President Trump meets Kim Jong Un

Postado Junho 13, 2018

President Trump calls North Korea leader Kim Jong Un "talented" and says he "loves his country" following a nuclear summit in Singapore.

"We are hopeful this summit will have set the conditions for future successful talks", Pompeo said yesterday evening.

"The June 12 Sentosa Agreement will be recorded as a historic event that has helped break down the last remaining cold war legacy on Earth".

North Korea should be asked to rejoin the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty which it left in 1994, and should be obliged to join the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, even though the United States is not itself a member, he said. The US forces in South Korea, meanwhile, told Stars and Stripes magazine that it had not received updated guidance on cessation of training exercises, and "will continue with our current military posture until we receive updated guidance".

Trump and Kim pledged at the historic summit in Singapore to move to a denuclearization of the North, while providing little on the specific plan and verification.

It was not immediately clear what specific progress, if any, had been made in preliminary discussions between USA and North Korean officials.

"However we think that it is crucial to pursue various solutions for better dialogue".

The US president had an unusually light public schedule the day before the summit and holed up in his hotel the whole afternoon and evening - although he was tweeting very early on D-day and again on his way to the meeting.

US forces in South Korea said it has "received no updated guidance on the execution or cessation of training exercises" and will continue to coordinate with South Korean partners and maintain the current posture until it receives an updated guidance from the Department of Defense or the Indo-Pacific Command. Kim didn't confirm and extend a moratorium on testing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles; he didn't say he'd detail his arsenals or open them to inspection.

Rodman, who has previously boasted of his role in bringing the two leaders together, described how he always believed in helping North Korea.

A spokeswoman for U.S. military forces in Korea said it had not received any direction to cease joint military drills.

Granted, the US concessions are mostly reversible. "I'm not trying to unify South Korea and North Korea".

Trump struck an optimistic tone about his talks with Kim.

After almost five hours of unprecedented talks between Trump and Kim, the two leaders signed a document in which Kim "reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula" and the USA agreed to "provide security guarantees".

It's the first ever meeting between a sitting US president and North Korean leader.

The moment, as it played out, was slightly awkward, with Mr Kim seen staring at the ground and Mr Trump fidgeting with his hands. President Trump committed to provide security guarantees to the DPRK, and Chairman Kim Jong Un reaffirmed his firm and unwavering commitment to complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.
