The dear North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said it was not easy to get to Singapore for the summit with U.S. President Donald Trump.
His comments, as per interpretation) reads as follows:
CHAIRMAN KIM: (As interpreted.) Well, it was not easy to get here. The past worked as fetters on our limbs, and the old prejudices and practices worked as obstacles on our way forward. But we overcame all of them, and we are here today.
Talking like a propagandist that he is, Kim apparently spoke in the style of centuries-old Korean proverbs that talk about wisdom in a bid to attract Trump’s sympathy.
In reply to Kim’s statement, Trump said: Its true.
Trump earlier said: “I feel really great. We’re going to have a great discussion and, I think, tremendous success. It will be tremendously successful. And it’s my honor. And we will have a terrific relationship, I have no doubt.”
These were the initial remarks by both leaders before the media was asked to leave the room where the historic meeting took place.
