The day on which their conversations in Hanoi collapsed last month, President Donald Trump gave North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a piece of paper containing a blunt call for the transfer of Pyongyang's nuclear weapons and bomb fuel to the United States according to the document seen by Reuters.
Trump gave Kim both Korean and English-language versions of the US position at Hanoi Metropole Hotel on February 28, according to a source familiar with the discussions, and spoke on condition of anonymity. It was the first time that Trump himself had explicitly defined what he meant by the nuclear matter directly to Kim, the source said.
A lunch between the two leaders was canceled the same day. While each page has not provided a full account of why the Summit collapsed, the document can help explain it.
The existence of the document was first mentioned by the White House, the National Security Adviser John Bolton, in television interviews he gave after the summit for two days. Bolton did not publish in these interviews the key US expectation contained in the document that North Korea should transfer its nuclear weapons and fissile materials to the United States.

Th e document appeared to represent Bolton's long-standing and hard "Libya model" of denuclearisation, which North Korea has repeatedly rejected. It was probably probably seen by Kim as abusive and provocative, analysts said.
Trump had previously dissociated himself from public comments from Bolton's approach and said that a "Libya model" would only be used if an agreement could not be reached. 19659002] The idea of North Korea, which left its weapons, was first proposed by Bolton in 2004. He resurrected the proposal last year when Trump called him national security advisor.

The White House did not respond promptly to a request for comment. The Prime Minister refused to comment on what would be a classified document.
After the summit, a North Korean official accused Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo of "gangster-like" claims and said Pyongyang was considering suspending talks with the United States and could reconsider his self-imposed ban on missile and nuclear tests.
The English version of the document that Reuters had seen required North Korea's nuclear infrastructure, chemical and biological warfare and related uses; and ballistic missiles, launchers and associated facilities.
In addition to the call for the transfer of Pyongyang's nuclear weapons and bomb fuel, the document had four other important points.

Last year, North Korean officials called Bolton's plan "absurd" and noted the "miserable fate" that took place in Gaddafi. 19659002] When North Korea threatened to cancel the Singapore Summit, Trump said in May 2018 that he did not pursue a "Libya model" and that he was seeking an agreement that would protect Kim.
He would be there, he would be driving his country, his country would be very rich, "Trump said at that time.
