  • Korean Americans Respond To 'Surreal' Trump-Kim Summit

Shortly after Trump's presser, a spokesperson from South Korea's Blue House (its executive branch of government) said that "the meaning and intention" of the United States president's remarks regarding the war games "require more clear understanding".

North Korea is believed to possess more than 50 nuclear warheads, with its atomic program spread across more than 100 sites constructed over decades to evade worldwide inspections. Trump briefly called off the summit a few weeks ago before agreeing again to the meeting.

The meeting, long sought by Pyongyang, will be the first ever between a serving United States president and a North Korean leader, and will focus on the nuclear bombs and ballistic missiles the North has spent decades developing.

Trump's diplomacy "sends all the wrong messages to China, North Korea and Russian Federation", said Malcolm Davis, a senior analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute. The statement made clear that Pyongyang was expecting USA concessions before any moves by the North. "It clearly was not part of the declaration and so we have to take the declaration as being the areas of agreement and build on that", Ms Bishop said.

North Korea has been an isolated nation since it first divided from South Korea after the end of World War II in 1945.

Shaheen and other lawmakers added there should be no cancellation of US military exercises in Asia, as Trump suggested, without first consulting South Korea and other allies in the region.

"The President's comments [were] very positive and the Statement touches on a new relationship with North Korea, and end to the Korean War, complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and recovering POW/MIA remains - all positive commitments", he said.

Yet Kimball is anxious by the hard history of negotiations with North Korea, combined with the lack of any timetable or road map for further steps in the latest agreement. Alongside Trump were other big administration figures including secretary of state Mike Pompeo, White House chief of staff John Kelly, national security adviser John Bolton and White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Now that both leaders are on their way back to their own countries, we are left with many photos of the bromance du jour, as well as a signed statement - and a plethora of questions.

The US has long held the view that North Korea's illegitimate military activities can't be traded away for its right to do legitimate military activities.

White House says Trump plans early summit departure
Kim said that the "world will see a major change" and he and Trump "decided to leave the past behind" as they put pen to paper. Few people could take over North Korea at the age of 26 and "run it tough", Trump mused.


The reported agreement, if confirmed by the United States, could be considered as a concession by Trump because USA officials had called for the North to take swift disarmament measures before getting major outside concessions and benefits.

"Well, he is very talented", Mr Trump said.

"If the goal is to begin to unravel the U.S. -Japan and U.S".

But the South Carolina Republican said Trump would face opposition to any move to withdraw American forces from South Korea.

Sen. Lindsey Graham does not have an issue with halting joint military exercises between the USA and South Korea while discussions with North Korea continue.

"U.S. gives up one of our biggest negotiating chips - military exercises", Sen.

"We overcame all kinds of skepticism and speculations about this summit", Kim said, "and I believe that this is good prelude for peace".

We firmly reject any false equivalency between North Korea's illegal nuclear and missile programs, which are enormously destabilizing and have been repeatedly condemned by the UN Security Council, and our long-standing joint activities with our allies, which are transparent and defensive in nature.

Cheered on by crowds of onlookers, Kim toured the Marina Bay Sands, a three-tower complex with the replica of a cruise ship spanning across the 57th floors, strolled along the architecturally stunning Jubilee Bridge and took a selfie with Singapore's foreign minister.

Pentagon officials were not immediately able to provide any details about Mr Trump's remarks on suspending drills, something that the U.S. military has long resisted. "China of course supports it".
