Although all details regarding the denuclearization agreement were not revealed, an excerpt from the related hereinafter statement read as follows:
“President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to [North Korea], and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”
