India welcomes talks between Kim, Trump, calls the entire episode as a 'positive development'

New Delhi, June 12 (IBNS): India on Tuesday welcomed the meeting between US President Donald Trump and Nother Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore and said it was a 'positive development' between the two nations.

A statement issued by India's Ministry of External Affairs said: "India welcomes the United States - DPRK Summit held in Singapore. This is a positive development. India has always supported all efforts to bring about peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula through dialogue and diplomacy."

"We hope that the outcomes of the U.S.-DPRK Summit will be implemented, thus paving the way for lasting peace and stability in the Korean Peninsula," it said.

"We also hope that the resolution of the Korean Peninsula issue will take into account and address our concerns about proliferation linkages extending to India’s neighbourhood," it said.

Ending all dilemma, Kim and Trump met in Singapore on Tuesday.

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday described his bond with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his country as "special".

Trump said this after signing a joint statement with Kim at the US-North Korea Summit, which was held in Singapore on Tuesday.

Addressing a joint press conference, Trump said: "We developed a very special bond."

Kim on Tuesday assured that the denuclearisation process will begin soon.

During the brief media interaction, Kim said: "The world will see a major change."

Trump, on the other hand, was found praising the US' new friendly ties with North Korea.
2017 witnessed US President Donald Trump slamming North Korean leader Kim Jong-un as the Asian nation continued to conduct several of its missile tests, teasing world peace and tranquillity and often threatening to trigger a war.

The situation became far tensed when North Korea tested an inter-continental ballistic missile (ICBM) that the nation said was capable of striking US mainland.

The United Nations Security Council imposed strong new sanctions against the Asian nation after its Nov 29 launch of a nuclear-capable weapon.

Trump and North Korea continued to exchange barbs earlier this year too.
