The President said that the U.S. continues preparations for the summit
The US President Donald trump said on Thursday that the United States is ready “to be done” in order to provide “protection” to North Korean leader if he agrees to abandon nuclear weapons.
Answering questions of journalists at the White house in the beginning of the meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, the President said that Kim Jong-UN “has received a very strong protection”.
Trump said that the scenario that he is now considering, will protect Kim Jong-UN. “He’s there, he will manage his country, his country will be very rich,” said the President.
“The best thing he can do now is to agree to the terms of the agreement,” said trump.
Yesterday in Pyongyang said that North Korea may abandon negotiations with the United States if Washington did not abandon claims of “unilateral” refusal of the nuclear weapons. The state news Agency of the DPRK also accused the US presidential Advisor for national security John Bolton that he intends to implement a “Libyan model” of the situation with North Korea.
According to the President trump, he intends to make Pyongyang a deal that will be fundamentally different from the agreement of President Bush with the head of Liviii Gaddafi in 2003.
“There was no deal, which assumed that Gaddafi will remain…the Libyan model was completely different” – said trump.
The President said that the sanctions imposed on North Korea, will remain in place as long as talks on denuclearization will not succeed.
“If the meeting takes place, it will be, said Donald trump. – If not, we will move on to the next stage.”
He also stressed that preparation for negotiations continues, as Washington has not yet received any official communication about the intention of the DPRK to withdraw from the summit.
“Our representatives are literally talking to them right now, filling in details,” said trump.
U.S. lawmakers from both parties noted that it is not surprised by the threat of North Korea to cancel the planned meeting between President Donald trump and Kim Jong-UN.
Objections Pyongyang about the U.S.-South Korean military exercises and the position of the administration trump North Korea’s nuclear program – an obvious negotiating ploy, said Republican Senator Tom Tillis.
“I think this is normal at this stage of any negotiations. The question is, will there be in the end of the summit,” he said.
