Trump and Kim shake hands in scene complex as their rivalry

13 June, 2018, 23:12 | Author: Wade Massey

"Just landed - a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office", he wrote in the first of three tweets about the summit.

"Our Country's biggest enemy is the Fake News so easily promulgated by fools!"

In return, Mr Trump, to the surprise of US ally South Korea and his own military, said he would end joint US-South Korea military exercises. Lawmakers, analysts and allies have hailed the effort but questioned the substance of what was achieved.

His comments come a day after an unprecedented meeting between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore.

The papers seem to reflect North Korea's desire to portray itself as a legitimate player on the global stage. "Hope does not equal reality".

The Rodong Sinmun, the ruling Workers' Party newspaper, focused on photographs of Kim and Mr Trump shaking hands. Ri is best remembered outside North Korea for her emotional deliveries of the deaths of Kim Jong Il and Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Un's father and grandfather. "So is a dangerously naive president".

US Forces Korea said it had received no new instructions about its scheduled training exercises, including this summer's Ulchi Freedom Guardian. Previous year it tested long-range missiles that could reach the US mainland, although it remains unclear if it has mastered the technology to deliver a nuclear warhead that could re-enter the atmosphere and hit its target.

The relationship between North Korea and the US will be "terrific", said US President Donald Trump, just minutes after meeting North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for the first time.

"But we will be stopping the war games".

Trump vowed to rain down "fire and fury" on Pyongyang if it threatened the United States, but instead in Singapore it was compliments that flowed, as the U.S. leader described Kim as "talented" and said they had forged a "special bond".

Backdrops of U.S. and North Korean flags, both red white and blue, were also prominent in the Rodong Sinmun, which has previously lashed the United States as a "gangster-like imperialist", and "cancer-like entity". "No longer - sleep well tonight!" Major events, like the 2018 Olympics in which North Korea sent a delegation of athletes, cheerleaders, and high-ranking officials, also faced near complete media censorship.

"So amusing to watch the Fake News, especially NBC and CNN", he wrote on Twitter. "But there was a great deal of work done that is beyond what was seen in the final document that will be the place that we will begin when we return to our conversations". 500 days ago they would have "begged" for this deal-looked like war would break out.

"I am ... confident they understand that there will be in-depth verification", Pompeo said, adding that the initial agreement between Trump and Kim had not captured all of what had been agreed by the two sides.

Meeting with staged ceremony on a Singapore island, Trump and Kim came together for a summit that seemed just unthinkable months ago, clasping hands in front of a row of alternating US and North Korean flags, holding a one-on-one meeting, additional talks with advisers and a working lunch.

"I do trust him, yeah", Trump said. "At this juncture, I don't think we know enough to challenge or celebrate".

And finally, North Korea and the USA commit to recovering remains of Prisoners Of War and Missing In Action soldiers from the Korean War, almost 70 years ago, including the immediate repatriation of those already identified. That leads to further concerns that Trump may make further frivolous concessions in a bid to gain quick results simply out of political motives.
