One of the highlights from the meeting, was that the North Korean leader “reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”
Speaking after the meeting, Trump said him and Kim “learned a lot about each other and our countries.” He continued: “I learned he’s a very talented man.”
We both want to do something. We both are going to do something. And we have developed a very special bond. So, people are going to be very impressed. People are going to be very happy.
Kim, through his translator, echoed Trump’s sentiments. He said:
Today, we had a historic meeting and decided to leave the past behind. The world will see a major change.
Kim’s assistant was also overheard saying, while the two leaders walked on: “Many people in the world will think of this as a (inaudible) form of fantasy … from a science fiction movie.”
In the historic summit, US president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed a comprehensive joint document. In the joint text, Kim Jong Un has committed to ‘complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula’ while Trump has agreed to provide security guarantees to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).
It was also gathered that when Kim arrived in Singapore on an Air China Boeing 747, he was accompanied by an IL-76 transport plane carrying food, “his bullet-proof limousine and a portable toilet.”
Accordingly to Lee Yun-keol, who worked in a North Korean Guard Command unit before defecting to South Korea in 2005, “rather than using a public restroom, the leader of North Korea has a personal toilet that follows him around when he travels,” Lee Yun-keol told the Washington Post.
“The leader’s excretions contain information about his health status so they can’t be left behind,” Lee Yun-keol explained.
According to the South Korean news agency Daily NK, there is a customised bathroom built into Kim’s convoy of vehicles at all times.
“The restrooms are not only in Kim Jong Un’s personal train but whatever small or midsize cars he is traveling with and even in special vehicles that are designed for mountainous terrain or snow,” a source in South Pyongan Province familiar with Kim’s Escort Command told the DailyNK in 2015. “There are multiple vehicles within the convoy so that people cannot tell which one he is in, and there is a separate car that acts as his restroom.”
