According to the president, Kim agreed to a “complete denuclearization of the peninsula that will begin very fast.” “There are no limits to what North Korea can achieve if it abandons its nuclear weapons,” he said.

In fact, Kim is suspected of ordering the murder of his brother with a toxic agent, the execution of his uncle with a firing squad and of being responsible for the death of the American university Otto Warmbier, who spent 18 months in prison in Korea North and died shortly after being released.
