“It made it clear that it would have no reason to keep nuclear weapons if the military threat to the North was eliminated and its security guaranteed.”
So they're just gonna demand that the US completely pulls out of South Korea and Japan and ceases all military drills.
That's the way I read that statement too.
They were working so long for creating nuclear weapons and now they want to get rid of it? Either they failed miserable on producing them or they negotiation tactic is a fluke.
See above, Kim gets to look like the good guy asking for something he knows isn't going to happen.
Hopefully I'm just being pessimistic and this really is a step in the right direction. Lets say they do quit with the nukes, will Kim open his country to the rest of the world and increase the standard of living for his people?
