Trump claims progress after Kim summit

The summit concluded with Trump and Kim agreeing to a plan to denuclearize North Korea that left the details for later.

The meeting was the first time a sitting USA president has met North Korea's leader, and caps a remarkable turnaround for the two.

Trump had a 40-minute private talk with Kim (with translators present), followed by an expanded bilateral talk and working lunch. China, the northern neighbor of Pyongyang, said it would be willing to play a constructive role in further U.S. "You've got to take advantage of this momentum".

But the joint statement shows little evidence North Korea is guaranteed to change its provocative behavior, according to Richardson. "Maybe in a year you'll be interviewing and I'll say I made a mistake". Along the way, Trump tossed out pronouncements on US alliances, human rights, and the nature of the accord that he and Kim had signed. We fly in bombers from Guam... to practice and drop bombs all over the place and then go back to Guam. Now and in the months since Trump pulled out of the Iranian nuclear deal, Iranian leaders have sought to deliver one consistent message to North Korea: President Trump is an unreliable partner.

Experts believe the North is close to being able to target the entire USA mainland with its nuclear-armed missiles, and while there's deep scepticism that Kim will quickly give up those hard-won nukes, there's also some hope that diplomacy can replace the animosity between the United States and the North.

Prime Minister Theresa May's spokesman said North Korea's commitment to denuclearization is a sign that Pyongyang might finally be turning a corner.

The president revealed his decision after a historic summit Tuesday with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore.

"This was unfortunate but this is typical of the North Koreans".

"We appreciate President Trump's recent comments about our family", they said. They never say yes or no.

If he was forced to negotiate by USA pressure, it certainly wasn't obvious.

In Singapore on Tuesday, the president of the United States demonstrated that he has the authority to give unconditional pardons not only to felons at home, but also on the global stage. "There are too many cooks in the kitchen, too many messengers within the administration".

Hayden served as director of the National Security Council during the administration of President George W. Bush and as Central Intelligence Agency chief under President Barack Obama.

Warmbier was a student at University of Virginia who was arrested by North Korean authorities in January 2016 for stealing a propaganda poster and sentenced to 15 years in prison with hard labor.

"My sense is that Kim Jong Un has a broader vision than his father, even his grandfather", Richardson said.

He also said he wanted to bring United States troops home - although he did not specify a timeframe. I think he's going to start now. You have South Korea, you have China, and they own the land in the middle.

"No-one has shown more contempt for other nations and for the wellbeing of their own people than the depraved regime in North Korea", Mr Trump said during his infamous "little rocket man" speech to the United Nations previous year.

Such talk may be premature, however. The two sides promised to hold follow-up negotiations. "In North Korea, art can only be lovely".
