Moon presses Trump, Kim for breakthrough in nuclear talks

Singapore, July 13: South Korean President Moon Jae-in has urged US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to try harder to achieve a breakthrough in their nuclear negotiations.
Moon said at a forum in Singapore today that Trump and Kim would “face the stern judgment of the international community” if their promises on denuclearisation weren’t kept.
Singapore was the host of a historic summit between Trump and Kim last month when they agreed to work toward the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula, without describing when and how it would occur.
