President Moon Jae-in expressed his wish that the summit between US President Donald Trump and DPRK’s leader Kim Jong-un would eliminate hostile relations and reach a great agreement for the denuclearized Korean peninsula, praising Mr. Kim and Mr. Trump for their bold determination.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump arrived in Singapore in preparation for the meeting with the DPRK’s leader Kim Jong-un.
