He said the sanctions against Pyongyang would however remain in place until ‘the nukes are no longer a factor’.

The US President hailed the DPRK commitment to ‘complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula’ and said verification processes had been discussed but conceded that full denuclearization would take a long time.

Trump said he believed the Korean war will soon end saying “the past does not have to define the future, yesterday’s conflict does not have to be tomorrow’s war”.
