President Pahor welcomes the historic meeting and the Trump-Kim agreement

Ljubljana, 12. 6. 2018 | press release

The President of the Republic of Slovenia, Borut Pahor, welcomes the historic meeting between the President of the US, Donald Trump, and the North Korean leader Kim-Jong un in Singapour. Their meeting and the signing of a document, which also promises denuclearisation for the Korean Peninsula, brings back hope in the peaceful resolution of all conflicts and in world peace and security. Both leaders showed that they are able to understand what a great risk to world peace they faced. They took a reasonable and historic step towards peace and security in the world.

Furthermore, President Pahor stresses the political wisdom and consistency of the South Korean President Moon, who has, often without support, sincerely believed in this meeting since assuming office and worked towards this event. The fact that China significantly contributed to this meeting and that it was also supported by Japan allows us to have moderate optimism that one of the most worrying areas of conflict in the world might find permanent peace.
