Qatar has welcomed the meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un yesterday in Singapore.
In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the Trump-Kim meeting was a historical precedent promising the further easing of tensions on the Korean Peninsula and reaching a binding agreement under which the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula would be achieved.
“Achieving a comprehensive and satisfactory solution for all parties and through dialogue and peaceful means will end decades of the conflict,” the statement said. “It will spread security and tranquillity among North Korea’s neighbours.”
The statement pointed out that the outcome of the summit will help efforts to curb the spread of nuclear weapons around the world, “and perhaps that step is significant for the Middle East, which Qatar fears to become a nuclear racing arena, unless the situation of escalation is contained by activating peaceful means to resolve disputes and differences and to reduce the nuclear ambitions of all parties.”
Qatar expressed satisfaction over the success of the meeting and wished it would lead to sustainable peace on the Korean peninsula.
