and South Korea will meet for the first time since they were allies under the 1950-53 Korean War, with President Donald Trump vowing to use the summit to advance their nuclear arms control treaty.
The two Koreas will meet Monday and Wednesday at a summit in Florida to discuss the global nuclear threat posed by North Korea and the U.N. Security Council’s proposal to sanction it for its ballistic missile launches.
They also will discuss their bilateral efforts to boost military spending and improve coordination.
In an interview, Kim Jong Un said the summit would give the U,T.S., and South Koreans an opportunity to show their commitment to denuclearization and to increase military spending.
But he said he didn’t expect them to abandon the treaty.
