Tramp – Kim talks

The historic meeting between Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un took place in Vietnam’s capital of Hanoi last week.

The centre of the summit was a denuclearisation between the two countries. However, the talks ended earlier than planned, and people cancelled the signing ceremony.

President Trump explained his decision to walk away from the denuclearisation deal in a press conference. He said that North Korea was willing to denuke a large portion of the areas that the USA wanted it to, but North Korea wanted all of its sanctions lifted for that, and the USA could not do this. Nevertheless, Trump said that the countries conducted the talks in a constructive and friendly manner and that work and talks between them will continue.

Difficult words: summit (a meeting), denuke (short for denuclearise – get rid of nuclear weapons), sanctions (putting limits to what a country can and cannot do), lift (end, stop).
