I want to express my hope that all of the people of Korea, North Korea and South, can someday live in harmony, prosperity, and peace. And it looks like it could happen. When I began, people were saying that was an impossibility. They said there were two alternatives. Let them have what they have, or go to war. And now we have a much better alternative than anybody thought even possible.
I'll be meeting with Kim Jong Un in the coming weeks as we seek to denuclearise the North Korean area and the entire Korean peninsula. Hopefully, the day will come when Olympic athletes can compete on a Korean peninsula that is free of nuclear weapons and where all Koreans can live together and can share their dreams. It'd be a wonderful thing to do.
