TOKYO, June 12 (Bernama) -- Malaysia and Japan are hoping for a successful outcome of the historic meeting today between United States President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore.
In a joint press conference here, visiting Malaysian Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his Japan counterpart Shinzo Abe agreed that the meeting was a step forward towards the right direction for a bright future.
Dr Mahathir said he hoped that the US and North Korea would accept the fact that in their negotiations, both sides must be prepared to give in on certain issues in order to reach a good conclusion.
"Expecting only one side to give in would not result in a very positive conclusion," he said.
Trump and Kim meet today at the resort island of Sentosa, Singapore, and are expected to discuss Pyongyang's nuclear disarmament in return for Washington's security assurances.....
