Trump: the US is ready to ease sanctions against North Korea, but first wait for steps from it

The US President Donald Trump said he would like to lift us sanctions against North Korea, but the authorities of this country should be the first to meet.

“The US sanctions are still in place. I would like to remove them, but first I have to see steps towards the other side,” the American leader said on Wednesday during a speech to journalists in the White House. “I think that North Korea has a very large economic potential because of its location — around Russia, China and South Korea. I think he [Kim Jong — UN] understands it,” the US President said.

“I don’t think this will be our last meeting. We have very good relations, ” Trump said about the prospects of the third summit of leaders.

Earlier, Trump said that his second meeting with Kim Jong-UN will be held in the capital of Vietnam from 27 to 28 February. The first-ever meeting of the President of the United States and the leader of the DPRK was held on June 12 last year in Singapore. At the end of the summit, the leaders signed a joint document in which Pyongyang committed itself to denuclearization in exchange for security guarantees from Washington. The parties did not stipulate any specific terms, having decided to define them at the subsequent negotiations.
