Trump: the US does not exclude a step-by-step agreement with the DPRK, but focuses on a major deal

This deal boils down to the fact that Pyongyang should “get rid of nuclear weapons”, the head of the White House said.

The United States in principle does not exclude the conclusion of a step-by-step agreement with the DPRK on the settlement of the problem of Pyongyang’s nuclear developments, but is now guided by a major deal of this kind. This was reported on Thursday by the US President Donald Trump, answering journalists ‘ questions at a meeting with his colleague from the Republic of Korea Moon Jae-In, held in the White House.

“I have to see what the [real] deal is. There are various smaller transactions, which, it is possible, can take place. <...> Step-by-step component parts can be worked out. However, at the moment we are talking about a major deal”, Trump said, commenting on the prospects for reaching an agreement with the DPRK.

According to him, the essence of this “major deal” is that Pyongyang should “get rid of nuclear weapons”. No additional details Trump has not led.
