  • Denuclearization deal between Trump Kim is vague on details

North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un listens to U.S. President Donald Trump as they meet in a one-on-one bilateral session at the start of their summit at the Capella Hotel on the resort island of Sentosa, Singapore, June 12, 2018.

At the first-ever meeting between sitting leaders of the United States and North Korea on Tuesday in Singapore, Trump and Kim pledged in a joint statement to work toward the "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

Defence Minister Itsunori Onodera said Japan saw "US-South Korean joint exercises and the US military presence in South Korea as vital to security in East Asia".

Pompeo said he expects the USA would next speak to North Korean officials "fairly quickly after we return to our home countries", adding he was "very confident" that some form of engagement would occur in the next week. "He was not leaving the summit without claiming he made a deal", Kimmel said. In return, Trump has promised to stop USA military drills in South Korea. Starting with Kim Il-sung, North Korean leaders have passed down their rule to their heirs.

"Sanctions played a big role, but they'll come off at that point, I hope it's going to be soon", he said, adding he looked forward to taking them off.

The tweet followed a New York Times story on the Trump administration's lack of scientific expertise, the president's questioning of the honesty of the American media at an global summit in Canada and his dismissal of diplomatic expertise in favour of using a "touch and feel" approach in his talks with Kim.

But he said that was no longer the case, and everyone can "sleep well tonight".

President Donald Trump falsely declared victory after his meeting with North Korea's leader and twisted history in celebrating his summit with Kim Jong Un.

This has been taken to indicate that the United States would grant concessions to Pyongyang along the way. The presidential center of the former Republican president George W Bush has been tweeting about North Korea's abuses, giving a clear indication of how he views the matter.

Pompeo faced immediate questioning from his traveling press about the content of the agreement with North Korea.

Suga, Japan's top government spokesman, welcomed the easing of tensions on the Korean Peninsula because of the Trump-Kim summit.

The president said there was no tit-for-tat deal with Pyongyang where there is denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula in exchange for an end to USA military exercises with South Korea.

Critics have said the encounter between Trump and Kim was more style than substance, producing a document short on details about the key issue of the North's atomic weapons.

And given the size and scope of Pyongyang's program, will Trump also demand an agreement with them include the removal of all nuclear weapons material, including research, development, and raw materials, and does not include any "sunset clauses" on the resumption of enrichment work?

"Kim Jong Un has proved to be a pretty ruthless leader in North Korea, and I'm not sure this sort of speed dating of a 45-minute one-on-one meeting. would suggest that there's nothing to be concerned about", he said.

Trump also is wrong in saying "nothing happened" in return. "Well I think without the rhetoric we wouldn't have been here".

"He's dealing with obviously very tough people, in particular the generals and others", Trump said during a CBS interview. -South Korean drills was met with concern. He said he planned to continue sharing the view with Washington and Seoul. The next scheduled major exercise, involving tens of thousands of troops, normally would be held in August. "He's an incredible guy", Trump said.
