Qatar welcomes Trump-Kim summit
DOHA: Qatar has welcomed the meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean President Kim Jong-Un yesterday in Singapore.
In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs recalled the meeting that took place between the leaders of the two Koreas in April and considered Trump and Kim meeting a historical precedent promising the further easing of tensions on the Korean Peninsula and reaching a binding agreement under which the denuclearisation of the peninsula would be made.
The comprehensive solution will be a quantum leap and a new achievement in efforts to curb the spread of nuclear weapons around the world, and perhaps that step is significant for the Middle East, which Qatar fears to become a nuclear racing arena, unless the situation of escalation is contained by activating peaceful means to resolve disputes and differences and to reduce the nuclear ambitions of all parties. The statement expressed the satisfaction of Qatar for the success of the meeting and expressed its wish that this would be followed by practical steps to achieve sustainable peace on the peninsula.
