The President of the of , Donald Trump, praised supreme leader Kim Jong Un on Sunday for holding a massive military parade “without the customary display of nuclear ” to celebrate his country’s 70th anniversary.

The President tweeted: “North has just staged their parade, celebrating 70th anniversary of founding, without the customary display of nuclear missiles. Theme was peace and economic development. “Experts believe that North cut out the nuclear missiles to show  its commitment to denuclearize.”

“This is a big and very positive statement from North Korea. Thank you To Chairman Kim. We will both prove everyone wrong! There is nothing like good dialogue from two people that like each other! Much better than before I took office.”

On Sep 6, North Korean leader has reiterated his commitment to denuclearization, stating that he would like to achieve complete denuclearization within President Donald Trump’s first term. Additionally, the North Korean leader is allegedly seeking a formal end to the Korean war, according to sources.

President Trump pounced on the good news:

Secretary of State , however, took a much more measured approach, stating that a lot of work was still needed to be done.

“We haven’t had any nuclear tests, we haven’t had any missile tests, which we consider a good thing,” Pomepo said, “But the work of convincing Chairman Kim to make the strategic shift that we’ve talked about for a brighter for the people of North Korea continues.”

Renewed peace sentiment comes amid several gestures of goodwill from North Korea, such as the release of US prisoners and returning the remains of US soldiers that fought in the Korean war.

However, officials say that Kim will need assurances from the US and Korea in order to justify complete demilitarization. President Moon Jae-in and Kim will meet on September 18, where it is expected that peace talks will continue.
