After trading words for quite a long time US President Donald Trump and North Korean President Kim Jong-un at last signed a “very comprehensive” document after their historic summit on Tuesday with this it looks America would be easily spreading its wings to the eastern side of the globe and would be able to comfortably counter-check Chinese influence. War can be started by any one only the stronger one can sustain peace. The inking of the agreement with America will also give a chance for the unification of both the Koreas. If that probability emerges United Korea would be a power to reckon with. With this the process of denuclearisation of Korean peninsula has begun. Trump and Kim are the first leaders of their respective countries to meet, marking the culmination of months of diplomatic wrangling and negotiations. In return US has offered “unique” security guarantees to North Korea for a “complete, verifiable and irreversible” denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula. The success or failure of the summit cannot be judged until and unless North Korea actually submits to the type of international inspections that can verify that they are giving up their nuclear weapons. For the last year, Trump and Kim have traded barbs and threats – even suggesting they would attack the other with nuclear weapons. The US leader also suggested other American military action. He had a decidedly different tone and demeanor on Tuesday, smiling widely alongside Kim and often touching the dictator’s shoulder, elbow and back. The treaty would also end the over six decades old war between South and North Korea. The Korean War was halted in 1953 with a truce and has never been formally brought to a close. China fought on the North’s side and the United States on the South’s, and both are signatories to the armistice, along with the North; South Korea, at the time, refused to sign it. Any peace treaty would therefore have to involve Washington and Beijing.
