South Korean President Moon Jae-in praised both President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un Tuesday, saying their bold action in Singapore will help to end the “cold war legacy” that has plagued the peninsula for 70 years.
“I pay my high compliments for the courage and determination of the two leaders, President Trump and Chairman Kim, not to settle for that outdated and familiar reality but to take a daring step towards change,” wrote Moon.
“The June 12 Sentosa Agreement will be recorded as a historic event that has helped break down the last remaining Cold War legacy on earth,” he added. “It is a great victory achieved by both the United States and the two Koreas, and a huge step forward for people across the world who long for peace.”
The South Korean President played a major role in bringing both Trump and Kim together, working behind the scenes for months to set-the-stage for the historic Singapore Summit.
