US President Donald Trump said his summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un ended with no agreement because he was not willing to lift all the sanctions on North Korea.
“It was about the sanctions,” he told reporters after the summit ended without a joint statement. “Basically, they wanted the sanctions lifted in their entirety, and we couldn’t do that.”
A summit between North Korea’s Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump ended without agreement, the White House said earlier on Thursday after the two-day meeting.
“No agreement was reached at this time, but their respective teams look forward to meeting in the future,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.
