Kim asked for partial sanctions relief in exchange for shuttering nuclear facilities.
Trump’s answer: “Basically, they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety, and we couldn’t do that. They were willing to denuke a large portion of the areas that we wanted, but we couldn’t give up all of the sanctions for that.”
End of the show.
Editor of Chinese newspaper Hu Xijin:
North Korea asks for partial, not entire removal of the sanctions. I think this is a reasonable demand. The US should have serious talks with North Korea on conditions for partial removal of sanctions.
