a concrete mechanism and deadline for complete, verifiable, and irreversible denuclearization.
