Trump added that he appreciates the help that Russia and China have provided concerning North Korea.
On Wednesday, Putin encouraged the United States to continue constructive dialogue with North Korea on talks concerning the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
Putin said that denuclearization of the North Korean peninsula was possible, however it was important to begin working on establishing trust between the parties.
The Russian president emphasized that North Korea needed security and sovereignty guarantees that are achievable through the reinstatement of the power of international law.
Moreover, Putin said he was unsure about resuming six-party talks on denuclearization at this point, but such format may be useful in providing North Korea with international security guarantees.
The Six-party talks on North Korea’s denuclearization started back in 2003 and in addition to that country involved the United States, Russia, China, Japan and South Korea. The last round of the six-party talks took place in 2007.
