Kim nuclear summit praised, but big questions loom

The US hopes to see "major disarmament" by North Korea by the end of 2020, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says.

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.

Trump, who said this week that North Korea's nuclear program is "very substantial, " has also softened his rhetoric - suspending military exercises and scaling back his demands for what North Korea must do to receive relief from sanctions.

Several U.S. lawmakers expressed their approval of Trump's meeting with Kim, but said they were skeptical of the U.S. leader's declaration that North Korea no longer poses a nuclear threat. "They can't threaten the United States in that way". In return, Trump has promised to stop US military drills in South Korea.

The United States maintains about 28,500 soldiers in South Korea, which remains in a technical state of war with the North after the 1950-53 Korean War ended in a truce rather than a peace treaty. "Maybe in a year you'll be interviewing and I'll say I made a mistake".

The five South Korean women arrested for causing trouble in Orchard Road during the Trump-Kim summit have been repatriated, said the police. No longer - 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.

He characterized them as 'very expensive, ' however, and portrayed their end as an economic decision rather than a negotiated concession that the USA had previously said it wouldn't budge on.

"For now, there still is a need to find out the exact meaning and intention of President Trump's remarks", a spokesman for South Korea's presidential office said, reacting to the surprise announcement.

In public, at least, South Korea's leader sought to put a positive spin on the summit's outcome.

Kimmel show personality Guillermo Rodriguez and the host proceeded to sit down for a mock summit to sign their own version of the "friendship agreement" that Trump and Kim signed. Will he then withdraw the 29,000 USA troops out of South Korea that have served as a guarantor for the ally against post-war Japan, North Korea, and now a rising China over 68 years?

There has been deep scepticism about the agreement, with observers saying it lacked detail on how North Korea would give up its nuclear weapons and how that process would be verified.

State media also said that Trump agreed to lift sanctions and promised unspecified security guarantees. I said, 'I want to stop that and I will stop that, and I think it's very provocative'. The next military exercise is scheduled for August, and in years past, has drawn thousands of troops from the U.S., South Korea and other countries. -South Korean drills was met with concern.

In South Korea, the liberal Kyunghyang Shinmun newspaper said Trump and Kim have started a "march of peace" to end almost seven decades of hostility and pave the way for permanent peace and prosperity on the peninsula.
