The joint statement signed between US President Donald J Trump and Chairman of the State Affairs Commission of the DPRK Kim Jong Un is a significant first step towards the realisation of lasting peace and stability on a denuclearised Korean Peninsula. The Ministers encourage the US and the DPRK to fully implement the Statement in order to lay the groundwork to establish a lasting and stable peace regime and complete denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula.
