The day their talks in Hanoi collapsed last month, US President Donald Trump handed the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, a piece of paper that included a direct call for the transfer of nuclear weapons and the fuel from the Pyongyang bombs to the United States, according to the document seen by Reuters.


Trump Kim gave the Korean and English version of the US position. at the Metropole Hotel in Hanoi on February 28, according to a source familiar with the discussions, who spoke on condition of anonymity. The source said this was the first time Trump had explicitly defined what the denuclearize of the Korean peninsula meant directly.


Lunch was held between the two leaders on the same day. While neither side has fully explained why the summit collapsed, the document could help explain it.



The White House national security adviser John Bolton initially said in a television interview after the two-day summit that the document was first reported. In those interviews, Bolton did not reveal the basic US expectations in the document that North Korea must transfer its nuclear weapons and fissile materials to the United States.
